I’m back to share a few more photos of my day at l’Aiguille en Fête yesterday. First the goodies . . . from JARDIN PRIVé a chart and 2 small hornbooks (the Amitié chart was a gift)
some cardboard hearts from DER FEINE FADEN
and some very expensive ribbons / lace which is red (not pink, that’s a problem with my flash) (will be careful how I use these!)
My daughter was looking for some dress-making patterns and since they were cheaper if you bought lots . . .
That was all the buying we did. I think you’ll agree that we were more than reasonable.
Yesterday was also the opportunity to meet Mamoures, a stitching friend “met” a few years ago on a French forum. She lives in the NE of France but came to AEF with several ladies from her stitching club. We had exchanged telephone numbers before, so were able to meet up at the show. From left to right: me, my daughter and Mamoures.
We exchanged gifts, as is the tradition when stitchers meet. I gave Mamoures a handmade bookmark and an array of printed fabric (which I forgot to take photo of). And Mamoures gave me . . .
