The tea towel bag lady
This lady in the market makes beautiful bags out of upcycled linen tea towels, lined with cotton, with strong leather straps. She has a wonderful sewing machine that can produce a great variety of stitches.
I didn't buy any, but she agreed to pose with the donkey bag. I was born in Ireland, and we had a donkey tea towel, so I favoured this one, though all.of them were lovely.
The strangest creation was based on a tea towel from the Milk Marketing board, who had been trying to promote recipes with cream, seventies-style, by linking it with star signs! So, ♒, Aquarius, Cream of Spinach Soup! (I don't think so. I'm way too sexy for spinach soup. Anyway, I hate cream).
The market was cold, and quiet. However, I sold almost as many cards as I did in March, so that was ok. Tomorrow is an all-day affair. Fortunately I shall be in a gazebo. Winter has returned.
The WEA bookings are STILL not all sorted, and I am doing the data protection stuff too, so I get an email every ten minutes. I think I'd quite like to be replaced by a robot for some of these tasks.
PS The bag lady trades online ( not sure where) under the name pumpkin scone.
