My Day at the - Spring Knitting and Stitching Show

Well what a wonderful day I had.


I've been to the Spring craft show at Kensington Olympia for the last few years and generally leave with mixed feelings. Not sure if it was the place I am now with my crafting and this blog or the fact that I was there with a very good friend or what it was, but, I had a thoroughly wonderful time there on Thursday.


I attended 2 workshops

1. Free Hand Machine embroidery - always been too scared to give this a go. I love it, totally hooked although I obviously need a lot more practice

2. Hexagon patchwork - using a paper piecing technique I haven't tried since school


I purchased fabric, kits and a new sewing machine so more to come on these soon. Machine arrives this week - excited :)




  1. Glad you had a good day at the show; look forward to seeing a patchwork quilt top/cushion/coaster here soon... And I like your ripple blanket.

  2. I hope you enjoy stitching up your kit! .... if you can drag your self away from your new sewing machine! - How exciting!

  3. I think you did a great job for a first time. Free-hand machine embroidery is very difficult to do. I look forward to seeing some work using your new machine.


Thanks for stopping by.
I really do appreciate every comment so would be grateful if you let me know your thoughts.
