Yes, finally confession time.
The above photo shows my purchases from the Sydney Craft Show. Missing is a little clip-on light and 2 bundles of FQs form the Kaffe Fassett collective. I bought mainly tools. I wasn't going to admit to the FQ bundles. I was on my way out the door when I saw them. I picked one bundle, paid and moved on, only to go around the block and go back for the other bundle. In my defence, I did leave the 3rd bundle there! (But only just and I have their card.) They will be put to good use when I start Sue Daley's Square Dance.
As I explained in the last post, Hubby and I just had a lovely 10 day driving holiday. A major highlight was visit to The Home Patch - Anni Downs's delightful store. The stash in the photo above was not all bought at Anni's - just all the left and bottom part. Anni only had one bolt of her own 'My Favourite Things' fabric range left. I also picked up some more linen from her. Shops up here sell the books and patterns that use it but not the fabric.The 3 bright FQs were from Blackheath Patchwork and the 4 other pieces of Anni's fabric were from Tamworth Patchwork (I don't think I have their correct name). My purchases might seem a bit overboard, but it was a treat visit and my birthday, so that's the excuse I'm going with. LOL
I can stop being jealous now of all the Home Patch visits, I read about. If you've never been, love Anni's work and get a chance to go, DO IT. It is not a huge store, but one filled with lots of atmosphere. All the items from the books and patterns are there to see and touch, lots of lovely gift items, heaps of ideas, encouragement and welcome. Bathurst also has lots of other attractions.
