Craft & Quilt Fair


Last Thursday I loaded up my car with a few things and headed off to Launceston for the Craft & Quilt Fair.



We had 3 lovely days of selling our wares and got to catch up with many bloggers and old friends


There was lots to see and do and lots of retail therapy on offer.  I indulged maybe once or twice or maybe even more :)


One of my favourite purchases was a kit from Pauline at Calico Crossroads to make Gail Pan's gorgeous Embrodiery Thread Book to hold 24 Cottage Garden Threads. 


I was ordered to rest when I got home from the fair so what better way than with stitching on my lap?  I finished the stitchery and in no time


finished my gorgeous folder.  Looks maybe deceiving because closed it measures 10" square.  Isn't it delightful?  I think Pauline still has some kits available so if you want to make one like mine just drop her a line.

I hope you are having a good week?  It is raining here today so after a trip to the miracle worker (aka my haridresser) I will be putting my feet up and doing a little stitching for a friend with a snuggly quilt on my lap.
