I feel so out of sorts i could fall out with myself!
(Or pick an argument with my own finger nail, as my mum used to say)
I've been plagued with a recurring migraine this week and I'm not sleeping at all well. Waking every few hours, put that all together and throw hot flushes into the mix and you will understand
why i feel so blah.
Before i started to feel too blah, this past weekend was the Hobby Crafts show at the NEC in Birmingham, I had a lovely day wandering around by myself while DH was at home latexing the kitchen floor. (i've learned to keep out of the way when things like that are happening else i get dragged in to 'lend a hand' :-)
There was a display of some of the Downton Abbey costumes
Bet you recognise some of these
Aren't they gorgeous?
Plenty of stands to buy new stash :-)
Michael Powell stand
Not something i would personally stitch but i love the cars and VW's
Jane Greenoff stand
I did buy a Jane Greenoff kit and she served me her very self, lol
The stand below is always very popular, i bought from them last year, they sell a lot of American designs. Shame they done have an online store, although I think they do mail order.
Some lovely yarn stalls
These knitted bags really caught my eye, but at £93 for the large kit, a little expensive (although it is alpaca), so that's ok ;-)
Don't you just love that huge button?
And how about these needles, now they would get the job done pretty quick I think :-)
I don't know if you will be able to read the text, basically it's about a knitting census, what a great idea!
