This was our first visit to one of these venues. On entering you are presented with a large plastic bag to hold your purchases. There was a glorious array of wool, fibres and yarns, so much temptation. Everything was sold by weight and of course the materials feel quite light, you could easily get carried away and yes we did.
However, we have a gorgeous stash of goodies to show for it.

|definitely need some of this|
Carolyn's taken it all home, but next time she visits we will inspect and stroke our wears so we'll show you then.
Another outing yesterday was an invitation to the Tate St. Ives for the opening of their summer exhibition. My man and I got dressed up and had a lovely evening, fabulous Barbara Hepworth sculptures and Patrick Heron silk screen prints. Obviously I couldn't take photographs of the exhibition but here is a few of St. Ives.
|love visiting St. Ives|
