stitches and hos on Radio WM (again)

stitches and hos were on the radio again.  Our Easter Egg Hunt event at Wolverhampton Art Gallery got a mention on Radio WM drivetime on Wednesday.

You can listen to it here (we’re at 51mins in).  After our mention the DJ then plays Pet Shop Boys – Always On My Mind.  I couldn’t have done a better link myself

Don’t forget our one off special at Wolverhampton Art Gallery is 31st March, 6-9pm.  For more details look here

hello stitchers

I’m busy getting all spring like for our Easter egg hunt event at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on 31st March 2010.  It seems that the official signs of spring are here.  I’ve recently been to the Cotswolds and there were loads of snowdrops

Our Easter egg hunt event is part of the Jann Haworth exhibition.  The lovely ladies from Sugarfoot Stomp will provide sounds to stitch to, there will be a cake stall and of course an Easter egg hunt round the gallery.

I’ve finally cracked (sorry!) how to knit in the round on double pointed needles.  It’s taken a while – but it now means that I can get on and make the knitted eggs for the Easter egg hunt.

Here’s the first one.  The pattern came from purl bee who have 2 amazing shops in New York – one for patchwork and one for knitting and crochet.
