I realised that I haven't shown the angels I made and sent winging around the world in return for all the wonders I received in my swap.
Now they have all been received I can show them here.
Here's Priscilla, (named by my DD as she looks like the Queen of the Desert!)
She is now living at Neil's.
and here is Charmeine, Angel of Harmony.... who landed at Ann B's
I'll start adding the rest to each post up until Christmas.
St George's Hall is one of Liverpool's iconic Victorian masterpieces of architecture which, it is said, is Prince Charles favourite building.
Designed by Harvey Lonsdale Elmes and opened in 1854, it has a great organ, a beautiful Minton floor, a concert hall, a court room and the vast main hall which is used for many major events. Charles Dickens performed readings of his books there and later this month his great, great, great grandson will read from A Christmas Carol.
At the weekend I visited the Winter Craft event where over 150 stall sold their quality hand crafted creations.
My friend Hazel and her daughter Sarah on their stand, Vintage FAIRYTALE, selling their lovely cake stands and candles made from antique china.
Sarah of Twigtwisters makes the most amazing animal sculptures from willow. I bought a lovely heart from her and discovered she gives courses on this traditional craft so guess who plans to join her next year?!? ME!
This was one of the best craft shows I have attended, so many unusual crafts of high standard and I could have spent a fortune, if I had had one to spend! I did empty my purse then also spent euros which one stallholder was willing to take! This ring is what I bought with my euros.... a really wacky ring which is made from Derwent coloured pencil crayons which have been fused before they were cut and formed into an amazing range of jewellery.

Marbled columns and statues set a beautiful venue and besides this vast hall space there were many stalls in the side rooms.
