As well as the shopping mentioned in the earlier post, I had plenty of time to stop and talk to all sorts of interesting people. From chatting in the queue for coffee with the guys at Kismet Creations to admiring Jane Davies dolls.
I've always had a soft spot for any form of ethnic/folk embroidery so these really caught my eye.
When bloggers get together, they shop!! I was delighted to meet up with Maggie (identified by that marvelous black and white bag) who blogs as Stitching with Schnauzer and Siamese As you can see, Maggie is holding some packets of the wonderful mother of pearl buttons that were for sale at a bargain price. ( I so much hate having my photo taken!!!)
This little lady came from Rarelizzie who was demonstrating friendly plastic in the hobbycraft hall, I have know Liz for several years although our paths have not crossed recently so it was great to catch up on the gossip and see her new techniques especially the one she calls ooze which I am sue will turn up on her blog or website very soon if its not already there.
