So I’ve written about a WIP that was crochet and related to Chippenham Folk Festival, the dance and folk festival that JS and I went to at the beginning of June. I wanted to write about the craft fair we went to while we were there. I had to drag myself out of the tent, where I had been hiding with flu for a while, but I was really glad I did.
Yarny Things at Chippenham
There was one stall which had yarny things, and I bought a 3 mm crochet hook in order to make the crochet breakthrough. It didn’t really have anything else exciting — some drop spindles and some really expensive cotton yarn. Uninspiring.
There was a different stall which sold pewter shawl brooches, and I bought one. Beautiful. This is the best thing about craft, the beauty of it.
Little Things – Fimo Craft
Then I discovered Sue Cumming’s stall, Little Things. Absolutely nothing to do with knitting – but everything to do with Fimo, which is something that I have been dabbling in.
I spoke to her briefly and she gave me permission to take some photos of her craft. They speak for themselves.
Unfortunately, Sue doesn’t have a website or Etsy shop – I have found the Raggy Rat Shop which sells some of her creations, but the rest of the range is also incredible. If you ever get a chance to go to a fair where she has a stall, I urge you to take some time to pay attention to the amazing stuff she does. Scale isn’t really accurately represented in the photos – some of this stuff is smaller than your fingernail!
Do any of my readers have any experience with Fimo? My one attempt was fairly successful, although not on this scale!
