I haven't blogged much lately because i have been so busy, recently i went to the knitting and stitching show in London for the UHKA Knitted Textile awards. It was great fun and I loved showing my work to everyone and meeting loads of graduates that are in exactly the same position as I am haha! So I took some pictures of the work I liked to post.
This was my stand, I was so overwhelmed by the lovely compliments and cannot wait to go to the Harrogate show!
