Guess where I'm going on Friday? My dear, long suffering hubby is taking me to 'Make It' in Farnborough. Make It is a huge craft event, full name -
Make it Craft and Make it Homemade - the total Craft Event
Make It starts this Friday 24th Feb and continues until Sunday 26th Feb...
You can read more about it HERE.
For those of you who haven't been before, Make It is a kind of inspiration .... Oooo ahh... WOW.....inspiration and shopping event! If you want to try new crafts, or move on further with those you are already involved in...then you have to go....
Some of the crafts covered will be... card making, paper-crafting, beading, jewellery making, stamping, felting, decoupage, knitting and sewing...and there will be opportunities to buy equipment and materials for all of those... also cooking, demonstrations... oh my goodness, it will be a right old crafty inspiration-fest! Did I mention that there will be food there? I'm going to be making a bee-line for the Fin Taw Studio stall which is all about felting which I have always wanted to try...also Superlovely who specialise in 'Washi Tape'...(did you see Attic24's Washi Tape bunting here?)
Anyway...f you want to see the complete list of Exhibitors peak HERE, and if you want to know how to get to FIVE in Farnborough look HERE. It costs £9.50 on the day.
I'm only going as a visitor, not an exhibitor...but if you see a short chubby woman with a mass of unruly blonde
fuzz curls... say hello...it will probably be me! I'll have a tall, bald, bespectacled man with me who will be looking completely bored by the whole thing...bless!
Do you remember that I blogged about this beautiful blanket by Debbie at Serendipity Patch...
Well Debbie from sent me a square for our blanket... a few days later Debbie wrote me an email asking if her square had arrived yet..
It hadn't, so Debbie sent me another one.. and then, just the next day...
....the first one arrived!
So here they are... two beautifully made crochet squares using Wendy
Supreme 100% cotton DK yarn in 3 colours.. a baby pink, lemon and lilac..
The pattern is from '200 Crochet Blocks' by Jan Eaton... It is # 16 - 'Waterlilly'
These are gorgeous Debbie... Thank you for joining in...you now have TWO chances to win the whole blanket....
