Craft Fair Shopping

After and while I was working on the BeBe Bold stall I kept seeing things that I just had to have. Jane carries some lovely Japanese crochet books and I kept looking at them. Not sure if I will be able to interpret the graphs (as I certainly can't read the Japanese!) but it might be fun to try. I also bought some fine thread to crochet as well. Brings back memories of crocheting doileys when I was in my 20s! 
 BeBe Bold also has some lovely patterns, fabrics and notions. These just had to come home with me.
 Jane uses this tool to make lines for sashiko. Thought I might need one. Jane had also made a lovely little bag using these apple core papers. It might be fun to make some of these with my Japanese fabrics.
 I showed you some of these fabulous birds that Doreen is making and when I saw this book, I couldn't resist.
 AK Traditions had a lovely stall as well and these dollies are so gorgeous. Little Alice might like one...when she is bigger. The colouring book is gorgeous too and I think I would like to stitch them!
 You can't go to Sydney without buying some goodies from the Hatched and Patched stall. I was quite good really as I could have bought so much. I bought a little kit and Anni's new book for Quiltmania, called The Home Patch. It has so many lovely projects in it.
It all looks quite a lot really. Must get going on my retreat kits so I can have some time to make some of these lovely projects. Lots of fabric being cut, notes almost written and photos taken. It is only 2 weeks till our retreat!
