All my crafty goodies!!

Ok here goes with the pics of all the stuff I bought yesterday! I actually met up with 2 of my aunts and my gran at the SECC, it wasn't arranged before I booked to go, they happened to mention a couple of days before that they were going when they heard I was going too!! I haven't seen them since New Year so it was great to catch up with them :o)

Both my aunts are cross stitch mad and although I haven't done any for a while I must admit I do like Cross stitching as well so we started off in the stitching hall. There really were some gorgeous kits and I couldn't resist these two.......

The baby shoe one was reduced to £2.99 so how could I NOT buy it?? The latte one is going to be for my kitchen (we are putting a new kitchen in later in the year) I thought I could take some of the lovely bright colours for paint and accessories!

After lunch we headed over to the hobby craft hall and this was the bit I was most looking forward to (I'm sure you're not surprised to hear that lol)

I have no idea what half of the stalls were called, I really just concentrated on what they HAD!!
Set of nesties: label
Fiskars threading water punch
silver stickles
pink liquid pearls
cute wee birdie stamp
Lilac and aqua papers by Dovecraft (£1 so got two!)
cream tone papers by Papermania

2 pack jewel brads (clear and lilac/green)
2 packs eyelets (lilacs and greens)
pastel brads
glue pen
and whole pile of charms!!

Plenty of rolls of DS tape (they were 2 for £1)
15 mini rolls of ribbon (15 rolls for £6)
2 packs Papermania flowers
some more ribbon :o)

These Fiskars goodies were given to me by Lorraine's boss as I said goodbye to Lorraine on my way to the bus!! How good was that? One of the finger blades and some stencils.......fab!
I was already planning on going to the fair in October by the time I got on the bus to come home and when I mentioned it to Ian when I got home he reminded me that its the weekend of his son's wedding in Gretna so sadly I won't be going!! Ah well never mind, maybe I can talk him into stopping in on the way home on the Sunday lol
