I love working in leather nowadays and am getting some really fab results using Husqvarna cut work needles in a free form Kathy way. I made this leather journal for my niece Sarah who just had her birthday. Prior to this I had made her mum a book and Sarah had asked for one for her school notes ad appointments. It only took me another year ha ha to squeeze her into my hectic schedule but we got there in the end and I was so pleased with the end result . I now have a yearning to make myself one in black green and cream as I have been hanging on to the most amazing piece of lime green leather for several years now and not knowing when or if I would use it. Now I know exactly what to do with it. I just need the time which isn’t happening at the moment with Alexandra Palace starring me in the face. Oh well watch this space you never know.
The first day of The Knitting and Stitching Show opened today and was packed all day. There seemed to be more people than last year or is it that I’m another year older and it just appears like that.
Quite a odd set up this year as I am directly across the aisle from Margaret Beal of Burning Issues and I think we were both a little uneasy as to how we would do trading so close to each other. Good news is that it doesn’t appear to be an issue and we both did well for our first day even if between us we managed to bung up the isle with interested customers.
Journey into the show from our hotel is terrible but thankfully it’s only once a year.
Tomorrow I want to go in early so I can look at all the yummy exhibitions and find out what’s new this year.
My new kits for the show are going down well with my little boxes and fan kits walking out fast. Dragonfly canvas is yet to get going and may need a push tomorrow . It’s a LOVELY kit.
