My day at the Stitch and Craft Show...

I went to the Stitch and Craft Show today for the first time ever. It was good fun but Alexandra Palace is still my favourite. There were not as many Papercraft stalls as I hoped for but I still managed to find some lovely goodies to add to my ever growing stash. I also had a chat with Claire Curd and she lovely, it was nice to meet her.
This is a photo of the ground floor taken from the 1st floor balcony. It was quiet when we first arrived but it soon filled up.
There were some of the regular stalls that are at Farnborough and Ally Pally but I found that they were selling the same old stash. I did like the Craft Fairy stall and bought a few packs of flowers and ribbons.
One stall really caught my eye, Shimelle was doing demos at the show and had a lovely little stall filled to the brim with yummy colourful goodies!

There was lots of American Crafts and the Dear Lizzy Range, lovely stamps ....
......gorgeous scrummy papers....I treated myself to some of these!
Shimelle doesn't have a shop or sell online, such a shame as she has impeccable taste! I would buy everything!
These gorgeous buttons were on The Eternal Maker stand, it was a pick and mix, I loved the bright colours.
So..... what did I buy??
Lots of paper,cardstock, flowers and buttons.

The beautiful butterfly paper is by Jenni Bowlin and I bought a miniature stack of mixed Jenni Bowlin papers too.
Lots of lovely new things to play with!
I hope you are having a lovely weekend.
