I went to the Stitching Sewing & Hobbycrafts show at the ExCel, London yesterday. Obviously, I did some fabric shopping but there were other features, workshops and displays.

My favourite had to be Yarnia which is the incredible life-sized knitted and crocheted display.

This display was created in Canada and the USA and it depicts scenes from C.S. Lewis’s children’s classic – The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I am a Narnia film fan so seeing this unique display was a treat.

I am not a knitter but I do appreciate and admire the talent and craftsmanship on display here.

Here is the Forest Forever display which is a project based on leaf shapes and motifs in different shades of green and hand-embroidery.

The above work is named Happy Tree (Switzerland).

The above work is named Fall in the North Wood (Denmark).

I do not hand embroider but again, I do appreciate and admire this magnificent craftsmanship. It is wonderful to see such incredible talent.
