... please excuse my singing, got to have a little giggle on April Fools Day!!
It seems ages since I blogged - :-(, things have slowed down here and really they cant afford to!! I've got lots of cards that need making - I havent made one easter card yet. I also havent done my March christmas cross-stitch AND I've missed the March Monthly make!! The house is a tip and ... oh I could go on but you dont want me whinging on!!
I have been on a stash ban lately and saving up as I had tickets for the Pins & Needles show at Newcastle yesterday. My lovely hubby took me there and secretly I think he likes going to these fairs I give him an idea of what I am after and he's quite a good spotter plus he can remember prices and which stall they were on - result!!
Here is a pic of my haul, luckily Lisa had left some things for me to buy - lol.
I bought some fat quarters (not sure what to do with them but they were pretty!!), some 28ct Linen ( a metre at half price - which I thought was quite good),ribbons, couple of cross stich patterns a Lizzie Kate Easter one erm which will probably be stitched for next year the way I am going at the moment!!, my first Bent Creek cross stitch pattern - yay!! Gnomes in a Garden Row - too cute and finally some card making bits and pieces from Samuel Taylor - Basic Grey papers, pearls and a new die - phew!! I think my budget (plus a tiny bit more - cough) was spent in about an hour and a half - it doesnt take long does it??
To be honest I think I prefer this fair to Harrogate - obviously not as much card making stuff - and the every crafts a £1 wasnt there this year :-( but its definately not as manic at least you can get in to see stuff. On show was a knitted tent and a quilted yurt - but guess who forgot her camera - doh.
We are off to Alton Towers in the middle of the week as a treat for Jacks Birthday so I am hoping the weather stays nice, right best go and get showered and dressed to head of to Asda - as our cupboards are bare!!!
Hope the weather is nice where you are - enjoy!!
