Stitch & Craft - my new stash!

Evening all, I'm so pleased to have some comments, I often wonder if it's just me out there in the internet-world and my mind makes up the responses on forums etc!

Talking of forums... in response to some feedback over on MSE I have changed my font to calibri (my favourite word-font) and the colour to a lovely dark pink. I hope this helps people read my ramblings better!

So today was my trip to Stitch and Craft at Olympia in London, it was an awesome day if a little tiring. I think we were possibly the youngest there and had a ball talking to more experienced crafters and stitchers, I learnt a lot from everyone I spoke to.

I know you're all wondering what I bought and of course you need to see it so here it goes...

Firstly... everything I bought crammed into these two bags - pretty darned small and dull!

It all expanded into this...
You'll see some new nesties, storage, a new heat gun, loads of embossing plates and a QVC teddy from Dawn Bibbys Birthday party (which incidentally was the first I knew of Dawn and of how popular QVC is!).

Of course I didn't stop there as I have a craft room to start, finish and fill! I found the most amazing sales lady who 'forced me' to buy this little glue bottle with an injection type nib to write with.

I also needed a new injection of papers and so I got these, look out for them in cards coming soon! (they were a bargain at just £2.50 a pack - so the ones where I don't really like the style are a good bargain for backgrounds).


  1. wow how lovely all that yummy stash!

  2. Thank you! I stuck to my budget and had enough spare to eat at Pizza Express :)

    I'm very excited about a crafting day tomorrow - I need to change my spare room into a crafting room! (It's currently the cats bedroom and he doesn't pay enough rent to deserve it).

  3. Wow fantastic buys. Hope you're having fun with it all. Love the glue bottle - I think I might need to put that onto my shopping list. Jaqui x
