inspired

I should be making the little present for my friends daughter that I'm half way through, but instead I will give you a little peek at some of the things I got up to last week...


The Knitting and Stitching Show was packed, with a whole lot of creative and inspiring stuff.



Stitched chairs and lamps seem to be a new trend, there were a few about, which I loved - these were on the Rowan stand, (free patterns for the cushions are on their website) I quite fancy a knitted telephone.


And paper, something i can't resist.

 
These huge delicate hangings made up of torn panels were enchanting. By artist Chiaki Morita.


And books, coming to life....


And of course, the dress, at the party - I somehow spent most of my time in the children's tent - fancy that....



Best get back to making that present. x
