Bags of style!

This weekend, Saturday to be precise, is my first outing of the year at the Alton Craft Market. I always really look forward to visiting Alton and catching up with customers, many of whom have become friends.
It must be 5 years ago that I first had a stall there, in the Market Square and all I had to sell were my flower brooches.
They have been sent to countries that I can only dream of visiting.
Flower Power is still alive and kicking – In Full Bloom – you may say!
I’m often asked how long they take to make, but that’s only part of the process. I usually spend longer choosing the colours and textures to put together to create a flower, than I do with my crochet hook – and then there’s the choice of button for the centre – each one is a little labour of love!
Now at the moment, you may have noticed that I love making bags! That’s the great thing about having a creative hobby – some days I make teddy bears, some days I make flowers, but for many days I’ve been making bags!
And here they are …
all lined up and ready for the trip to Alton!
Just a breath of fresh air before hopping into a box for the journey!
Hop along yourself on Saturday. Alton is a super town and on Saturday the Craft Market teams up with the Farmers Market so there are stalls all the way down the High Street and up the lane into the old Market Square. Remember to say ‘Hello’ and stop for a chat – it’ll be lovely to see you.
