|All hooking away nicely|
She did look like she was paying attention and concentrating so we left her to finish and did a bit of a 'recci' of the aisle's of yarn. After going to a few quilt shows with fabric everywhere it is such a change to see wonderful hanks of yarn, so many different types and the colour's are just eye popping.
I also tried to take a couple of photos of the Mandala's and may have got (lucky) a shot of some of the ones that our crochet group sent. There were so many, and the camera does not do them justice.
|These were pinned all across the Auction Mart Sheds|
|Think some of these are from our little group|
You may recognise the next photos from here......Yes we went to Attic 24's corner and
|There were more bikes around the town|
|Double bed size|
|It is just oh so neat! Can you see the variegated thread?|
We all wandered shopped, wandered and shopped again until we were "yarned" out. As L hadn't been to this part of the world before, S took us into Skipton to show us the sights.......not really.....but she did take us to the studio where Lucy from Attic 24 hangs out with the talented and very friendly Tracy.
Tracy shares the studio with Lucy and had decided to have an open weekend, so there were lots of ladies (sometimes in single file) wandering around. Tracy is such a talented lady, making friendly mice, rabbits, and sometimes the odd fox, you should visit her facebook page.
|I wanted them all|
I had bought a few projects at the show, but first I have to make a couple of hats for the 'littlies' living in South Africa, so after getting a few tips from the ladies at yarndale I managed to finish one hat, but now need to add the detail. Then I can start playing with my new yarns. I will show you more of the hat as it develops
|base done, now to turn it into a bear!!!!|
My "buys" from the show....Watch this space to see what comes next....
On Sunday S and I had a trip to some big stores a few towns away, but Monday when everyone had left for school or work Mr. D and I went into Skipton to wander along the canal. When we started it looked like a typical autumn day,.....
|First thing...bit misty|
but by the time we were ready to turn around the sun had burnt the mist away and it was absolutely gorgeous.
We had some lunch in town then returned to sit in the garden lapping up what might be the last of the warm sunshine of this year. What a great weekend it's been!!
