WE ARE BACK ..............

That has been the quickest week of all time.
Saturday arrived at caravan.
Sunday went to Holker Hall Garden Festival
Monday met up with some friends for lunch in Ulverston
Tuesday went to Arnside & Silverdale
Wednesday went to Kendal and Grange-Over-Sands
Thursday sat outside the caravan all day
Friday went to Cartmel
Saturday came home.
If that was my holiday i've had it !

But look at the fantastic people we met and the work they do.

I couldnt resist this lovely ceramics stall owned by Jennifer & Adrian Bell.  It looked so pretty and I'm pleased to say you can buy things through their website.

This was the W.I. tent at Holker.  I got myself a W.I. Biscuit making book.

Cool Crafting , based in Milnthorpe Cumbria, drew us in with their lovely vintage fabrics, ribbons, and a great idea of a craft kit in a jam jar - Sew a felt bird.  This clever mother & daughter team run workshops, organise crafting parties and hen parties with a difference.  I had a lovely chat with Grace (the daughter) who was really bubbly and enthusiastic about all they do.
Have a look at their fantastic website.

We treated ourselves this year to Cream Tea in the hospitality tent.  It was lovely to sit down for a while and enjoy some lovely cake and a nice cup of tea.

I will tell you some more tales tomorrow.
Hope you are all still out there.
