Greenman: If you walk within a forest of ancient wood and get a feeling you are not alone, the chances are he is with you. He’s been with mankind from the beginning and is round us more than ever, helping us make contact with our natural environment and stop us destroying our fragile world.

It was great to meet Jaydee Crochet – The Home of the Flug – a new accessory. So what is a Flug? Is it a Scarf? NO – Is it a Shawl? NO – Is it a Wrap? sort of…imagine the softness of a fluffy teddy, the lightness of feathers the warmth of a hug… well that is a FLUG! Jaydee Crochet had a vast collection on display including Irish Lacework and pretty crochet accessories.
