Stitches West – I met Alana!

I didn’t have much time to be at Stitches West this year, just ran over during my lunch hour. But for that 1 hour I had so much fun!  I got some buttons for my owlet sweater, some Tosh DK (georgeous!) in “oxblood” and the highlight of the show was running into Alana Dakis, designer, blogger and podcaster, from  She’s one of my favorite designers and her blog definitely keeps me up to date on the new yarns and patterns that I must have!  Now I just need to track down Ysolda Teague and I’ll have met all of my favorite designers 🙂  Also, she interviewed one of my dear friends from the Quilt Otaku blog, check out the podcast!!
