I managed to finish the little wall hanging from the Cyber Stitching kit this morning. It will be going as a house-warming present to my sister-in-law, but I like it so much I will probably make another for myself at some time. I wonder if I can fashion a little quilt hanger from a wire coat hanger? I was looking at some online and the cost is horrific.
This afternoon I went to a quilt show at Sandown Racecourse. It was touch and go whether I would make it as I have been feeling so tired and yuk over the last few days. I was determined to go though, so I did. I thought I was going to have to leave as soon as I got there though! It was very crowded, with lots of stands and I felt a bit confused and groggy. But I kept strolling around until I got the feel of the place, and then felt a bit better. There was a quilt exhibition with quilts in several different categories. Some were brilliant, some were just too perfect to be called quilts, some were great fun. I took a few photographs of the ones which grabbed my attention.
I made a few purchases, but mostly boring stuff, like thread, calico, refills for my chalk marker. I did get a length of purple fabric to back my Strawberry Crush + One quilts - garish, but cheap. I also bought a wall hanging pattern and the Happy Villages book by Karen Eckmeier. If you haven't seen these have a look at Tanya's blog, they are great fun and I've been tempted for ages.
