A Stitcher's Paradise...




Yes that's where I have been today. It was the Needlecraft and Northern Quilt Show in Harrogate, and I had a wonderful day.There was so much to see , charts, kits, books , fabric. Everything for the stitcher and some of the quilts on display were marvellous. Really inspiring. As you can see from the goodies on the table I spent one or two pennies, but it was worth it.They'll keep me busy for a while, now I must finish two cat pics for my daughter so I can start some of my new kits. The 'horse' material is going to be a cushion cover for my daughter, I will quilt parts of it if she'll give me the time, lol!The fat quarters at the bottom are to start a quilt for my youngest daughter, this will be quite a challenge but I'm going to try. There are charts(LHN needlebook), Sunbonnet Sue designs(which I love!), a kit -Rowandean(a picture in a picture, KWIM) and a patchwork pincushion. So lots of different styles to keep me busy through the Winter. A great day,all in all and guess what no rain, it started just as we left!
