Don't you just want to dive in to this little heap of goodies??!
I had a day to myself yesterday...completely free to do as I pleased, linger as long as I cared, and shop to my heart's content. How great is that?
I went along to Birmingham, for the Knitting and Stitching Show at the NEC. It was amazing! Smaller than the Festival of Quilts, I believe, but definitely worth the trip. There were some fabulous works of textile art to muse over, and plenty of bookstalls to indulge that passion of mine...and of course, many many wondrous things available that I simply couldn't go home without!
The day also meant that I could meet Michala from Kaylacoo for the first time - which was wonderful. A gorgeous lady, with impeccable brooch sense! It was terrific to chat with her and her Guild friends about textiles, and whilst doing so, we also met up with Gina - ooh, the things I get up to when I'm allowed out on my own...!
