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!
... and cake (see what I mean!)
Sadly this gorgeous looking shop was shut. :(
Yes - I did have an ice-cream!

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