The Eternal Maker

During my visit to the Knit & Stitch show, i came across this really amazing stall with the best range of fabrics i have ever seen. Here's a couple that i got...

The second fabric also has glitter on parts too. It is way too nice to use! But i do have plans to make a cushion cover out of the French Bulldog material:) I made sure i got their website for further purchases. They are a company based in Sussex shipping anywhere in the UK. Enjoy! The Eternal Maker

Knit & Stitch

Yesterday, i was lucky enough to go to the Knit & Stich how in Harrogate. There was lots of bargins to be had for craft supplies but also a really nice range of textile artists and university students selling some absolutely gorgeous pieces.

This Boat and all its contents were knitted, it looked amazing! I managed to pick up a few presents for myself, pictures up soon. To top it all of i learnt to crochet. It was an eventful day.

The Carpenters

I've been a fan of the carpenters for years now and today decided to watch a BBC documentary about the famous brother and sister duo. BBC music documentaries have always been well made and this one was no exception. The main thing though was that it reminded me of how sad Karen Carpenters death actually was and how beautiful and talented she was. She was an amazing dummer and bloody lovely!
