Well I went to the Knitting and Stitching Show with a mate of mine from work yesterday. We split up as soon as we arrived, her thing would be sewing but not patchwork sewing as such and we agreed to meet up after a while. Oh and hubby and the boys parked themselves in the coffee shop.
I was on a mission for supplies i.e replacement rotary blades, new cutting mat, threads, quilting pins and so on.
I am very proud to say I pretty much stuck to the list (a few things though they just didn't have so I will have to order off the web) and I only purchased a couple of fabrics. You should have seen me last year, oh my goodness I left loaded with fabric but since then I have gotten very used to shopping online and I love going through Etsy and seeing what supplies I can find.

Anyway I also picked up some quilting needles which are very very long and have a bit of flexibility to them so looking forward to using them on my new order.
You know and I am sure you feel the same I just love looking at fabrics, the colours are simply amazing. I had to be very strict with myself, 'cause I have a cupboard full of fabric and more coming in for my order and you are walking past stalls with fabrics calling out to you! Buy me!! I can only imagine what the US craft fairs are like.
I found a lovely lady from Wexford who gives lessons so will be in touch with her for paper piecing etc and her fabrics were AMAZING!!! Hmm I feel a weekend in Wexford coming on!
ps: going to soak neck in bath still not right argghhhh! Any tips welcome!
