father's day & a disappointing handmade market
Well today is Father's Day - and here's some love for all the dad's out there! Me and my sister took our dad out for an indulgent breakfast at a new coffee shop near my house called The Bake House - we had never been there before but it turned out to be really well priced and scrumptious! And the decor is beautiful, I will certainly go back and knit there and snap some more pictures.
this shop that does excellent 8-bit design greetings cards - do have a look. Cheeky of me but they do make brilliant cross stitch patterns and so I did the Star Wars one (rather than buy a card, I really wanted to make something for dad) and it worked up in about 5 hours or so - sweet!
Following breakfast I finally went to Stockport town centre to investigate The Handmade Market which is on every 3rd Sunday of the month. I had high hopes for the market but I am sorry to say it was really very disappointing. It was held in the Market Hall (which is the large historic glass market hall in our town centre) and there were not enough stalls in the market to make it an appealing visit.
Did you make your dad anything special for Father's Day, or get up to anything nice?
