Craft Fair Finds

On Friday Yvonne and I went to the WA Craft, Quilt and Stitch Fair at the Claremont show grounds. There were so many yummy things to see and buy. I was extremely self controlled, *vbg*, and only bought some Trefle Babushka fabric from the lovely ladies at Catharina's Country Collection, and some acrylic stamps from Nicole at Craft Queen.

My friend Jenny came over today for a bag making lesson, we both managed to whip up another Pleated Beauty Bag. I used some of my favourite AMH fabric for this one. I used it earlier this year for a bag I made as a door prize & knew I needed to make one for myself too – different lining fabric this time.

DH & I have been to Pingelly twice in the last week or so, the first occasion for a wedding (which Andy had the pleasure of performing) and second time for a funeral. It was lovely to catch up with precious friends at both, it’s amazing how these occasions bring people together (lots of laughter and tears). I did make myself an outfit for the wedding, the fabric and pattern both came from work. I will post a photo later…
With Love

I nearly bought you one of those babushka stamps at my craft shop the other day as i know you love anything babushka, when i turned around they were gone. I love the other ones (haven't seen them in my shop yet)
Still am nowhere near making any bag yet. Cant wait to see your outfit.
