New Stash

Sunday, my friend Amanda & I decided we would go the the Sew & Stitch exhibition at Ally Pally. We had prebooked our train tickets and event ticket.  So due to engineering works to get there on time we needed to be on the 6.06am from Barnham, meant getting up at 4.00am.  Then when we arrived @ Victoria, tube engineering works so had to go to South Kensington to pick up Piccadilly line to Wood Green, the free bus to Ally Pally, so we actually just made the opening time @ 10.00am.  I have never been before and found it fabulous.  Managed to the main hall in relative peace, but by 12.00getting packed etc.    So the the picture working from left to right.

 1.Japanese indigo dyed fabric, plus a panel kit.
2. two pieces of lace , bought from the nice gents from Holland.
3. 5 skeins of Perle thread in autumnal colours
4. Undyed mulberry bark and some raw silk fibres
5. two quilting books
6. heap of silk fibres all types all colours
mixed in 2 knitted roses I made at the make and take.  They are the blue.
After seeing all the students work , which was awesome, we finally made our way home.  Finally got thru the door at 8.00pm.....after starting home at 3.45pm.  But it was worth it!!!!!


  1. Great new stash, looking forward what you will create.

  2. Sunday is a mare for travelling on trains, they tend to most of their repair work then.
    Sounds like an exhausting day but worth it. Love the look of your silk fibres, they'll make fabulous silk paper if that's what you intend them for. Lots of lovely new stash.

  3. What a fabulous haul... worth the struggle of trying to travel on a Sunday!
