Wednesday evening I went to Aquafit with a friend. Elsa was supposed to come along too, it was all her idea after all, but was knocked a bit sideways by a cold bug. Sensibly she stayed at home and just about managed to shake it of in pretty quick time.
Lucky really as yesterday we drove down to Westpoint, Exeter for the Creative Stitches and Hobbycraft show. We'd never been before and we were very impressed. It wasn't overly huge but there was plenty to see and we had just about finished all the stalls at the right time. Neither of us came away thinking we had missed anything which is always a nice thought! We didn't over spend, there were lots of crafting stalls and not too many fabric ones, but were more than pleased with the purchases we did make.
Not really a place for taking photos but I did manage to have a sneaky of this fabulous little number by Maggi which she blogged about here but has since moved to To Dream To Stitch so she can sell all her gorgeous hand dyed fabric and threads. Maggi and I did the C&G in parallel and we managed to lean on each other once or twice! It was truly wonderful to see this piece for real and if you are going to any of the other shows she lists I would highly recommend looking for it!
And finally I've have a little clear out of excess magazines, most have gone to my ladies as they a stitching ones, but these two are on offer to whomever would like them. They are issue 3 and 4 of the new Fibre Art Now. If only one person wants then, you can have both, if two of you want them I will send one each. Just leave a message here and the first who asks for them can have them. I will have a look on Wednesday and post on Thursday 4th.
