Hello! I hope you all had a nice weekend.... I had a very busy weekend which was a lot of fun! Firstly, my children all returned home from university for their Easter holidays and, it was so nice to see them again.... the terms can seem very long sometimes! My sister also came to stay, so we had a full house!
On Sunday, my sister and I went to see the Stitching, Sewing and Hobbycraft show at the ExCel in London. We had a bit of a crazy start to the day, partly due our train being delayed and various parts of the underground being shut for repair work and, partly due to our inability to read the underground map correctly! However, once we eventually got to the show we had a great time!
There was a wonderful display of quilts by the Quilters' Guild. I picked up a leaflet all about the Guild next to the display as I am interested to find out more about them.
There were lots of craft booths to browse round and, a visit to a lovely show like this wouldn't be complete without a few purchases.I found some lovely silk ribbons to buy which will be great to try out my newly learned silk ribbon embroidery.
I also picked up some colourful felt and a great little new gadget called the 'multipom' which allows you to make lots of pom poms at the same time. I can't wait to try it out! All in all a fun day out!
