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 ๐Ÿ˜

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 ๐Ÿ™ˆย I did also manage to get a selfie with her ๐Ÿ˜Ž

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!

Stitches and crafts fair

Hello readers! 

I hope you all had a terrific weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ I sure did! This weekend was the stitches and crafts fair in Brisbane and it was pretty good!

When we entered, there was this amazing wall of knitted and crocheted items. So bright and colourful!   

All the shops were pretty good, I got a new self healing cutting mat for my sewing and some new fabric to go with my March SAL (update soon to come about this one). 

Then, I got so amazed by the work from the Brisbane Quilters guild! 

  
  Some people are just so gifted! And my personal favourite was, of course, marine themed!  

I just felt so inspired, I really want to start quilting! Maybe one day soon, when my WIPs list is smaller ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Have you been to a craft fair recently? I would love to hear about your experience!
