Stitches and Craft Show

It was an EARLY day (3 am actually) and then a late arrival home. It was not as busy as I was expecting and there was SO MUCH goodness - it was a great flight/day out.

Here is a run down...

Kits to add to the to do list...



These are the fabrics I bought. Wool from Miss Jodie for this project and the red wool for a project in this book and LOTS of yummy scrummy fabric - my main purpose for the trip!



Had a go at all the make and takes sections - REALLY wanted to learn crochet - have got started - got to get the hold of the wool right before I graduate to the next step!




Patterns! Hats for boys and skirt for me!



I thought it would be nice if I picked up some goodies from the fair for my lovely blogger friends who do not make it to the show. Just leave a comment and I will draw the lucky winner this time next week!



It was SO GOOD to catch up with Miss Jodie - I nearly did not actually because... well... she is a busy lady and had lots of fans swamping her all day! I hope your mums eye is okay Jodie...

Boy I am weary today...
