For my Mum’s birthday this year I bought her (and me!!) a ticket to the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate.
The morning starts early so we can arrive for breakfast in Bettys. This is a beautiful cafe, which is so elegant!
As you can see my Dad (who loves cameras ….can you tell?) and Annice came along too!

We arrive early so we can get into the Show as soon as it opens. It is sooooo busy!

After wearing The Poppy this week I had so many comments on it, that I am planning to make some plain coloured dresses and use beautiful trimmings. I straight away thought of the shop I had seen last year and not bought anything So I made up for it today!

I was really pleased to find out from the lovely assistant it now has an online site too Aargi J
Here is a close up of the 3 I bought . I also bought some wool for a baby blanket for my nephew on the way and a bag clasp -so I can have a try at making a bag to match my Christmas party dress!

We had a lovely visit, but left just as it was starting to get very busy! A wise move!!


This year my favourite stall had lots of beautiful French fabric and buttons.

We called in for a lovely homemade lemonade and chocolate muffin to admire my purchases!
