So! I’m planning on doing plenty of markets this Christmas, heres the Stitch City schedule for the coming weeks!
Sunday November 23rd – Rhiwbina’s Handmade Market.
This fair was so much fun last year, a great selection of makers and food stalls – tea, cake and mulled wine, and I came away with some great stuff. This years even promises to be even better!
Saturday 29th November – Cardiff Christmas Bazaar at the Abacus.
I’m really looking forward to spending the day at the Abacus and to taking part in this great event for charity. Along with some great stalls there will be live music, craft workshops and food and drink!
Sat/Sun 6th & 7th December – GIFT at Penarth Pier Pavillion
Penarth Pavillion are hosting this fantastic fair, featuring plenty of super talented makers in the beautiful surroundings of the pavillion gallery. After doing your Christmas shopping you can head to the cafe for tea or take a walk on the beach. Sounds nice!
This is a bit overdue, but my typewriter cushion was featured in the November issue of Buzz, a lovely local listings type Magazine which you can pick up for free in all kinds of shops, cafes and libraries(such as Howards Gardens) around Cardiff!
Just a quick post today as i’m having a super busy couple of weeks! I will be selling at the first Rhiwbina Handmade Market on 24th November:
There will be lots of great artists/designers/illustrators/crafters to buy from, as well as a food stall to get mince pies and mulled wine (which im pretty excited about!)
I will be selling my usual range from my online shop so a mixture of notebooks, cushions, totes and badges as well as a few other neat little gifts you might like the look of!See you there!
So since starting my job (may i add FULL TIME) it has been massively difficult to get work done, in the evenings i have no motivation whatsoever after answering emails all day, so that leaves the weekend, by which time i have completely lost track of what i was doing the week before! So from now on there will be a blog post every week, mostly to remind me of what I started/finished/am in the middle of…..
So today i went down to the Bay. It has to be the most photogenic place ive lived (not that theres anything wrong with Harrow…..)
This Cormorant below will get drawn at some point, i love them.
Mount Stuart Square has some proper nice buildings, i think i’ll be working from these for a bit, i’m meant to be doing more “Welsh themed” stuff but im struggling to think of things that arent rygby/sheep/dragon related. Any suggestions would be most welcome!
Oh and this is my new desk, which i havent really used properly since i moved here……
