The Knitting and Stitching Show 2010


On Saturday, my friend Hannah and I traveled down to London to attend The Knitting and Stitching Show 2010 at Alexandra Palace. Due to disruptions on the tube, it took us a short-lived tube ride, 4 buses and 2hrs to get there from King's Cross...which was exhausting! However, the effort paid off as I scored some gorgeous fat quarters which are just destined to become cute clutch bags:
On a slightly separate yet related subject, I've been going overboard on the pattern front again. I REALLY need to stop buying news ones, but I just can't seem to resist them. I think that if I didn't sew I'd probably still collect them and fill myself with nostalgia for times that I never even experienced. Anyway, here's what I've been spending money on lately:

  3. Sigh. Serious jealousy of both fabrics and patterns.
    I'm a bit scared of the toddlers with beehives though - they look like shrunken women...
