Hello peeps! I've been reading about everyone's lovely weekends and am glad to say I had one too.
On Saturday Mr C, Daughter C, Son-in-Law C and I went to a traditional village horticultural show as we had put entries in. Daughter C's work colleague lives there and is on the event committee so we did our bit to help her. The sun was hot and shiny, the birds were singing and we won some awards - what could be better?

|And in First Place, Mr C's Other Tomatoes (excuse funny bit of photo at top - a long story)|
|Daughter C took third place in Decorated Cupcakes. They thought she'd bought the bugs, but she'd made them from M&M's! Would have won otherwise.|
On Sunday I had a craft stall at a Fun Day and mini Music Festival. Again the weather triumphed but sadly people came just for the music really and I, like the other crafters, barely made back the fee I paid for the stall. On the plus side I had loads of really nice comments including a "Wow!" from a little girl with great taste. Still on the plus side I had a whole day of being able to sit, knit and listen to a great variety of music including folk, reggae, jazz, synth and samba.

Worst thing of the day? I broke one of my best beautiful Knit Pro knitting needles getting back into the car!
