I finally gave in to Mug Rugs and made this little Tis The Season stitchery into one last week.
How did everyone else go this month with an item ready for Christmas? It's a great feeling to know that my handmade goodies are ready and waiting to go to their new homes or decorate my home this Christmas. This challenge has been made all the more enjoyable for me knowing crafty elves are sewing along together ... thankyou :o)
On Saturday my alarm went off at 3.45am to travel by bus to Brisbane for the Craft and Quilt Exhibition. We had a great day made all the more special because I got to meet up with Jeanette. After a lovely chat over a coffee, we went our separate ways to browse, buy, and oooh and aaaah over all the gorgeous quilts.
I was very good and only bought a couple of things although there is always that item you didn't buy but wished you had. Guess I'll just have to go back again next year. This glittery ball of red wool with metalic should make me two scarves ... I'm hooked on scarves.
Mum and I had hoped to attend the workshop for this little Japanese purse but it had filled quick smart so the kit came home with me. I bought another clasp incase I make a second and also bought a couple of fat 1/4's.
On the way down we stopped at a park in Gympie for a quick breakfast where this swan family was also enjoying some breakfast.
Arriving home after 10.30pm we had a quick cuppa, a little show and tell and crawled into bed just after midnight. Phew! But well worth it!
There's much to do in the garden ... can you see the busy buzzy bee?
