The craft fair ''London''

A very exciting day for me , as it was my first ever fair of this kind and also my first time to the Excel Centre London mashaAllah and a CRAFT fair on top of it wow how could i contain myself?

I decided to treat myself a few months ago when i first saw the add in the local paper , i purchased my tickets right away and took along youngest dd(age 8) with me as she is a crafter as well mashaAllah.

Stitch & Creative Craft Show-
here are some and i am afraid a very few pictures i took on the day ...too busy spending :)

Needle felting , a new craft for me , i did buy some bits to get us started on this but after a while now i am not to keen on this one, apart from the fact the kids keep breaking the needles.

It is really worth a visit to these such fairs as prices are much cheaper than anywhere i have seen. The cross stitch was very cheep and brand names.
yarn/wool galore and i didn't buy any! I asserted self control as i have a fair stash at home already awaiting production. I still had a look though.

Assalam-alaikam,
I think I would have been in seventh heaven here, not sure if I would have had the discipline you did. Would love to attend one of these. Have never tried decoupage, curious as to how difficult it would be and how attractive the result.

InshaAllah next time there is one on i will tell you and we can go togehter ukti? I did post some of my decoupage work here, its ideal for re-vamping i would say! Gives new life to old tattered things and add a unique touch.

Prayers for Peace
