I also got to look at the exhibitors stands and this one really caught my eye, this piece was made from felt by Bun Brough of Wild Wool Felts, she is a registered Art Therapist, Storyteller and Textile Artist. She does not have a web site yet, but is hoping to have one soon.
Below more of her unusual work.
I also like the bags here made by http://www.janecummins.co.uk/ she makes them from felt and laminated birch plywood. I think they are so unusual.
Alas the day comes to an end and I feel I could spend another day here. On the way out we we waved off by the Estonian Youth Project. Seen here, their clothes are made by hand from Native Sheep Wool, by girls from Saaremaa Island.

Cherry and Almond Tart. Here it is before cooking.......
.......And below just out of the oven. If I say so myself it was delicious, it was very similar to a Cherry Bakewell Tart, but looked like a Cobbler. Anyway, needles to say the whole family loved it and it was gone in one sitting. All they could say was "mum you must make this again". Happy families.
Still loads of cherries left, so if I have time I might try and make the Cherry Cheesecake also in the magazine.

Below a cockerel, can't remember the breed but he looked stunning.
I spent loads of time in the Craft tent, and saw some lovely things. They was a great emphasis on bags made from Harris Tweed and some gorgeous knitted jumpers. I bought myself a lovely lacy shawl made for mohair and silk, I think it will look stunning over a sleeveless dress on a summers evening. We just need some decent weather. There was a big tent dedicated to Scottish food and each stand were giving away freebies, I tasted some lovely sausages and cheese, lunch sorted. The day was great and the weather stayed fine.

Clematis Montana, an old favorite, this was growing in our old,old house 23 years ago, we have taken cuttings from it each time we have moved and it is still going strong. I think the term "a good do oer" springs to mind Geranium Johnson's Blue, a quiet, shy little flower. It almost goes unnoticed until it starts flowering, it seems to carry on if you keep dead heading.
