It was that time of the year again, and I made my way into Perth for the annual Craft & Quilt Fair. Met up with the lovely blogging girls again and this time got to meet some new ladies to. It's always so lovely to catch up, as it's my only chance to talk stitching and sewing with some like minded friends. They are always great fun.
The Fair seemed a little smaller this year, not as many rows of booths as before. Most disappointing of all was the one cross stitch booth, and the majority of merchandise on offer were old designs and kits. No wonder us cross stitchers resort to online shopping for supplies, they just don't have the wonderful supplies and designers here like over in the US.
Some great fabric stalls, trims and embellishment stalls and tools and gadgets though!
Here's a photo of the goodies I bought.
A set of strip piecing rulers, hexagon tablemat kit, Rosalie Quinlan bunny kit, trims, unpicker tool, snowflake charms, a cross stitch kit with hanger, Winter themed cross stitch book and a cute elephant themed bunny rug kit complete with gorgeous minky fabric.
I have some more photos on my phone which I have to work out how to download, they are of some of the lovely quilts on display at the Fair. My blogging friend Julia had a quilt in the show and she won Second Place in the "Professional Traditional" section with a gorgeous Dresden, she was also recognised with a "Retaining The Tradition" award. Congratulations Julia, it was just stunning to see it in person.
I forgot to show you all a completed photo of my Prairie House stitchery. I decided to do it all in red.
Until next time, happy stitching/sewing
