Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair

Happy Monday lovely readers!

Yesterday I had a great day at the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair. I was there all day, from 9:30 to 3:30! The show had lots of beautiful quilts on display, some were truly amazing! My favourite ones were the ones with all the Australian animals, they were so beautiful 😍

I also had the immense honour to meet the crochet designer Kerry Lord. She just released her newest crochet book last Friday, Edward’s Crochet Doll Emporium and I was able to buy it and get it signed!! I was fan-girling like crazy and I hope she didn’t think I was too weird 🙈 I did also manage to get a selfie with her 😎

I just can’t wait to be reunited with my stash to make a mini me and a mini Dylan (my husband).

I also started to buy some Christmas presents, one for my nana and one for my aunty and I also got a little something for myself! I bought myself a kit to learn Sashiko, a Japanese embroidery technique. I also got to take a class on the day and it was super awesome!

I hope you guys had a great weekend too, and I wish you an amazing week!

  1. Wow the quilting looks amazing, some so vibrant, some dance before your eyes. My favourites are the 1st one on second row, and the heron. Glad you had a good day and what a scoop-a signed book and a selfie.
