Quilt Show part 2............

Finally back to the quilt show...............
Here is some shopping.............mainly I was looking for a few more blues for my EPP quilt............and surprisingly there were hardly any papers at the show.....and not the size or shape I needed..........For the shops that didn't go you missed out on my business.............There were quite a few that weren't there 2 years ago.............hopefully they will decide to come back.............
but still a black hole for some of a big name Aussie designers.........
But I did my best to show support for the shops that did attend...............

Somerset Patchwork

forgot where I got these.............

Fabrics from the new range Snowbirds..................pretty sure I got this at Appleyard Cottage but can't find it on there website...........
Bits and pieces............

Fairy girl joined in the dancing fun at the start of the day..........this was her prize............

I got the green spot at Fee's Shabby Shack.........Fairy Girl got the pink flamingo at Hatched and Patched

Fairy Girl did a resin jewellery workshop with Beads N Crystals............
I wished I had time to do it too but I didn't..........
She got a few supplies to make something else...........

This is one of the pendants she made the other one included some rice paper.........but I don't have a pic of it............it's my favourite.............
Not sure what stand I got this little zipper purse but I got a few they were a bargain......super cute......

Bags and books from Quiltmania............I got Carolyn Konigs new book.............

Saturday morning heading out from the city we had a stop to Quiltsmith in Annadale..............
A couple of pieces of yardage and backing for Fairy Girls quilt...............
At Spotlight on the way home Fairy Girl found some green chevron that she had been looking for..............
this one is flannel..............
Catch you later

    Sad about your hexie papers. Did you see Wendy from Sugerlane Quilts purchased tools from Spotlight that cut out hexie paper shapes... Looks like a good idea.
