A few things to show you

It was off to the Craft Fair in Melbourne yesterday for me as Fee and Jo organised to have a few blogging buddies meet up at lunch time. It was so good to see Fee again and give her big hugs and also so good to meet Jo. Jo is everything I thought she would be….truly lovely! and she is 3/4 of an inch shorter than me lol. I thought I was the only tall blogger out there.

Also met up with Kerri who is lovely too. Finally got to meet up with Miriam…we have been chatting in emails for a while now and it was great to put a face to each other.

Was also great to meet up with Gail again too.

I only got the one photo so you all will have to wait until Jo and Fee and the others put their piccies up.

Here is Kerri, me, Jo and Fee

I got a few things…not much really but had lots of fun looking at all the yumminess at the fair.

Some gorgeous lace and linen and big ric rac. I love lace but hardly wear it so have decided to make something to wear out of some of this lace. I think I was living in the Victorian era in a previous life and had it on my dresses then.

I had a bit of a spend up a little while ago and my order finally arrived ….Mmmm yummm. My little brain is working overtime thinking of what to do with all this lot.

I am using the fabric ‘Swell’ by Urban Chicks‘ and I am not sure but I think I might run out…..so is there anyone out there who has a Jelly Roll or a couple of Charm Packs of this fabric they would like to sell? I have searched fabric stores and no one has it. Please email me at tozzie1 at Gmail dot com. Thanks so much.

And finally…….

I fell in love with this darling table cloth at the Op Shop and so I had to have it…it was only $2.00….Bargain as there isn't anything wrong with it. Now I can bring out my favourite cups and saucers and have ‘High Tea’ when visitors arrive.

I hope that you had a wonderful time at the Craft Fair in Melbourne too if you went or are going as its on until tomorrow too. Wear comfy shoes because your feet will be very sore from walking up and down all the isles ….but we don't worry about that while we are having this fun.

hugs to all ……

It was great to meet you on Friday Vicki. :)

Hi Vickie......I have a fair amount of yardage of 'Swell'.....about 12 different prints I think....it is buried in my stash. I've tried to email you from your profile page but I am not able to get your email address. I've never had this happen before. If you are still in need of Swell send me your email address and I'll let you know what I have.....we can do a swap if that works for you. The graphics of the girls hugging is so darn cute........looking forward to hearing from you. Pauline
