Craft Show 2013

When I listed my goals for this month, there was one extra goal......a visit to the Craft Show. Don't say I didn't warn you!!

It was a little adventure for me.  I took the day off work and caught the train into the city.

There were a couple of exhibits to view.  I wish I had taken more photos of these amazing dresses which were made by young textile designers.

Then I went off to stroll among the Quilt exhibition.  The Qld Quilters Guild have a challenge for their members every year.  They are given a piece of fabric and, with a few rules, create a quilt which has to include a bit or a lot of the fabric.  It amazes me how very different they all are.  These are some of my favourites.
 This is the fabric that was the inspiration for these quilters
I did of course spend some money but not on my quilting machine.....I will have to wait a little longer for my belated birthday present.

Well I tried to keep this short and sweet and not bombard you with too many photos.  I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into this years Brisbane Stitches and Craft Show.

Don't forget to see how you can take part in my GIVEAWAY which is happening all year. Click on the GIVEAWAY button on the sidebar or go to the page by clicking on the tab up top.
