Craft Hobby + Stitch International

Happy Tuesday everyone! Lucy and I went to the CHSI 2016! Whohoo! We were press apparently.. OK, I just got an invite because Lucy sneaked me in. And I loved it. You have to excuse the quality of the pictures though- it was so dark that most of my pictures came out too dark - some not to be rescued even after some heavy editing. I managed to actually meet people I have emailed loads like Justine and Lisa, stalked on IG like Karen and Jeni ... Loads of inspiration and renewed interest in new crafting on the blog (some inspiration was definitely with Baby MiH's in mind).
It was a great - also it was a trade show and there was no chance to buy stuff (yes this is a good thing) - keeping my stash as it is. I do have a couple of ethical fibre to check out though. Cannot wait.
And there was so much scrapbooking material - this is not a craft I am interested in, so I was amazed so much was actually available. I do have a scrapbook inspiration book - I will share soon here - but it is not what was being sold there. I am just wondering whether I should be interested in it, or why I am not when so many people find it addictive. Have you tried scrapbooking before?
Anyhow, the best thing was to spend some time with Lucy - and also for her to bring the #therearenowordsquilt. I will post about them later this week, and all the letters I received from quilters all over the world. It is beautiful. So much love went into them. Yes, we both had a cry - and nearly missed our trains back home!
