Killer of a Craft Fair!


Very exciting day today! My sister and I were off to this Craft Fair and Quilt show. Just us, no kids in tow! Set the alarm for 7, bounced out of bed, usually I am so groggy in the morning and don't function till Daz leaves for work and I have a coffee in my hand. On the train by 8.20 and meet my sister at just before 9 in the city. We walked down to the Convention Centre where it was held and breezed in with our pre paid tickets that Mum had brought us for our Mothers Day pressies.

I did promise myself that I wouldn't get that much material as I really have heaps already and I wanted to just get quilty gadget things! Well........ lots of FQ's later! I did get these two triangle rulers, supposedly to make cutting triangles a breeze! Some more rotary blades (3 for $10!) A years subscription to Quilters Companion. A bundle of skinny 1/8th's. And lots of FQ's! The black and brown print I'm thinking of making some twirly skirts with. The material above, the photo just doesn't do it justice, such a beautiful print! I am going to design a single bed sized quilt for Grace's bed. Then maybe by the time I finish that, Milly will be out of her toddler bed and into a single bed too so will have to think about making her one.

But a fantastic day was had, as Ad said on departure, "It was a killer of a craft fair!"

Oooh, such fun fabric purchases and new notions as well. I'm rarely able to resist fabric either! Glad I'm not the only one!
