My freind Lynn and I went to the Craft Expo yesterday … Great fun!!!
I had to take two shots to get it all in!!! Isn’t it a fabulous effort – so many hexagon ‘flowers’ donated by so many wonderful quilters :o)!!!
Of course, there was shopping to be done, I found some wonderful stores that I couldn’t walk away from empty handed! This is Jane from Be Be Bold, she had a fantastic array of Japanese fabrics … this one I simply HAD to have. Don’t you love how the one side is spots and the other side is gingham??!! Yep, your eyes don’t deceive you, that’s just one fabric, with TWO different looks. GAWJUS!!!!!!!
I bought the terrific canvas tape there too, to make the handles, cos of course this just HAS to (eventually) become my new shopping bag :o) … and also a few things more from some other stores – the beautiful dragonfly fabric was from Indigo Niche and will be used to make another of my “night flight” tablerunners!! …. and how about these adorable little scissors… These are a little over an inch and a half (4.5cm) from top to bottom, and they’re spring loaded. Perfect for plane travel. HAD to have ‘em ;o)!!! HAD to have these cute little charms too ~ if you click on the pic you’ll probably be able to see them better. I just fell in love with the sweet little owls on the bottom right …See … I didn’t buy too much ;o). You should see what I DIDN’T buy he he ~ aaaah, such will power :o).
I’ve got some good news about my Mum too … I get to bring her home from hospital tomorrow!!! She’s going to stay here with us while she’s (literally) getting back on her feet. Thank you all so much for your good wishes, I passed them all on to Mum and she was chuffed to bits :o)!!
