THE BIG CHEESE


Today's outing was set in the shadows of one of Europe's largest Castles ~ the town of Caerphilly.

Each year the town comes to life as people of all ages come to The Big Cheese to experience an extravaganza of street entertainers, living history encampments, music, traditional funfair, falconry and of course craft and gift stalls . . . come on you know me by now!!



The sun wash shining, the company was great and the day was a success all round - to top it off I got to meet up with the lovely Ellen and Jill of Shepherd's Moon who were keeping themselves out of mischief on their wonderful stall.

Ellen is the face behind Shepherd's Moon, a traditional cottage industry run from the hub of her home. Each hand knitted item is created out of yarn spun by Ellen and woven from the loom made by her grandad for her gramdma.

As well as Ellen's gorgeous finished pieces she sells knitting books and CD's by Katherine Misegades . . . Ellen's Mum!

Why not pay Ellen a visit and browse her on-line store www.shepherdsmoon.co.uk
