Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2019

This festival has been on my bucket list of must visits for a few year's.

For me my time in Edinburgh has not just been about yarn, it has been way way more.  It has been about a journey of beginning to believe in myself as a designer. Also about overcoming the anxiety of being away from my family.
It has been about having the confidence to go up to people I have never met and talking to them.

But it has also been about gathering inspiration and learning and boy does Edinburgh have inspiration by the bucket load!!!

The architecture is just beyond what I have seen before and the colours are just such an inspiration.

So please do enjoy journey I have taken over the last few days in picture form.

On my final day at the show I bought the Laine knitting journal, which will be so great for designing. But decided to grap the opportunity of creating the most perfect keepsake and ask people I admire to sign what ever they wanted.  The messages are so amazing and inspiring, thank you.

My urban garden.

I can't believe this time last week temperatures where about 17° and I spent a lovely few hours with my boy at Winchcombe.

Today is heavy rain, strong winds and storm Freya.  But before the rain set in too much I took the chance to photograph some of beautiful spring flowers that have suddenly popped up in the garden.

I am by no means an expert, but I know my garden brings me so much joy.

Do you have a hobby you love? I'd love to hear about it.
