a crafty little shopping trip... March 22 2013

Yesterday I spent the afternoon having a mooch around the Hobby Craft 'sewing for pleasure' fair at the NEC.

There's a lot of stuff to see... some of it very samey and some of it very old skool.

If you’re into your crafty makes and you fancy stocking up on some supplies then this is the place to be.

Like many of these things, you need to sieve your way through the balls of wall and decoupage and find those little gems that are tucked away between the masses of 'seen it all before' stuff that's piled pretty high.

I came away with a nice bag of goodies that ticked my crafty box ... spotty ribbon, stripy string, rolls and rolls of washi tape... a wooden 'smile' and the most amazing big big chunky balls of wall for my gorgeous hubby Mr C!

If I've tempted you to  pay the show a visit it's on until Sunday the 24th March.

So don't be put off by the snow, wrap up warm, don your Wellington boots... take a friend (thanks byebyebirdie for coming along!) stop half way through for lunch to break things up a bit and boom Bob's your uncle - you've bagged yourself the perfect girly afternoon!

Let me know what crafty goods you take home.

happy crafting
