A Day at the Fair

On Friday, TJ & I shared a lovely day of crafty inspiration at the Perth leg of the Craft & Quilt fair. We Ooo’d & Ahh’d at all the fabulous creations, patterns & yummy fabric. We even met up with some bloggy friends too – the gorgeous Suzitee & her DD Lydia. Check out Susan’s funky Birkenstocks!

I was on the lookout for Kellie's Garden Party Quilt & found it at the ‘A Quilting Passion’ stand. It is ever so lovely, Kellie’s Free Motion Quilting is incredible!

I also made a beeline for the Amitie stand & had a lovely chat with the ladies. I bought some fabric & the ‘Bags It’ pattern (which includes the Not Another Green Bag & Nan's Knitting Bag) by Red Mumma - I got her to sign it too :)

I also wanted to make special mention of the wonderful ladies at Anne Gadsby Designs, they happily replaced a friends pattern (Chocolate & Roses) that she had paid for & left behind on the Wednesday. Crafty people are just so lovely! My other purchases included some Garden Party Fat 1/4’s from Hot Possum, Oh so Yummy. 

I am off to High Tea at Leaf Tea Merchants again tomorrow with TJ & her girlfriends. TJ, Kev, Kaleb & Talia fly out to the UK this coming Thursday - for an adventurous year abroad. TJ - I love you & will miss you heaps sweetie, make sure you start your own crafty blog so we can see the bags & quilts you create! 

The Sewing Sisters are away in Port Arlington for another Sewing Weekend, they are both making amazing progress – can’t wait to see the finished products. 2&1/2 weeks to go…

With Love
