I like to go to craft shows, my 1st show of the year is generally in August with festival of quilts ending with knitting and stitching in November usually by then I have gone too 5 shows, but this year I have already attended a quilt show at the Yorkshire show ground then I have seen an advert for a Wool Festival taking place in Leeds at the Grammer School in April which I intend to visit.
This is the Quilting Antics stand where I bought a pattern and the wool tweed for it, and I found the lining fabric on another stand.
There was a quilt exhibition as well, loved the above but hate stitching curves.
Fantastic machine embroidery on this quilt.
The colours caught my eye, this quilt was layered up then areas cut back very effective.
Up close not much to look at but from a distance was brilliant unbelievable made up from squares.
Here is the stash I bought.
I also received this through the post this week, but wasn't happy with the postman, he has been putting packages through our gate but didn't leave a message with the post I found it after it had been raining so the outer package was wet, fortunately the contents were dry.
This was the eagerly awaited little box of crochet with the Attic 24 pattern, I follow Lucy's blog and received the wool for my birthday for her recent Moorland blanket Cal which I intend to do over the summer while at the caravan as it doesn't involve YouTube as our internet assess isn't brilliant.
