Craft show...

On Wednesday Kayly and I went to the Stitches and craft Show ( Brisbane). We had a long day and when I went to visit Kayly today it seems that she might just be spreading rumours about me being a shopoholic. She says I was still shopping at closing time. Aren't friends supposed to support you and keep your secrets? To be fair, I was still shopping at closing time but that was because I had just found some felted wool pieces I wanted. I actually achieved what I wanted at the show - I got a pet mesh bag kit which I wanted to make for summer. Of course there was the felted wool and a pattern from The Birdhouse for making a pincushion. I did get some small kits which I haven't shown because they are for secret gifties - and that was also something I had planned to look out for.

 Interestingly a large pile of fat quarters jumped into my hands near the end of the day as well - I just liked them and they are the sort of fabric I like to use for smaller projects - bags, purses and sewing accessories.
We did go and have a good look at the Queensland Quilters show which was packed with beautiful quilts, giving us lots of ideas. If you have the time check it out - although the photographs don't look nearly as good as the real thing.
The next two pictures ( taken with permission) are of part of the stand from Giggle Buttons. They are working with Red Brolly as well so the display was very impressive. I also had a chat with Joy here - we always seem to find each other at Craft shows.


Come back and visit me tomorrow as I am going to talk about a little something I bought at the show and will be sharing.

Wow, what a great stash! I think you must have enough fabric for a few years! It looks lovely, I love the woollies! I like the stand of Gigglie Buttons, the colors are so light en fresh! Good luck with finding enough petterns to create beauty out of all this fabric! Warm greetings

Great post Lynda!!! I fully understand your buying habits...a person really must buy something when he/she sees it as he/she may never see it for sale again!

I didn't use the 'shopoholic' word!!!!!
You're an industry supporter instead.
