I'm still here!

Just not had much time to blog (or craft) with it being the school holidays. The little crafting time I do have is spent preparing for the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival, the theme is recycled crafts, so I'm using up my stash of felted jumpers (sweaters). I'll post some pictures soon. In the meantime, here's a little squirrel - I've been experimenting with needle felting and ended up with this little chap, not sure what to do with him though, at the moment he just sits and watches over me in my studio.


On Friday I went to the Festival of Quilts at the N.E.C. It was my first time, the quilts were fantastic, I took a lot of photographs, but as I don't know who made the quilts I'm a bit reluctant about posting them on here. There was also a lot of stalls!! I had no intention of buying any fabric, as I have quite a collection at home, but I'm afraid I couldn't resist :)

I clicked my way thru several blogs this afternoon and when I saw Chapel Allerton at the top of yours, I said...I know where that is! Plus you are teaching in my old home town, Knaresborough!! While I don't knit or felt or crochet, I felt like I'd 'gone home.'
