Bristol Parchment Show


Yesterday I went to the Bristol Parchment show,  it was brilliant, I really had a great day.  There was a lot of parchment on show, unfortunately I did not take any photographs this year,  but came away with some brilliant ideas,  and of course there was plenty to buy,  well what crafter goes to a craft show and does not spend a bit.  I brought some lovely patterns and some parchment paper and some parchment flowers from Carol.
I meet Carol from Carols parchment Place link to her Blog.  She was the lady who got into the CD Sunday Challenges,  do pop along to her blog and see her great stitching designs and parchment.
I also had a lesson from Judith Marslen from www.judithmaslen.co.uk,  she showed me how to colour parchment, something a shy away from but from now on I will be trying.  She made me laugh by telling me when colouring and using felt tip pens with water, it drys very quickly so ignore the phone and door bell,  my husband was watching her colour in these flowers, so I told him that included him, she agreed.
We had a late lunch at a pub on the way home, all in all a great day out.
If you fancy a new craft or help with parchment (like me). I well recommend this show and hopefully they will have another one next year.
Hope you are keeping well, until we meet again take care.


  1. I sounds like an ideal way to spend a day Margaret, and fun as well.
    I am home to a cold Britain this week after 32 degrees, wish I could stay here lol

  2. Hi Margaret. Thank you for those kind words. I was out to supper this evening with the girls and I showed them the beautiful tatted bookmark you made for me. It was very much admired - rightly so.
    I will post a picture on my blog when I have taken a decent photograph. It was lovely to see you both again. Lets hope to do it again in 2014.

  3. Pleased you had a good day out x
