The Lee Mills Trunk Show
Yesterday, Angharad and I went to Sheffield with a selection of things from the Knitting & Crochet Guild collection in two suitcases - a large one with knitted and crocheted items and a smaller (but equally heavy) one with publications and a few tools and gadgets. It was a new venture - we showed the contents to the Sheffield branch of the Guild, as a way of making the collection more accessible. The visit went very well - it is such an amazing collection that it's easy to fill a couple of suitcases with fascinating material.
I'm not going to show very much of what we took, because it would spoil the surprise,
should the trunk show come your way in the future, but here are a couple of crochet doileys that Angharad chose. The butterfly doiley was specially starched for the occasion, so that the butterfly wings stood up as intended.
