Dublin Knitting and Stitching Show – The Loot

A couple of weeks ago, I did my yearly pilgrimage to the Knitting and Stitching Show in the RDS and as usual, I didn’t come back empty handed.

These will go into a bracelet with fabric squares between beads….

You can never have too many buttons… and I am thinking of experimenting with knitting fabric strips.

This yard of jersey has already turned into two scarves for Lucie and me.

The find of the show was this cute little stand where Jane Walsh exhibited a very cute range of jewellery made of buttons encased in plastic. Check out her site www.buttonstudio.ie. I just couldn’t resist.

I was thrilled to catch up again with Nancy Crow’s Color Improvisations exhibition after first seeing it in France two years ago. I am in total awe of the quilting artistry that has gone into these quilts and it really makes me want to up my game in that respect. I had to spring for the collection catalogue this time :

All in all, a very fruitful visit !
