That's all it seems like I did today at Ally Pally judging from the bags!
Here's my loot, which I'm sure you're all dying to see - they're now hidden away a bit so that Hubs doesn't need to worry about how much I spent - only my own money, the joint card stayed at home ;-)
Mollie Makes subscription (4 issues for £1!)
Gorgeous silk and merino wool for my bessie's birthday present - I can't knit so she's just getting the wool!
Various notions - new embroidery scissors and hoop, some "cute as a button" ribbon (which I think NEEDS to go on a new zippy pouch!) and other boring stuff like 505 spray and pins which aren't pretty enough to go in the pic
Essex Linen from the Eternal Maker in a nice Ivory colour for some cushions (10% off voucher too!)
and from the lovely ladies at Village Haberdashery, I got a charm pack of Sew Stitchy, other pretty print which I can't remember the name of, and the best of all - my first ever bit of Heather Ross!!!!
(and hello Kelly, it was lovely to be able to put a name to a face)
I went to two workshops, one making dresses for charity and another very challenging but extremely well run workshop with a lovely lady called Celia. We did darts, easing sleeves, understitching and bound buttonholes, all in an hour :O
I forgot to take pictures until the very end, and many of the stalls and displays explicitly asked you not to take photos. Here are two that I did manage to snap:
The Knitted Village - spot the Scouts!
and the stunning view from the top of the hill after we left:
