I've got a Bourse






I made a wish on the Make A Wish board (where else) for a bourse, and Amy granted my wish. I received this lovely bourse, but I don't think my photo's do it justice, it's a pretty lilac colour, and the outside fabric has little hearts on it. When I saw the inside it put a big smile on my face. I love it.

On the stitching front, nothing to show, and no stitching done! I went to the Crafts for Christmas show yesterday at the NEC and really enjoyed it, even though it took 4 hours to get there on the coach, due to the heavy traffic. There was a raffle on the coach and I was lucky enough to be a winner. I won a great big bag full of card making stuff, I do make cards occasionally so I'm sure we'll (dd and I) will be making some soon. I didn't buy a real lot there, one stitching chart, some magazines, 6 strings of beads for beadmaking, but I may be adding some to ornaments if I get the chance. I also bought a bracelet kit, a pork pie, some nuts, and some danish pastries.

Next weekend I'll be going the Knitting & Stitching show at Harrogate, so another day out, I plan on buying some fabric.

Lovely bourse. I was at the NEC on Saturday too. I did hear people talking about the traffic congestion.
