Hi everyone, catching up now on my blog and sharing my happiness is a great feeling.
The above photo is one of my favourites it was the Nostalgia stall
they deal in various types of beads, wires etc pop along and have a look.
The photo above are the 2 friends that came with me to the NEC, on the left is Jackie, Jackie has a wealth of knowledge all to do with crafts and is a brill helper and Jenny is on the right. Jenny is also a guider and gets ideas from us all to help the Guides, Jenny is also a member to the Embroiders Guild and is just starting to learn how to bead, I am teaching the craft group I go to.
The above photo is on a stall at the NEC that took my eye, it was full of handy bags and containers to keep beads, cross stitch, tools etc, it was the spotted one I liked. The whole day was fantastic, and fun, even though we got caught up in traffic coming back. We did not spend to much money!!!! which I must say makes a change. The next big event I am hoping to visit is actually here in Lincoln this July, we are going to have a craft fair on the showground, after that it shall be a trip to Harrogate, this time we are thinking of hiring a mini bus to go in instead of loads of cars.
