As promised, here's a little update with the new stash that I bought at the Creative Stitches show a couple of weeks back. I'm pleased with myself that I didn't go too mad (frankly, I've got more than enough stuff as it is), but I did manage to pick up these few things:
Random offcuts of fabric - A pack of greys and blacks in a good variety of counts, and a pack of neutrals and browns, again some tiny but mostly large varied count pieces. At £4 each, I grabbed them!
A selection of cards from The Nutmeg Company. I can't describe how much I love these cards. Whichever show I go to, I always seek them out and make sure I pick up something from them because they are so different and people always love the cards I have made from this range.
Something a bit different for me - these are cards made with different pieces of fabric, and stitched like quilted pieces. I spotted them as something which was a bit more unusual and thought I'd pick up a couple of simple looking ones and give it a try. They also had a wide range of books on the subject for people who wanted to take things further. I've not seen this sort of thing at shows before but I thought it looked beautifully effective. There's not huge amounts of info in the kits, but these were designed by Sally Holman, Priory Farm.
And that was it really! I did also do a workshop with the Royal School of Needlework, but that piece isn't yet finished so I will save it for another time.
