Knit and Stitch and Autumn Colour
It's obviously obligatory to document purchases from Knit and Stitch. I had my spending money budget and I stuck to it despite the purchase of a wonderful African basket which wasn't on my list but is both beautiful AND functional! Apart from that I bought sari thread; fabric paints;Jae Maries book ;'Art of the stitch' Catalogue; Valdini threads; cotton organza; African batik 1/2 metres.
And a brief opportunity to document the 'red time' in our garden - even had lunch outside on Sunday between showers. I have a running battle with Virginia Creeper but I must admit it looks wonderful at this time of year.
Meanwhile, after first day of conference spent on registration desk ( sods law, the first person to register , from Brazil, wasn't on our list....) it seems a world away . Good to catch up with people from other countries, continents and times. And the red medicine helps. Time to set the alarm for 5.30am..
