I was really hoping that February's block would have either cats, bunnies or frogs...
What a handsome frog prince!
I loved stitching this block :D
This is a picture of the whole sampler so far, so we can see that it's going to be a nice size ^^
Holy crumpled fabric batman!
The craft show on Friday was a great success! Much better than it has ever been before :) We got there safe by thinking we had got horribly lost...if we had gone the way we thought we should have gone... who knows where we would've ended up D:
In the end, I was quite restrained ^^
I got some lace, ric-rac and buttons as they are always useful to have around. I got a kit from The Nutmeg Company to make a beautiful box. The lady's work on this stand was just beautiful *__* Then I found another awesome lady who had a stand full of charts from Blackbird Designs, Prairie Schooler, Lizzie Kate etc. I was very good and only bought two, both from Blackbird Designs. 'Midnight Watch' has been on my wishlist on Sew & So for a while so I decided to pick that up, and 'Wild Berries' was shown on the back of the chart for 'Bluebird of Happiness' - I loved it straight away but I had been having trouble finding it from a UK seller so no way was I leaving without it! The knitting chart was actually from Black Sheep (shop not stand) as we went there for lunch on the way home - they had it knitted up in red and I just had to have it ^^;
I was very tempted to get a magnifying lamp as I'm still scared about 40 count fabric. The magnifier I have at the moment is one of those one's that hangs around your neck...and I hate it D: I get really wound up when I use it *lol* So I would like a free-standing one. The one's on display at the show were really good..but I like to research these things a little as they can be quite pricey. So today I will be studying up on magnifying lamps! Does anybody use a magnifying lamp? Any tips on what I should look out for, or any recommendations? ^^
