It really doesn’t seem a year since the last Bridport Hat Festival, but it’s that time again already, and the sun shone and the people smiled and the town enjoyed itself for a whole silly weekend…

CecilyMae’s online shop is now ready, although not fully stocked, but head over there and grab yourself something lovely.  I’ll be adding more items really soon…

I was just going through my photo albums from the summer and stumbled across lots of really fabulous bright jolly sunshiney photos that didn’t make it onto the blog first time round so I thought I’d give them a second chance.  Look out for the shooting star in one of the lighthouse ones and for the Olympic Pizza rings…

This is fun!  Go over to Stylescope and pick the images you love.  It then tells you what kind of style personality you are and how to bring that style into your home.  I’m Sassy apparently which means that I like “playful colors, fun patterns, and an unabashed boldness—all acquired at very savvy prices. She knows her style, and she’s not afraid to take risks and have fun. When you visit a Sassy friend, you can’t help but smile.”  It’s pretty accurate I’d say.  In fact – I actually have the kettle shown in the second picture!

I’m finally relaxing after an exhausting non-stop weekend at the River Cottage Autumn Fair.  I sold so much bunting I ran out of ‘I’s, ‘A’s and ‘H’s.  There were lots of Harrys, Isabels, Daisys, and names ending in ‘ie’.  My stall was between two lovely ladies, one selling gorgeous pottery and one selling gorgeous leather things and handbags.  There were lots of fun things to buy and do including welly wanging, a vegetable fancy dress competition, puppet shows, cooking demonstrations and lots and lots of animals to look at.  I also was pleased to make some bunting for some of the other stall holders including this yummy mummy

Well who would have guessed that the last day of the rainy, cloudy, chilly ‘summer’ hols would be sunny, balmy and blue.  Typical.  Back to school and the sun comes out.  Oh well, this has been cheering me up…making peacocks and plates of fish out of lovely bright paper…

What a lot to choose from, and something for everyone I hope!  There’s wiggly worms and ditsy flowers, happy cups and funky fruit.  Oh, and some lobsters…..

Sewing, sewing, sewing.  All weekend.  New fabrics, old fabrics, plain fabrics, patterned fabrics.  Just sewing, sewing and sewing…
