On Wednesday I went to the Brisbane Craft & Quilt Fair. met up with quite a few lovely ladies, wandered around..all day...spent some money.....got a few new ideas......ooh and aahed over some quilts and generally had a very satisfying day. I'm a bit worn out today and a bit more cashless. Here is part of why:
a few little pieces of Christmas fabric for something ...secret.sewing.... I bought a cute little pack of 1/10ths!! I unpacked them last night before the photo...shame ...they looked really cute in their little holder...
a few 30cm pieces for some Aussie Hero BOMs I make sometimes,
a bit of ric rac from a grumpy old man who won't sell half metres and rounds the price up to an even dollar ($1.85 became $2, and I couldn't be bothered arguing...but I won't be looking at his stuff again),
a sashiko Christmas tree...(I'd love to start it now but...) and
some red and white to make a quick Engagement present.
There were a few other expenses too - some parlan, something from the "new ideas" department that I really cannot show and I re-joined Queensland Quilters...and purchased the fat quarter for the 2015 Challenge - another Christmas break project...(I need at least 4 weeks off to even skim the surface of my proposed To Do list).
I'm not so sure where all the $$$$ went but I didn't buy anything just for the sake of it.
It was good to see a few new retailers too.
I've been busy and a bit distracted lately, hopefully I can get back to some more blog posts, visits and comments over the next few weeks...though I do have a few things on my sewing (and working) plate/s.
