Oh dear , It's Favourite Things Friday and I'm late !
I've been doing one of my Favourite Things.
I've been to the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair with some girlfriends.
This huge Fair is held in the Brisbane Convention Centre over five days. I have been going to see it all for three years now. It's one of my retirement pleasures..........
........and oh, oh , oh the beautiful things there are to see
Lots of beautiful quilts to see.... ideas and patterns and kits !
Paper crafts , lovely papers, tools, new techniques and gadgets for sale.
Amazing textile artwork on display.
Ideas so simple but so effective to copy, like this lovely tablerunner or wall hanging.
and WOW look at this lovely ribbon embroidery!
One of my purchases was some blue and yellow silk ribbon so,
if I can remember how,
I can make a pretty blue and yellow embroidered wall hanging for my bedroom wall.
Quilting ideas and equipment were everywhere.
It was great to see lots of schoolgirls there too,
taking part in workshops, keenly interested in all that was going on.
Then off to lunch,
in very pleasant surroundings.
A much needed break ....
...... before we headed back inside to look at the quilts.
This is a small taste.....
I'll show you some absolutely fabulous ones tomorrow.
Why not come and join in FTF with the fabulous Mrs Pyjamas?
