One week to the Sherborne Castle Country Fair

So....... an update. We now have many restored footstool frames and more importantly, Bernard's fuel gauge and charging systems work, thanks to the fantastic family run commercial vehicle workshop in Poole! So all that's left  for us to do now is to weave about five footstool seats, clean and polish Bernard, redesign and build our display stand, re-polish four chair frames, make another egg basket and.......and......

Meanwhile on Saturday amid all of the preparation work, I realised that it had been one year to the day since we lost our beautiful cat Rodney. Time has flown. We were pretty much doing the same things last year preparing for Sherborne when he was suddenly taken ill, that months posts are here http://seatweaving.blogspot.com/2010_05_01_archive.html His mum is still with us, she will be 19 in September, but is a poor little soul now with wobbly back legs, a gammy eye and not much appetite for anything really. She's happy though, just as lovable as ever. So some memories of Rodders.....
