Oh God, I hope my bank manager isn’t reading this. Me and my flexible friend had some fun today at the Festival of Quilts. Well, it’s once a year and I don’t spend cash on clothes do I? Another reason for frequenting charity shops I say. Anyway, back to the booty. What did I get?
A collection of books. Mainly from the slightly mad ladies at Quiltmania. A copy of their Simply Vintage über mag and a long lusted over copy of Yoko Saito’s Houses Houses Houses. This book is the bomb. I will do a full post on it soon because it is just fabulous. The final book is Stitch with Love by Mandy Shaw. And she signed it for me!
Can you spot a colour theme here? I hadn’t realised until I took these picturs. They blue me away, groan. Anyway we have….
Some hand printed peacocks from Hungary
Some decoupatch stuff – glue, big heart box, paper and brush £10, bargain!
Some felting stuff from the wonderful Oliver Twist – roving, thread, needles, mat and felt
Hmmmm. Quite a lot. Oh dear. Well, it coud have been so much more. I had a blast. I’ll post some more tomorrow about some of the exhibits and cool stands. But now, I’m wacked so it’s a glass of wine and some sleep for me. I hope you’ve enjoyed this trek thru the Festival as much as I have. Take care xx
