Craft Fair

Grace and I went on a spending spree this morning at the Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts Fair at Aintree Racecourse.

We both bought mountains of yarn, as well as ribbons, embellishments and paper craft supplies.  (I can't show you everything - it had to be smuggled into the house and carefully concealed!!!)

I bought these lovely little gadgets for making pom-poms.


Pom-poms can be made in next to no time - so quick and easy.  I made these three as soon as I got home - just to give it a try.

The fair also had a display of costumes from the television programme Downton Abbey.








This next one was my favourite - I love the colour and the lace work.




A most successful day - our purses are considerably lighter - but we can't wait to get started on the new stash.

  2. I'm really enjoying watching Downton Abbey, I have 4 episodes (I think) of season two left. The detail on their dresses is amazing!

  5. I bought some pompom makers like yours in a welsh woollen mill last year. They are really quick to use, and the kids at my craft club really loved them, as in an hour loads of kids could make a pompom.
