I sewed on two petals while I was there.
Boy, this will help me finish this project. It was noon when we were finished with class. We stood in line a long time to get something to eat. I decided just to get a hot dog. I was chomping at the bit to get to the booths selling stuff. I found some great stuff. There was a most darling quilt kit that looked easy. I couldn't resist.
There was a booth with a lady sitting there embroidering. I loved the bowl of gorgeous embroidered eggs and bought the pattern and some felt and some thread.
I later found out that I had bought the lady's tape measure kit on Etsy and made it a while back.
She was the actual designer of the pattern. So it was great to meet her in person.
That booth also had the Sue Spargo thread that will be useful in the class we are taking next month.
I saw the Sue Spargo quilt that we will be stitching a block of. It was way smaller that I realized. But very cute.
That evening we went to a lecture from Stacey Thoyre who was our teacher for the weekend classes. She talked about embroidery at the Burrell Collection. That is a museum in Glasgow that I went to on my tour. She was very interesting and we very much enjoyed the lecture. After it was over we went out to eat at a place called Johnny's. Oh my was the food good! The only bad part was the awful music playing too loud.
This was a very full and busy day but lots of fun. I had a sneaking suspicion that I already had that egg pattern. When I got home, I found it.
