Stitches & Craft Show - Sydney 2009
The glory days of the show are gone but there were still plenty of good things to see.
Catharina's Country Collection was a terrific stall with a fantastic display of quilts - especially her BOMs. This one is Pond House by Lynette Anderson.
They were one of only a handful of quilt stalls this time. That's because the quilt show is the big event in June.
For me, the top floor held all the surprises - Cloth Fabric, Kristen Doran, Ink & Spindle, Pippiejoe, Audrey & Maude - just to name a few. It was fabulous to see Tara Badcock's tea cosies - so much better *in person*.
I bought some fabrics from Ink & Spindle which I will probably use to make some bags
and some cards from Pippijoe that I plan to use for Christmas. She also had fantastic fabrics.
I saw the platypus designed by Kate from Two Little Banshees . The pattern was featured in Australian Homespun Vol 10 No 1. These are my version made for Jen's new baby Tamsyn after she posted on her blog about how much she enjoys seeing the platypus that live on the creek near her mum's house.
Kate's new design is a cute-as-a-button caterpillar!
Have a super weekend
