Well, as if I didn't already know that there was some seriously cool craftsters south of the border, I had my face delightfully rubbed in it when I entered level four of the Stitches and Craft Show on Saturday.
Amitie, Ink and Spindle (seriously lovely ladies in some pretty funky strides!), Dear Fii, Pippijoe, Audrey & Maude, Mixtape ... and I could go on and on.
Instead I'll just show you the loot ...
Keeping it local with a bit of Saffron Craig, Ink and Spindle, Pippijoe, and yes ok, some really local Prints Charming and Kirsten Doran (there are some goodies left in NSW!).
Not so local Liberty via Amitie. My first lot and no I can't stop stroking it. Will I ever cut it? No, probably not.
And finally I got my you-know-what into gear and signed up for a Mixtape subscription and devoured these on Saturday night.
Now, I keep getting told (by my local quilting shop mind you), that buying fabric is cheaper than therapy, but in my case the reverse is beginning to be true. And so I am putting myself on a "buy no fabric" month for September (you notice I am not starting it straight away right?).
Anyone care/need to join me?
