Craft Fair

My best friend and I have a little tradition of attending the local craft fair together each year. Each of my children have come along as babies and this past weekend it was baby L's turn. She was an awesome craft show companion. She managed to have two sleeps and when she was awake she was happy taking in all the sights. It was lovely wandering around all day with her in the carrier.

Here are a few pictures of the goodies that I bought home with me

Hand dyed wool felt, tiny glass jars with cork stoppers and acrylic? flowers

English paper piecing templates, a triangle quilting template and a toadstool stitchery

Washi tape, robot stamp,  liquid pearls, paper flowers and a new paper quilting pattern

A bit of variety that should have me happily creating as time permits. English paper piecing is new to me - something that I gave admired on other blogs. I have vision of my little girls in summer dresses embellished with hexagons and maybe even a dolly quilt. The paper quilt will be perfect for the three little boys that were recently born and who I want to give a little handmade something to. Now if only I could get an extra hour or two a day . . .
