With kid wrangler in tow (aka my lovely mum), Caleb, Jemima and I went along to the Stitches and Craft show. I had a little stash of cash and went along not knowing what to expect. I had checked out the website last night to come up with a plan of attack, but became immediately overwhelmed so decided to wing it.
I quite enjoyed it there, I have to say. Lots of cool supplies and handicrafts in the one spot. Which I suppose is the point! Not everything there was my cup of tea, but there is a lot of different crafty types in crafty land I guess! I didn't intend to do any of the craft labs and so on as I had the kids with me, so I was really there just to shop and have a look about.
Pictured is my little stash... (do you see that I really need to vacuum?). Not pictured is a paper punch that I couldn't wait to play with. The book I used is actually a fallen apart and incomplete "The Von Trapp Family on Wheels" (the sequel to "The Sound of Music" that I picked up a long time ago for about 20c from an oppy.
I confessed to 2 lovely bloggers that I follow their blogs, Nanette from Rummage and Lisa from The Red Thread, which was fun! Both very talented ladies. It was nice to have a little chat.
So much crafty stuff to go on with. What shall I do next? Vacuum? ...
