Origin Craft Fair 2010

I had a lovely weekend in London
(but tiring!! I'm still aching from the half marathon on Sunday! But very pleased that me and my sister in law completed it! Hooray!!).
On Saturday I popped along to the Origin Craft Fair in Spitalfields Market....there were lots to stands to see so I thought I'd share some of my favourites....
Being a map fan this gorgeous wall art by Claire Brewster really caught my eye...
I unexpectedly picked up my first christmas present from Thornback and Peel! :D
Here's some work below from Lauren Van Helmond....I love her characters, great work:

This thread art really caught my eye, I hadn't seen anything like it before, it was very striking.
All created by artist Debbie Smyth. Debbie has an exhibition on at the moment called ThreadBare which is at Manchester Craft and Design Centre until the end of October.
I wish I was closer to be able to check it out more easily....so you'll have to let me know if you go!

and last but my no means least my lovely friend Abigail Brown had a lovely stand displaying her feathered creations! She really is a super talent...she will be at Origin until wednesday and I would definitely recommend a trip! Book online first if you can.
