You can teach an old dog.....

Hmm, maybe not the most flattering of headlines, but I feels so inspired, if I had a hill to run down singing, I would. And I'm only half done!

I spent a few hrs at the show today, where there is a whole section for blogger craft, plus all the usual stamping, beading, embroidery, knitting...just about anything a crafty sewey type like me could want. I did a few rows, had a few chats, and then a few more chats (!) and had a browse at about half the stalls- look what I got when I subscribed to Homespun....

4 bias binding makers, fusible tape, and 2 back issues.

An the new trick I learnt- rubber stamps. Holly of Two Cheese Please shared this with us, and I now one the tool, some rubber bits and a new hobby! Little Miss liked the chicken stamp, I told her to find me some pics and I'll make her some (so she doesn't cut her fingers off!)

I am returning with her in tow tomorrow, to do a kid sort of craft lab, and lots of looking. I dare say lots of treats to keep her quiet, too, but it'll be worth it, I hope.

Off to read my magazines and rest up.....

It was so great to see you at the show, and of course to have such an awesome chica in my stamp carving class! You made one cute chicken that's for sure!
