Here are the only fillies out on the gallops at Aintree Racecourse today....
Carol carolcsstuff, Jo JoZarty (that's me!), and Neet hickydorums give an airing to the WOYWW badges at the Aintree Craft Show. No other WOYWW badges to be seen! A relaxing day, as it was not very busy today so we could look at leisure and even find seats in the food hall.
We met up with quite a few other friends, including Ann, with her fab new purple hair, and her DD Wendy.... those bags look stuffed!!!
Lots of exhibitions including the annual Madeira embroidery competition...
The well deserved Winner-Sally Wilson of West Yorkshire.
Highly Commended, Gill Kirk of Yorkshire
My top favourite by Christina Hudson of Lancashire
The Merseyside Embroiderers Guild had an excellent display and as I admired this exquisite goldwork geisha, I realised it was made by my lovely talented embroidery/textiles tutor from way back! Beautiful work June!
Some of the costumes from the Downton Abbey TV series on display
Liverpool Community College provided some examples of their fab fun extreme designs....
The front dress is made of Tesco carrier bags, the next from latex gloves
The black outfit is made from bin bags!!
A few of the stands in the exquisite exhibition "The Art of Lace"
I spent lots of dosh for not a lot.... a standard daylight lamp for a bargain price, some new plates for my Vagabond, stocks of redline tape, and quite a bit of fabric but not one rubber stamp!
Still time for you to visit the show, if you are interested, as it's on tomorrow that's Friday, and also Saturday.
An excellent mixed craft show with something for everyone, but most of all I really enjoyed the exhibitions.
