Have spent the last three days at the Hampshire Country Show at Broadlands, Romsey, and I’m exhausted! I’ve only done smaller, one day shows before, so this is the first time I’ve been out to play with the big boys (and girls) and I like to think I held my own! I had a pitch together with my friend Sandy of www.sandibags.com and we tried to make our stall patriotic and inviting in honour of the jubilee, with rosettes, ivy, fairy lights and little red, white and blue flower arrangements. We had a great time and were very lucky with the weather the first two days, it managed to hold out until about 11am yesterday when the heavens opened with a vengeance and washed all the customers away! We were just glad it had stayed away for so long, as it had been threatened for the whole weekend, and at least it meant we could pack up early and get home to a nice hot bath!
I have several smaller shows lined up, then it’s off to the real biggie, the New Forest Show at New Park, Brockenhurst, on the 24th, 25th and 26th July, gulp!
Here are a few pictures from Broadlands when the stall was first set up, I was really pleased with it.
