A couple of days ago, I received an order of manufactured soft toys. There is some really lovely stuff - old-fashioned characters like Paddington, Peter Rabbit, and Miffy, along with Elmer the Elephant, which is really really cute. Mind you, I always feel guilty buying in things. I took them to the Art & Craft Centre today to stock the shelves. It looks great - really full and colourful - but the ratio of manufactured : hand-made has definitely tilted the wrong way. I need to get busy again. On the plus side, the one weird owl I have left, and my union jack mammoth and hanging bears, all came alive in such colourful company. They looked wonderful!
Anyway, I haven't really got anything to post, I just wanted to show this video, if I can get it to work. We had our annual village show last weekend, and because we have a massive village green, lots of dedicated kite flying hobbyists come with their biggest and most fabulous kites. And look what we saw (cheers Austen):
