Bits and pieces

Hubby surprised me yesterday by offering to take me to the Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts show at the SECC Glasgow. We went to the one in Birmingham last year which was a massive event and there was lots to tempt me, so was quite excited to go to Glasgow this year. It wasn't as big, I went with a list and only got one thing off it. However that didn't stop me buying some little bits and pieces.

I got a new pair of scissors, a thread cutter, some cord and buttons for my next project but must finish my current one before starting it.

And some more buttons ....just because I liked them!

I also got these charms the bees are for another future project.

There was a constant buzz in both halls and it was soo busy in the creative stitches hall you could hardly move. My girls and I really enjoyed looking at all the displays our favourite out of all them all  had to be The Giant Textile Books especially the dragon! Today is catching up with housework and fingers crossed maybe some stitching too.

Thank you Margaret for your kind words I've been reading others blogs for a number of years now and it's all a little strange to be writing my own! I have even managed a little stitching this week.
