Hobart Craft Fair

Yesterday a friend and myself drove down to Hobart to go to the Craft Fair. It was actually the first time I had been (I had been when it was in Launceston, but hadn't been since it went to Hobart)! I didn't buy much, just a couple of patterns, a zip coin purse kit, some wool and wooden needles to make some socks:
There were heaps of lovely quilts on display, here is a selection:

I totally LOVE this one, hand pieced...... it must have taken SO long to make this - how AMAZING!!


And, I left the best until last......... how cool is this one??!!

On the way down, we stopped of at Campbell Town for a 'half way coffee' and ran into Cathy, Leanne and friends who were already stopped for their re-charge!

Then, when we were browsing all those gorgeous quilts on display, we found Jo!! Jo was working on one of the stands as well!
Better get going, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

Wow Sarah what amazing quilts. Some of those quilts must have taken years, either that or those people have more time than they know what to do with, they are incredible. What a great day out you had.

The quilts are amazing;) I'm going to the International Quilt Festival next month in Long Beach, California and I can't wait;) Hand knit socks are the best;) Would love to see your socks when you get them finished;)
