My Pickings


......from the craft fair. It seems to me that every year the number of quilt stalls gets higher and the number of other stalls dimishes. Being a fair distance away, it isn't financially viable for a lot of the businesses from the eastern states to make the journey over here, so we have a lot less stalls than the fairs over there. That said, I did have a nice time, but bought little in the way of stitching supplies. Since Stitches and Spice wasn't in Adelaide this year there was just about no threads or fabric. I did find some yarn (sock yarn + some extremely soft baby alpaca) & Addi Turbo circular needles as well as some stitcheries, and other bits and bobs. Since I have also put in an order with Bendigo yarns, and am still looking for fabric & thread for Paradigm Lost, I am quite happy with my haul, but I did miss rummaging through Naomi's fabrics and threads.......

This weekend is loking fairly clear at the moment (other than the Adelaide Christmas Pageant tomorrow morning) but Christmas is getting nearer and that means bbqs, concerts, dinners, etc, etc and Ron is away for work for about 10 days in a couple of weeks so I guess we should enjoy the peace time at home while we can!

I am off to have a bite of lunch and settle down with "Bones" to stitch some Celtic Autumn.

A shame Naomi wasn't there this time, but you managed to get a decent little stash haul :)
