Snippets From A Day Out
I had a lovely day out at Sandown Stitch And Creative Craft Fair. There were so many interesting stalls that this post will have to run for several days. I took masses of pics (as promised) and these are just a few of them.
I particularly liked the work of Richard Box. This lovely man is a genius. He had done the most amazing collage work and the design and colours were terrific.
He was a wonderful cheerful soul and his work was simply stunning and very original. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org Sadly there is no website at present but one is planned. He holds courses at The WI Denman College at Abingdon, In Oxfordshire, which have amusing titles - 'Painting For The Petrified', 'Drawing For The Terrified', and the inevitable 'Picture It In Collage And Stitch'. I am sorely tempted.
I found this photo very amusing as he had just told me that his work was between £100 and £500 and some even more expensive. Even a tiny postcard size one was £45 ... so ... I think this '£10' was a 'typo' or referred to something else!

I had a Cath Kidston bag with me and was surprised to see almost exact copies for a fraction of the original price.
