Yesterday I had a great day out at The Stitching, Sewing and Hobbycrafts show in Manchester. The venue is great for me and my daughter kept me company. We tried Decoupage,watched a fashion show and learned about the art of Zentangle. I enjoyed every stall and could have bought lots of stuff. I did buy one or two ( ok more!) new projects.
I bought some gorgeous wool fabric to make a Winter skirt (and ordered the pattern on line last night)
I found a lovely stall selling French style Shabby chic textiles. See http://www.naturaleigh.co.uk Here I purchased some fat squares to make a secret Christmas present.
I bought a lucky dip gift bag, which amongst lots of other stuff, contained a HUGE Lindt chocolate treat. Diet? What diet?
One of my favourite stalls was Rachel John-extreme textiles! who created using mega! massive knitting needles and very multiple ply wool.
I also bought buttons, trimmings, craft magazines (note the plural!) rubber stamping stuff and quite a few cups of tea!
We returned home poorer financially but happy and tired.
