Fun at the craft show

Yesterday i spent a wonderful day at the craft show with my friend Cindy(no blog). First up we wandered all the lovely stalls & bent our cards a little then it was time for a fortifying cup of coffee & carrot cake & back to browsing & spending.
My haul of goodies. Lovely Natalie Bird was on her stall & signed her new pattern book for me. :)
I also picked up this show special(photo taken from Horn web site), the sewing table. It also comes with a free insert.

 After lunch Cindy & i wandered around the fabulous quilt display. Oh some very stunning quilts there including a hexagon quilt. King sized made up of 1/2" hexagons. The tag said "thousands" of the hexagons. Last time i saw this particular quilt the maker had finished the centre which is a beautiful rose & was working her way out from it. I'm so glad i got to see the finished quilt. Now it was time to head home with our goodies, sore feet & dented bank accounts but before we left i picked up 1 last show special.
I've been wanting one of these for a while & at the show price i wasn't leaving it behind.

Happy Stitching,

I see you also collected Na;aie's new book - those light pads are great - a shame I only bought a new one a few years back - probably one show before those new ones came out. Some other lovely goodies too.

Great purchases there! The Somerset Designs pattern looks interesting...

You did very well with your goodies. I recently bought those type of quilting stencils, have yet to use them though. I bought the white pounce and so far the only quilting I have done is on light backgrounds. I need to buy one of the coloured ones as well, I think.
