Alice and the NEC


I am entering this inspired by Alice in wonderland/drunk guitarists card into the following challenges:

Artstic impressions - anything goes
left of center -favourite books
the fox and the squirrell - inspired by a book

Last weekend I went to the NEC Sewing and Hobbycraft show this weekend it was wonderful, lots of exhibitors, artists and great companies. Here are a few photos from the day.

I can not recommend it enough, the mix of stalls and exhibitions was really inspiring. I tried new things meet some wonderful ladies on the silk painting and came home with a new hobby - needle felting. When you are clumsy with plump fingers this is an extreme sport,  below are my first attempts. I still have use of most fingers.
