ally pally

Well, this weekend it was that time of year again - stitching and knitting at ally pally, and it was lovely to be living practically on the doorstep this year. However, it did lead to me buying silly amounts of coned yarn and some lovely coloured leather knowing it wasn't far to lug it home....dangerous! I also purchased a wonderful bernina sewing machine from the lovely Malcolm at Sewfine, something I have been after for ages...will post some pictures of the lovely toys I intend to make on it soon. I also want to make some bags from the leather....if I ever get round to it.....anybody else impulse buy this weekend?!!

i went on thursday morning, as soon as it opened with some of my students, to try to beat the rush - didn't quite work! nail files? wish i had seen those, am sitting here with a rough nail patch snagging on my knitting hmmph! will have to arrange to meet next time there is a yarn fair....
and talking of habu, Charlotte, i always try my hardest to skip past their stall, as i tend to buy their yarns just to look at and stroke - most unproductive!!
