Oh, I forgot to show you......

Oh, I forgot to show you my purchases from the Sydney Craft Fair (thanks Annie for reminding me!!).

I was another lurker around Anni's gorgeous stall.  It was lovely to see the originals up close!  I could not resist purchasing her new range fat eight bundle..... Not sure what I will make just yet lol!  I also purchased some linen, a little purse kit and the turtle pincushion (which I noticed is VERY popular with the blogger group lol).  All from Hatched and Patched:



And, I was another who could not resist the fat quarters on the GORGEOUS cards!  I know another gimmick to make you buy.... and it worked!  I also purchased some magnetic clasps, more FQ's (so much for not buying fabric...... I have too much as it is!) and a pattern from Marg Low's stall (which looked awesome I might add!), and a glasses case kit which will be made up as a Christmas Gift (well, that's the plan!)


On the Friday, Christine and Myself decided to participate in Marg Low's little demo on making this completely hand sewn needlecase.  I was quite happy that I did all the flower in the lesson.  I have since managed to get the backing ready to hand stitch down, and sew around the felt 'page'.....


I might finish it off tonight....
