And the scissors you can use on a plane - not that I have any intention of taking embroidery on a plane.
But I didn't buy any fabric or yarn even though there was some wonderful stuff there.
I did meet some people I haven't seen for a while while I wandered around. That was an unexpected bonus.
Then I decided that I really should go and see the quilt exhibition. There were some I had seen at the AQC earlier in the year but there were also quite a lot of new ones, all wonderful. I got inspired to investigate doing more quilting and maybe joining a group. I'll have to see when they meet and suchlike. Maybe I will use those tools I couldn't resist. Some people are really good demonstrators!
As I was wandering (and getting rather sore feet) I came across a very interesting quilt - I was taken with the way the diamonds were made, the fact that it had see-through parts ( a particular love of mine) and that it had been joined in an interesting way.
|The colours are not right as I used my phone.|
Then I looked at who had made it and saw that it was Deb Layt - again!
I wandered away but decided that I really did need a photo of the complete quilt and lo and behold! there was a blue ribbon on it. I had heard someone speaking and lots of clapping but hadn't realised that winners were being announced.
I couldn't get a shot of Deb with her quilt, she was busy being a quilt angel elsewhere.
