Quilt & Craft show

Fortunately the show was held in a big hall as it rained most of the day. My lovely friend Maree picked me up & i had a nice time wandering around looking & buying.  Some very lovely quilt & crafts on display but guess what? I forgot my camera. :( . Stalls were set up around the walls for the buying pleasure of attendees. First off i visited Judy's stall. Lots of lovely fabrics on display & fortunately she had some of the fabric there i needed for the sashing in Lisa's Hearts Bom.
Lovely pink with spots from the same range i bought for the heart applique.
I found some lovely Civil War & Reproduction fabrics on Judy's stall.
A visit to Nikki Tervo's stall found me buying bags of buttons & some of Nikki's gorgeous patterns. The white buttons are for the Heart Bom, the holly to decorate some Christmas gifts & i'm always needing the tiny buttons for projects.
This stitchers companion by Nikki came with the buttons supplied.
Just love teapots. :)
Couldn't resist this stitchery either( buttons supplied). Also have another pattern but unfortunately Nikki didn't have them on the stall so i'm having it posted to me. :) Nikki was telling us she has now opened a shop.
Spotted this thread catcher on the stall who was there to raise funds for a ward at the local hospital. Now i know i could've made this myself but there was another reason for buying - it contained fudge. lol. When i got home i put it on the ironing board & my kids discovered it there next to the cat. Can you see where this is going?
Yep the cat now has a crown. The amazing thing is he sat there for ages with it on.
