I went to the Craft Fair child free on Friday. After a rotten week battling tonsilitis hanging out with crafty friends and a bit of retail therapy was just what the doctor ordered.
I enjoyed it more than previous years. There were some new stallholders and quite a lot more wool craft than before. I came home with a few modest purchases.
A gorgeous little bunny pattern from the girls at Under The Mulberry Tree. A pattern and yarn to make a crocheted top for Maddie. An equilateral triangle ruler for making strippy quilts. And this Noro book which will work perfectly for homespun yarn.
Yesterday I managed to finish my second butterfly hat. I love the colour. It was to be a Christmas present for my MIL but it is too big for her little head so I am claiming it.
I am spinning some lovely fine multi-coloured optim. I can't wait to see it finished.
A pile of books rocked up from book depository today so they will be my Christmas present (I might have had a teensy peek at a few of them but I promise no more than that!)
And I have to buy some fabric online today as I couldn't get it at the Craft Fair (surprisingly no one had precuts this year!) I really LOVE the new Bluebird Park range by Moda (OMG - that denim look blue with red birds - I think I want a dress out of it!!!) and then there is scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille (who I just love!)
All in all, quite a crafty week!
