A murder is announced!

Constable Bailey
Last week I took part in my first ever murder mystery evening. As we were eating our fish and chips at the W.I. Constable Bailey arrived and announced that Sir Reginald Fortescue-Smyth had been pushed out of a window and was dead! It was up to us to find the murderer.
Several members of his family and employees then joined us, and we asked questions and listened to conversations.

Two more murders occurred!!!
He was killed because of that dreadful suit!
Incriminating documents were found.
And then the murderer was revealed.
I was totally wrong!!!! But had a great night out.

Bristol Wool Fair

Last week-end I spent  three lovely long days on Bristol Downs as a stall holder at Bristol Wool Fair. This was my biggest fair by far and I didn't know quite what to expect, especially as this was the first one!

I had such a fab time - met loads of lovely people and saw some truly beautiful things, as well as quirky and fun.
Had to treat myself to one of these - so pretty!

Beautiful needle felting

Beautiful colours
There was a sheep show, duck herding, alpacas, a blow-up tea room and marquees packed with goodies.

I met blog readers, instagram followers (I'm jopicklelily), Facebook friends and the lovely Linda from Made by Ewe in real life. Linda is a fellow blogger and we've commented but never met before!
