What did I buy at The Knitting & Stitching show?

Ok. I realise I haven’t shown you what I bought yet. I know it’s rude of me but I have been so busy battling with tonnes of fabric to make a tablecloth for Christmas.

I wanted to find some fabric at the show for said tablecloth as my table is so big when extended that they are extortionate in price. They can’t be difficult to make thought I. They are simply straight hems!!!!!!!

Well, it was more awkward than difficult I have to say. I dont have a small space to work in but it sure felt like it. I wanted an elegant feel to the table so opted for an overhang of 50cm per side. This put the fabric I would need at 3m by 2m.

So, without further ado…….here is the fabric……

And this is what I fought with it for……

I apologise for the terrible piccies. The weather here today is so dark and autumnal it’s lights all the way.

I guess you wanna know what else I bought right?

The fabric on the right is for a bag I want to make by Lisa Kan. The other fabrics – well I just loved them.

And a bright zesty jelly roll
