stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
Knowing we were celebrating a few birthdays in March, we decided to plan a Jo Blox weekend away, around the opening of the new Kaffe Fassett exhibition at the American Museum in Bath. We also took time to look around the rest of the museum while we were there and partake of an excellent cream tea. The exhibition was a riot of colour (as you’d expect) and worth a visit if you’re in the area – there are more quilts in the main building and some of his drawings too.
The sun was shining, the daffodils were out and we were greeted by this fabulous display outside before we’d even got there.
We obviously took the opportunity to visit the local quilt and yarn shops in the town.
The Makery, about to move around the corner upstairs to larger premises (hooray)! was having a little sale.
The wool shop, called “wool” was well stocked and just up the road from
Country Threads, which had a fantastic selection of Kaffes and another back room full of lovely fabric.
Get Knitted near Bristol (15 mins drive away) had this great Hexie throw out to inspire us and a few bargains too.
With a delicious meal at Jamies Italian and a few glasses of wine,
followed by lots of present opening, we did have a grand time 🙂
