The day was opened by local MP, Jonathon Djanogly, and the lovely, cheerful sounds of Morris dancers. It was truly festive!
The choir cheered us all up with their singing!
What would a British fair be without traditional Maypole dancing?
...and cakes of course!
As you know, I've been sewing my socks off in preparation for this day, and here is my stall! Open for business!
Please excuse the windswept hair...my pin curls could not stand up to the damp weather! (...and yes, I wore heels, regardless of the soggy, wet grass! I did, however, abandon these in favour of Wellies to pack up at the end of the day!)
Here is one last project I prepared for the fair, and haven't shared yet. A sunny, happy beach day collage titled 'Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside.'
...but NOT on a day like today! Hee-hee...
It might look dry and somewhat bright, but these pictures were taken before buckets of rain arrived. At one point the church choir were huddled under my gazebo, piano in tow, belting out Greensleeves while the rain streamed down our little tents. I kept having to lift the gazebo roof to get rid of the heavy puddles settling on top, weighing the roof down!
But, all things considered, we had a wonderful day, a truly British affair!
Blessings to you, wherever you are, rain or shine!
