Craft & Stitches show






I went to the Melbourne Craft & Stitches show yesterday with my lovely artist friend Anna.
So many pretty fabrics, and I was so strong and didn't buy even a scrap...lol For those of you who have seen my stash and heard me say a bazillion times "I'm not buying anymore fabric, I have too much" well I was actually true to my word...Oh it was difficult though.
So many gorgeous quilts and bags to see, really beautiful things made by very talented ladies. I wish I had remembered to take some pics but I was so mesmerised by all the goodies I forgot.
I bought some pretty pearl trim for my lamps, some sparkly beads for I have no idea what, some pretty applique pictures for my cushions and quilts, some buttons, bag handles and a shadow trapunto kit of a gorgeous fairy.. And of course this lovely pink bag..
A lovely day which inspired me to get sewing..Have a nice day!

Hi Cherrie I am so glad I can't go to the Stitches anad Craft Show this year as I would have spent way to much money.
You sure restrained yourself and only bought a few goodies.

Sounds like a wonderful day! You found some pretty things! Can't wait to see what you do with them all!!
I bet it really took a lot of restraint for you not to buy fabric!
Thanks for stopping in my blog and for your sweet comments!

Cherrie,
I'm so proud of you for resisting to buy fabric. I am a fabricoholic and I have a hard time walking away from the cutting counter! You found some lovely treasures! I miss craft fairs. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
Hugs,
Laurie
