Guerrilla Crafter takes a trip.

I have recently been off on my crafting travels to Liverpool for all things inspirational. And how excited I was as my craftily creative agenda consisted of Galleries, Museums, walks round The Bombed out Church  where the beautiful Urban Strawberry Lunch reside and Egg Cafe lunches. Also to meet up with my long lost sewing pal ally of Sticking With You. So the sun was shining the train was chuffing and I could barley contain my crafting excitement.


My first crafting experience upon arrival in the Big L was a visit to The Bluecoat Gallery and what a haven of  creative inspiration. If you ever get chance to go please pop by  Landbaby at the Bluecoat, an aladdin's cave of the most beautiful handmade textiles and jewellery.


After a walk around the stunning gardens, galleries and studios I could not contain my craftily creative ways and decided to do a small amount of Guerriller Crafting. 


I hope my Guerrilla Crafting ways gave the visitors of The Bluecoat a little something beautiful to look at and think about.

My crafting journey around the Big L continues but my post I am afraid ends here as Nina the Bernina is calling and I cannot neglect my first love.
