My first order of business was at The Patchwork Apple to get my copy of Cotton Floss signed by Natalie of Cinderberry Stitches. Natalie is a lovely lady and I'm so glad I got to chat to her and was rather chuffed when she recognised my name from commenting on her blog and Facebook!
But..... on the way to visit Natalie, I went past the Cutting Art stand and picked myself up this little baby:
I can't remember what order I did the rest of the day, but here is what I brought home.
You Sew Girl by Nicole Mallalieu Designs, and a bag pattern. I'd decided I'd buy the book if it had a bag pattern I wanted. Looking through the book, and the bags on display, I chose a different pattern but decided I'd still get the book, mainly because of the petal hat! (it's the third photo on this page). I was also lucky enough to get this booked signed.
Some fat quarters from Serenity Glen Patchworx (just because)
and some spray starch so I can have a go at hand sewn applique (namely the most recent block in the Desperate Housewife's Quilt-as-you-wish-along), plus some Aurifil thread to have a play with it.
Oh, and I keep forgetting (so much that I forgot to take a photo) that I also got some indigo cloth and sashiko needles from Indigo Niche so I can make a start on the sashiko panel I bought this time last year.
That doesn't feel like a lot for a craft show, but of course I am going back tomorrow! Although I don't think tomorrow's purchases will be quite so exciting.
