wrapped up

I had such a great time at the Stitches and Craft show recently! Liesl (aka Hoppo Bumpo) was lovely company and not (as others may have thought) a blue hippo at all. Her Shower Cap kits were such a hit, that you can now buy them from her brand new online shop! My neighbour at the show was once again the talented and oh so friendly Michelle whose beautiful crocheted necklaces tempted me once again!

It's wonderful to be surrounded by so much creative talent and I've been inspired to try a few new crafts. None have yet been successful enough to show off but hopefully with practice I will have a granny square or a scarf to show off in the near future. I have a yearning for the banshee's wool but first have to learn how to put it to good use!

Given that I haven't managed to pull a blog post together since the show I was most impressed to see Andi's ottoman creation all made from fabric bought from the show. Pippijoe fabric has been mixed with ink and spindle, kristen doran and yardage design. I love love love it and am looking at my old brown ottoman in a new light...
