Craft & Quilt Fair

Today I went to the fair, the Craft & Quilt Fair in Launceston! The last few years it has been in Hobart, and I wasn't at all keen the last time I went, and decided I wouldn't bother going again, but being in Lonnie, I decided to give it one last go.... And, I am SO glad I did! It was totally awesome!

I went with my 2 lovely, creative sisters-in-law! Judy the paper craft extraordinaire (she makes the most beautiful cards and is a Stampin Up demonstrator - if you are interested in a party in the Tas send me a message and I will put you in touch with her, who I might add is going to get a blog happening soon too!) and Roseanne my sewing buddy!

The Silverdome was looking great:

There was some beautiful quilts on display too, and I managed to take a couple of pics of my favourites..... Check this one out! Awesome hey! Raw edge applique and paint/pencils:

And for all those Dear Jane lovers, there was a finished one there! Beautiful in the flesh I must say!

And, I also came across this hexagon quilt:

I thought my Hexie buddies would like to check out the way this was constructed:

I did make a few purchases, and I shall pop back tomorrow and show you all then.

Actually, I have heaps to show you! I am now using my 'new' laptop (it is about 6 months old) and I have finally got everything swapped over from my old one, and finding my feet is testing! I will get there!

See you all tomorrow!
