Craft Show

Wow, what a day. Yesterday was my best trip to the craft show ever. Being a blogger has changed the whole experience. The stalls were amazing - I bought so much more than I planned to. It was great to catch up with bloggers I knew, some I hadn't met, especially Teresa and Peg, and to find some new ones like Fiona and Carolyn. My photos didn't turn out so well, but I'm sure there will be lots of group pictures floating around by the end of the weekend.

Here is me, Deb and Kate at our old favourite Hatched & Patched (sorry it's a bit fuzzy).

The quilt show lived up to it's reputation with well over 300 quilts on display. The quality of the quilts made us feel a tad inadequate.

I'm not sure where to start with my purchases - I might have to spread them over a few posts so it doesn't look quite so indulgent. Let's just say I shouldn't need to go shopping for a while!

I couldn't resist Natalie Bird's new book, Red Home. The pincushion and dolls quilt are so cute. Oh, and a charm pack of yet another French General just happened to find it's way into my bag.

The only thing I really had on my list was a Rouennieres Deux layer cake, and here it is. I will admit that I have no plans for it at all, it was just one of those 'had to have' things.

It's cold and wet here today - lovely weather to spend the day fondling my new goodies. Back soon with some more photos.

  1. So glad you had a wonderful day. Always sad when it ends. Still those gorgeous purchases you brought home will extend the experience a little further.
    I suspect you did a lot of 'networking' while you were at the show?
    I am a fan of Natalie Bird and I am sure that I will love her new book too.

  5. It was good to see you again. I totally agree about the quilts. I spent most of Saturday looking at them. I found them inspirational. I came away wanting to try new styles and, dare I say it, colours outside my normal range.
