As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Stash shopping at the NEC

Hey folks, 

Just a quick post about my day out at the Stitching and hobbycrafts show at the NEC yesterday. I went with my friends Clare and Ria. 

We saw some amazing cakes...

Saw costume displays from the film The Kings Speech

And a promotional piece from Game of Thrones. 

And brought STASH...

Paper bags for DD's birthday and jewellery elastic. Lots of buttons, various pieces of fabric (including a grab bag of evenweave and linen offcuts) and threads. 

Buttons and beads. 

Liberty fabric for my quilt, felt and threads.

And a bent creek pattern. I seem to have a thing for alphabet patterns at the moment. 

I had a fab day. Best I start saving for November! 

See you Tuesday for Theme-Tas-Stitch. 


  1. I love going to craft shows but there is only one in my region, always in May. And like you I never come back home without some new stash. You seem to have had a great time.

  2. Great stash!!! I too went on Saturday & bought a lot of new things... would have been lovely to meet you ;)

  3. Oh what amazing things, great stash buying

  4. Those cakes are amazing! Was there much cross stitch there? I haven't been to a show since before the boys were born. I went to Olympia a couple of times, it was awesome back then!

  5. Lovely stash and those cakes are certainly amazing!

  6. I was there too on Saturday! It was good for stitchers I thought, but it didn't seem very busy so bad for the retailers.

  7. Wow those cakes! Your new stash looks lovely and I specially like the buttons with crafty sayings.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. :-)
