Bristol Harbour Festival

There has been a little stitching this weekend but not much as most of the time was spent at the Bristol Harbour Festival, hanging out with friends, drinking, eating and generally having a good time.

I didn't really get any good photos but here are a few snaps to give you an idea of what the festival was like.On Saturday we had beautiful blue skies and as you can see the harbour was packed full of all sorts of sea faring vessels.There were rows and rows of stalls selling foods and crafts
This charming man made me some paella for lunch. And for those of you with a sweet tooth there was plenty of confectionery available!
This is one of the many stages around the event for displays of music, dance and acrobatics.

This is a close up of a beautiful beaded bracelet that my friend Paula surprised me with. I love it!

And even though the skies were grey on Sunday there was still plenty of colour to be seen around the harbour. I loved this collection of canal boats with their colourful flags and splendid flower displays.

Oh my word, Angela, i was there on saturday. We got burnt in the sun, it caught us out as it was raining in wales. I can't believe we could have walked past each other!!!! We saw the Mathew sail which was fab.
