So, Cottenham is over for another year. It was a great show, and I met lots of lovely people, and managed to catch up with several friends. It was also lovely to see someone I have known for nearly thirty years, but with whom I had lost touch. She has moved to that part of… Read More Taking Stock
I took some of my kimono cards to a show for the first time. Hooray! I sold all the ones I took with me. There are still some left on Etsy, though!
