Expo shopping...............

Thanks to everyone for your comments on my last 2 posts............I have read them all but bloggers is not happy and not emailing me my comments so I cannot reply but thanks so much for all the wonderful comments about fairy girls dress........she loves it..........
.............now I have the expo shopping.........
My favourite shop at the expo - Cottage on the Hill..........(is that cool ribbon or what).....I got a bundle of Maderia fabrics - love the colours of this range.......also brought a couple more fat quarters and some green chennile and pom poms for a bag (I think) - see next picture with Natalie Ross pattern......
Anni Downs A Christmas Story............I have looked at this before but decided it had to come home with me............
Also purchased at Cottage on the Hill this bag pattern by Natalie Ross - Isabella's Day Out.............Kerry also had Natalie's new block of the month quilt which you can see her post here............I saw it on her blog but to see it in real life was great as it looks fab and I think I am going to do this block of the month (if only I can keep up with it)..............contact Kerry if you are interested in doing the block of the month............she said she would be running it starting soon..............
.........some chooks cards I just had to have..........
.....the bag in the bottom left is called Ric Rac and Blooms and is by The Riven Collection - Sally Giblin - cute little stitchery on this one and the colours were so pretty I just brought the kit............didn't realise until I got home but I also received a bonus stitchery - yippee.......I have started the stitching on this..........
Bottom right are "kit in a card" (have I got that right Janet) and they are from Wildcraft Farm - great cards with a little project stuck in the card.
Janet is also doing Christmas Surprises this year so if hubby wants to get you something or you have a friend you want to buy a sewing /homey present for head over and make sure you tell Janet I sent you over...............money made is going to charity................hurry email Janet by 31st October - this is available to overseas people also........
The Amy Butler fat quarters in this pic were all $2/fat quarter - bargain - so I HAD to buy some................the quilt hangers were from a new business and will be available online............email me if you want more info
Finally shopping at Spotlight...........the bright pink and greens for some kids projects............collections of fat quarters were a bargain so had to have some (yes I know more blue and green)................the green on the bottom left was also a bargain so I brought what was left on the roll................and the paisley on the bottom right was just because I loved it...............
..........take care........

  5. You must have a bad back from carrying that haul. I just bought Anni Downs a Xmas story it has soooo many good patterns. Now we will have to wait and see all the finished items.

  6. Wow oh wow!!! You really did do a hell of a lot of shopping... I thought I was bad, but you really put the icing on the cake. At least this should keep you busy until your next adventure to the big smoke.
    Abby and I both booked for the trip to Nundle, how exciting!!

  8. That’s some bounty!! So many different things and fabrics but all real ChookyBlue’s! Amy Butler $ 2,0?
    Fabrics are soooo expensive here, and we almost never have good bargains at shops. It would be very dangerous for me to live near your wonderful fabrics shops!

  14. It sounds like the Patchwork and Needlecraft Expo was lots of fun. You bought so many nice things and caught up with so many friends. I wish that the other side of the world wasn't so far away.

  20. It was great to meet you in person. The craft show was great.Didn't buy quite as much as you,but did my fair share for the economy.Hopefully we will see some finished items made with your purchases. I have made another bag and almost finished my secret santa.

  23. WOOHOO! Chooky, you did do some fab shopping and it isn't even Christmas yet. So glad you like my BOM and got yourself a bag pattern too I see..Thankyou. You will enjoy making that one. Hopefully we will get some rain soon. It always seems nicer to sew when it's raining than when it's stinking hot! Happy Stitchin'
