I have had a strange few weeks,with very mixed emotions, involving hospital tests, a family funeral, a visit to the Knitting and Stitching show and celebrating our 40th anniversary and in between all this doing lots of sleeping, I think I was a Bear in another life as I am in hibernation mode :)
I decided to stock up on the essentials before I went to Harrogate K&S as
The Stamp Man had 20% off and free postage over ten pounds,and they are always prompt in getting their orders out, no affiliation just a happy shopper, lovely Moonglow, glitz spritz and Starburst Stains. and a few other goodies.
Next I bought some Perfect Pearls on E-Bay from here great price and fast service, again no affiliation.
All that shopping before I went meant I only bought a few things from Harrogate
Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn's new books which I must admit I didn't even look inside I just know I have to have them.
Paper and Metal Leaf Lamination by Claire Benn, Leslie Morgan and Jane Dunnewold
and Get Plastered by Maggie Smith
a few more books that were on my list were not quite what I expected so they got crossed off , but several more have been added to the Wish list to replace them :)
The day before I went to K&S I ran out of my Walnut Crystals and Golden Interference, so stopped by Art Van Go to buy some and added a metre of prefelt along with several postcards that was my lot.
I find myself quite overwhelmed at these shows lately, is it my age :)
I wander around like someone from the home for the bewildered
Loved the work of Jackie Langfield in the Graduate Showcase, she hasn't got a website yet but look out for her work in the future.
loved the Art Cloth exhibition and always love Jan and Jeans work, Ruth Issetts colourful work just makes you smile walking among the banners, and I really liked Jean Drapers new work in collaboration with her partner.
so all in all a good day.
