As a follow on from my last post, I also got to indulge in some of my favourite forms of retail therapy on Thursday. Before we went to the Quilt Museum I had a quick browse in a couple of second hand bookshops and found these
The Quilt Museum has got a lovely shop and I bought a kit to make some 'Kaths Kubes' for the children with this lovely vintage style fabric.
In the evening I got to really indulge. As Dave was on holiday I was able to make it over to Baa Ram Ewe for their New Season Preview. The special guest this time was Susan Crawford and she talked us through the gorgeous designs in her new book 'A Stitch in Time 2' along with allowing us to try on her samples.
Of course I couldn't leave without shopping! Rosie had made a special request for me to knit her some green socks, so that yarn was top of the shopping list, I got some Alpaca Sock yarn in Moss from UK Alpaca. There was also some Merino Blend DK from King Cole to knit a top for Christopher and the indulgence of a skein of hand dyed Bluefaced Leicester Silk Lace for myself along with an Amy Butler skirt pattern.
