So who else has been down to Londons Alexandra Palace
for the "Knitting and Stitching show?"
My friend and I went on a coach trip
yesterday and had a fantastic time.
Both of us were broke when we left
with all the bits and pieces we bought
but I have to say for me the best part
was the fabulous exhibitions by the textile graduates
Here are some of my photos.
I went to have a word with long time bloggy
friend Sue from @home who had a stall selling her
badges and pocket mirrors. It was lovely to
meet her after chatting on line and sharing each others lives
for so long. It was a very quick chat as
thankfully for her she was very busy.
Hope it carried on in the same vain honey and it was worth
all the hard work. Can't wait to read her post about the hotel
which apparently left a lot to be desired.
This was one of my favourites booths
and came away with one of their books.
I'm totally inspired to do more embroidery and really wish
I could have afforded to buy one of their pieces.
There was artist from all over the world
Sorry about the glare on this one but I love the picture
which was so different from the ones above.
Then as we left I saw this which has been knitted
by a whole host of people based on the characters from
a new childrens book due out called"Save snarky spuddle and ramfeezled",
unfortunately for them they were parked outside
and not allowed a gazebo.
It was pouring when
we left and I felt so sorry for them.
We hit dreadful traffic on the way home so it was
a very long day but very enjoyable.
I haven't taken a photo of the things I got so will do that this week
so see you soon and let me know what you thought of the show if you went.
