It is indeed that time of year again... the air has gone a bit chilly, I'm stitching a pumpkin and it's the Knitting and Stitching show at Ally Pally next week. I wasn't going to go this year because last time I went I got a bit overexcited and bought waaaaaaay too much stuff.
However, I've decided that although I have a complete set of DMC to be going on with, and I have more than enough charts, what I need is more fabric to stitch on. Specifically, some black, some neutral (I want to start a sampler next year), a piece of pale blue to do Rocky Mountain Christmas (which doesn't even seem slightly daunting anymore now that I'm doing a HAED) on and whatever else strikes me on the day.
Of course, I'm also looking forward to seeing all the exhibition pieces - they were absolutely incredible last year.
I'm sure my husband won't mind a day of peace and quiet and the house to himself, but I'm sure he'll be bracing himself for my return and the stash I bring back with me!
Is anyone else popping along? If so, I hope you have as much fun as I do!
