Fab Finds And New Toys!

I dodged the april showers today and went to the "Stitch and Creative Crafts" show at the Bath & West showground.

It wasn't as big as I was expecting, but there was a nice selection of fabric, ribbon and button sellers there, so I still had fun!

I had a fun morning, but I was a bit puzzled as to why there was a garlic-peeler stand, a hedge-pruner stand and a stall selling applie-pies ... at a stitch exhibition? Still, the apple-pie was yummy after tea!

Oooh drooly drool. Your haul of goodies from the show is scrummy. I love the polka dot fabric, and the ribbon. The sewing machine's not bad either (hehe).
I still can't sort out subscribing to your blog. Just have to keep checking in every couple of days to see what you're up to.
