Well I have just about recovered from Festival of Quilts, I really think this show needs a few days to take it all in, going by coach allows about five hours galloping around, no pictures I am afraid as its not my work. but go and look HERE for the competition winners, I always come away totally overwhelmed,
A few things that caught my eye were Margaret West's, Indigo coat, I think it was Nunu felted and shibori dyed, just stunning, also a hanging by Jackie Smith, lots of little rectangles individually finished and stitched together, they are both in the list of winners in the link above.
Ferrets work was stunning as always, and so many more, I should have got the show guide as the names are not on the quilts.
My favourite exhibitors were Els Van Baarle and Dorothy Caldwell and Bente Vold Klausen
It was great to see the Kemshalls and Maggie Grey, I was very restrained in my purchases and only stocked up on diferent weights of Lutradur, Evelon and also bought some heavy weight pelmet vilene and cello foil
roll on September for Knitting and Stitching :)
This lovely card from Pat arrived in the post to cheer up a grey day, the lace trim is so delicate and the friend image is padded like a little pillow. It shall go n the mantelpiece for a while before it goes in my Calendar Girls album
