Yesterday, myself and a few friends, set off for Dublin to the Knitting and Stitching Show.
We had a great day and enjoyed ourselves. I also made a few purchases during the day, not too many because I am exercising restraint as I have so many fabrics and lovely craft items already!!!
I must say that one of my favourite purchases was these fabrics from Oakshott Fabrics, these are like nothing I have ever seen, or bought before, they are amazing. I have tried to show the colours, but the colours are so much nicer in person and they also have a slightly two tone or sheen effect to them.
If you are a fan of solids then you will love these and even if you dont I think you will still love them.
I bought this selection to make this pattern, I forgot my camera or I would have shown you the Oakshott stall, it was stunning.
This pattern is very different to what I normally do (and I am a little nervous about attempting it), but I couldn't resist and once I get a few projects out of the way I am going to have a go.
I also bought some gorgeous stretchy mini ruffle trim, so cute
A fabric Christmas card to make.
I also took a little mini workshop on one of the stalls and tried something new, to me, with embroidery - and I loved it I think I see myself doing more of this in the future.
This was the first time I have been to the show in Dublin and I really enjoyed it. It was a long day starting around 6am and then home again after 8pm (we went on an organised coach and ticket package organised by The Wool Shop - thank you to them it was great).
These are the links (I forgot to put them in earlier - sorry).
I think I am going to start saving for next year!
