Camping in the Cotswolds

A few weekends ago the weather was actually kind enough to allow us to pack up and go camping.  We stayed at an organic farm in the Cotswolds - and whilst some would consider the compost toilets a disadvantage (honestly, they weren't that bad!) a definite advantage was the organic farm shop where I made a couple of purchases.

The aran wool from organically reared Lleyn sheep will hopefully become a Study Hall Vest designed by Vladimira Cmorgej.  

I love the pattern on this Sarong from India which I believe is block printed.  I am undecided however whether to leave it as a single piece of fabric and use it as a summer shawl, or whether to cut it up and make it into a light summer blouse which I think I would get more wear out of.  Is it sacrilege to cut up a brand new item of clothing?  One for me to ponder...

In the meantime, I did take loads of photos of things that caught my eye in Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-in-the-Wold.  Some are craft related but on viewing them I realised they were mostly about food!

Tea shops...

... and cake (see what I mean!)

Sadly this gorgeous looking shop was shut. :(

Yes - I did have an ice-cream!

Me looking very smug outside a gorgeous vintage shop in Stow.

I really would recommend the Cotswolds and the campsite was very nice if the thought of compost toilets hasn't put you off!

  1. Looks like you were fortunate with the weather. We were in the Cotswolds last Easter, it's such pretty countryside.
