Olympian Day Out...

Just got back after a great day at the Stich and Craft show at Olympia, London. My daughter got us tickets for my mothers day gift but she was unwell and had to stay at home!
I did indulge just a wee bit as you can see by these photos- again, a bit if a mixed bag but I could not resist!

This patriotic assortment will be great for hearts methinks!

 A single fat quarter of this divine Liberty lawn refused to be left behind!

What with the Olympics and the jubilee this year, London featured big at the show and this is perfect for a tote or messenger bag. 

As is this!

The best part of the show for me was the wonderful display of quilts that have been made for each team at the Olymics and Paralympics- called a Gift of Quilts. A few of my favourites were the following, and I apologise for having no details of the makers nor which country they are for.

Fabulous work , lots of ideas to be stored and used in the future!

Ps - I have been tagged , and my reply is at this moment in time a work in progress.....



  1. Ooh, some lovely buys there! Loving the patriotic assortment, and the old map. You will have lots of fun with those! Amazing quilts too. I'm just sorry I didn't know this was on!

  2. Smashing buys, I always buy lots of different things when I go to shows, just can't resist them all! Julie xxx

    1. Thanks for following Liz, and welcome. I think the London fabrics are going to be very popular this season!!
      Quilts were inspiring- back to the drawing board!
