Yay, it was that time of the year again. Me and Tracy love our sewing exhibitions at the NEC..it’s local to us and a great day out.
We went to Yarnia…I’ve usually got some knitting on the go but goodness me – EVERYTHING you could see was knitted!
I also love period dramas and each year they have a costume display. Last year it was Mr Selfridge and this year was Far from the madding crowd.
When I see costumes from films and TV shows it always amazes me how tiny all the women are. Part of the job I suppose.
Of course a big part of the day for us (and everyone else) is buying fabric.
Black crepe for a blouse and some black lace for the shoulders, strawberry thief Liberty and the orange and white which hangs lovely.
The same orange and white for me, some Liberty for a dress, a fat quarter for my new quilting course which starts next month and a lovely park scene for Tash (even when she doesn’t go with me she ends up with fabric..daughters!)
Already looking forward to the next one!
Happy sewng – Carol x
