Stitching Show NEC, Birmingham

Last week I was on holiday, it was a very busy week but I did manage to fit in a trip to a stitching show at the Nec, the picture shows Sue Hawkins who is a talented designer on her stand, I have been fortunate to do many of her workshops and I have been on stitching orientated holidays with her and Jane Greenoff from The Cross Stitch Guild, I did of course buy some 
of Canvas Work kits as I love her canvas work but have not got a photo of the stash I bought. I also bought some delica beads from The Bead Merchant for a Workshop I am doing in September with Diane Fitzgerald who is an American Teacher who is coming over here to teach some workshops.
I finished Three French Hens for the Christmas Challenge 2009 blog and I have stitched together last months Two Turtle Doves these are from Just Nans 12 Days of Christmas.

It must have been great at the Stitching Show. I love craft shows but have rarely the chance to attend one.
Two great ornament finishes!
