Well I'm gonna come running in at the very end of the month and skid to a flustered halt to present my March 2012 monthly make. This is pretty much the only thing I have completed this month, my Christmas Quilt Stitchery.
I obviously have to turn it into a quilt at some stage but that will be sometime towards the end of the year.
Following my visit to Sewing for pleasure last week at the NEC I attended Pins and Needles today with my friend Nic. This year it was held at the Newcastle Racecourse which was a much better venue than the aircraft hanger style arena where it usually is.
(I did take some nice photos of the venue and the knitted underwater display which was amazing, I will blog these another time as this post is rather photo heavy already.)
We had fun and I stocked up on some gorgeous fabrics, this little lot were from Just Quilting
This little (*cough*) pile was from Images of Egypt
and here is an array of other bits and bobs, including some quilting gloves, buttons, threads, patterns and hoops.
Check out my giant button, I love it, bought from Button's Boutique.
This is my favourite buy of the day, it's a cross stitch pattern in the shape of a sewing machine. I did see this at Birmingham and hummed and harred, but I snapped it up today. I'm thinking of sewing it in various shades of dusky pinks and greys but I've not decided yet.
Well all shopped out I came home to a lovely parcel from Emma Bear Forever in the form of these two lovely grey squares. Thanks again Emma.
Next weekend will be my two year blogiversary, and so I am planning a little giveaway, stay tuned!
