Firstly here's the patterns ... I can never resist an Ella and Skysie stitchery and this one was HOT off the press, it came complete with little kitty buttons!! There's 'Mrs Perkins' from Melly and Me too (I'm ready when you are Lurline :o)!!!). The two in the middle are from Funky Friends Factory - they were simply too irresistable!!
Don't you just love these little Matroyshka prints ... I have no idea what I'm going to make from them but I just HAD to have them ... also bought some self cover buttons and a new pigma pen.I've been seeing so many clever knitters on the blogs that I decided I'd have a go and see if I'm not as completely hopeless as I think!!! I got me a pattern, a long twirly needle thingy and some yarn. Look Maria ... I'm going to knit some socks!!!!! The way I knit they could end up as anything LOL!!
Of course, I couldn't possibly leave the show without some fabric. I found these absolutely delicious linens ...... aren't they simply wonderful??!!? ...and these - these are my favourites!! I think I can see a bag emerging from this little lot ...The top two and the blue spotty one are all linens too. Those 50's style prints are just fabulous.
I've left these pics til last. I really enjoyed seeing all of these items. I've read so much about them over the months and to finally get to see them was a real treat. Most of you would recognise them straight away ....... these are the incredible selvedge projects from Jodie at Ric Rac. And let me tell you, they are even more impressive "in the flesh"!!
I also popped over to the Giggle Buttons stand to meet the gorgeous Sonya. It was so lovely to meet her, and I can't imagine why I didn't think to have our photo taken for my blog - my camera was in my bag ... I'm such a goose LOL!! Nevermind Sonya, I'll catch up with you at the October show and I'll make sure I do then!!!
