my day at the show

i have just come back from the stitches and craft show at brisbane...what a great and i went to see what sort of inspiration would hit us, and there was ALOT!! i picked up some great bits and pieces, and after posting here, eating dinner, cleaning up and putting K to bed i am definately going to get sewing (no wonder it takes me forever to finish a project!) i found a wonderful stall packed high with gorgeous fabric, belonging to Amitie Textiles...i have been following her blog for a can check it out here. they were so helpful, really lovely, and their fabric is to die for...hope i didnt leave any drool on your piles of heaven : ) i also managed to get a back issue of Homespun magazine, especially for kids, and inside was a pattern for the Fleur playmat and pillow. i am in love with this and was stoked to find it. absolute bargain...if you like the look of this, check out onegirl designwrks, here is her blog, and her etsy shop...beautiful! i also found a great little stall from some local girls, peppermint stitches. they have a blog and also an online store, but they were super friendly, so definately head on over to Toowong if you are local like me! we had a great day and met some great people. everyone LOVED kalan. i had him in the carrier and he flirted, giggled at chatted to everyone all day long...he is just Divine!
