finding my inner sparkle, as it seems to have dimmed

Yesterday I went to ...

Sparkle! - A Contemporary Craft and Gourmet Food Fair.  

 It was held at The Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington, Middlesex. There were around one hundred exhibitors covering all manner of arts and crafts and gourmet foods. My favourites were generally all to do with fabrics and textiles. I loved the quirky ideas of Sew Sister and the pretty pictures and embroidered items from What Katie Did Next.  Mr Whizz Kid spent his time languishing in the Gourmet Food Section and pronounced Ishmael's Mother Curry Sauces the best. He also liked  all  the chocolates and couldn't resist Vanessa's Kitchen for her huge selection of bottled jams, pickles and chutneys.
