It's been a fun few days.......on Thursday I went to the knitting & stitching show at Ally Pally with Jo and Karen......Oh my, what a fabulous day we had. Now that I am delving into the world of fabric, I can now appreciate what this show really represents. Anyone who is interested in any type of textiles would have a field day at this show.There were exhibitors with all kinds of wool, fabric, fibres, felt buttons and the list just goes on and on and on. We were all pretty much exhausted by about 3.30 and decided to leave then as I needed to get home for college at 7pm. Glad we did leave a little early, the traffic on the M1 was not that great and the weather started to deteriorate and I have driving ion heavy rain on the motorway, plus the fact that I may have been bankrupt if I stayed any longer!!!
Anyways, here are my purchases.
Some gorgeous buttons.
Neutral fabrics for dying.
Francis Pickering's new book, some stencils and some tools for carving stamps (these are not in the picture, they are already in use!!)
This little bit of fabric was a bit of a splurge, I couldn't resist it, it is hand dyed and just so rich in colour, I love it!
Loved these buttons, I got them from an Australian company who travel over every year for this show!!! They were such nice people, could have chatted with them for ages.
Just waiting for my parents to arrive so I must fly, have a great weekend.
