My Olympia trip...

On Thursday I went to the Stitch & Craft Show at Olympia and had quite a nice day out. I made my way around the ground floor before heading down to the lower ground where I booked myself into a knitted flower brooches class and managed to make a couple of flowers lol. I even learned to purl properly after being able to knit for years. I also went up to the top floor for a look around too and got a free goody bag from the RUcraft stand.

Here are my flowers:
