A Cornish Trip & The Poppy Treffry Store

Thursday 9 June 2016

Taking time out to re-charge Cornish style and a visit to the lovely Poppy Treffry's store.


I'm so excited to be writing again after a little break by the sea and a chance to soak up seaside life. Living literally in the middle of the UK makes you want for the sand, sea and time with the family winding down by the coast.

Today is a travel blogger style post but hey...I've added a little crafty bit here too! Here are a few pictures I took with my Olympen Pen E after learning a lot from Emily Quinton on the Makelight course.

Pastel houses, VW campers, boats and Cornish Palms ....

One of the highlights of my trip was a visit to the Poppy Treffry store in St.Ives.

I love her pretty Cornish life inspired fabric prints, quirky cards and her orange lip balm is just gorgeous (oh it has a Singer sewing machine on the lid, so what's not to like?). I love that Poppy and her team of sewers hand make all the items in the store on vintage Singer sewing machines, similar to the ones I use at my Crafternoons.

This trip I picked up a stash of cards for the sewing ladies in my life. Would you love to receive this card on your birthday?

And all this pretty print fabrics....

I can't wait to pop down to Cornwall again to get my fix of Cornish life and pretty sewing supplies.

We stayed at The Old Dairy, Godolphin Cross Nr. Helston , a very family friendly self catering stay. Our Little L loved feeding the hens and pigs, it was very quiet with a short walk to the National Trust's Godolphin Estate.

I'm now ready for a wonderful Summer of Crafternoons!

Happy Crafting,
