Had a lovely day out at a Craft Show. Met a few stitching/crafting buddies for lunch and at the end but most of the time we went our separate ways.
One of my favourite stands was a new cross stitch designer Itching to Stitch who had some lovely charts and kits, many of which could be personalised. I loved that the kits came with linen and overdyed threads and I couldn't resist this gorgeous needlecase design.
I would love to stitch this for myself and for friends. Just need to locate those missing hours in the day. "Eight Days a Week" always was one of my favourite Beatles songs and it's definitely what I need.
This Christmas Carol sampler also leapt into my hand - isn't it wonderful the way it can be personalised
Sew Enchanting from Devon always tempts me with their delightful range of fabrics and patterns for quilts and stitchery. Lynette Anderson has a new range of fabric which I love called Pocketful of Daisies
Another stall selling Lynette Anderson goodies was Patchwork Chicks. They had a wonderful advent stockings design which had sold out almost immediately.
I bought this pattern for a cushion
Also the pattern and the purse for this fabulous design
and this pattern with initials which I think will be very useful for small stitchy gifts
I am still in the process of going through and drooling over the goodies I bought so I will be updating this post later.
