I went to the Melbourne Stitches and Craft show yesterday. I took my mum and we had heaps of fun. I met heaps of bloggers, so now i can put faces to names, and caught up with some that I met at the last show or during the past year. Even though I've been blogging for 2 years I've only really started the meet and greet in the past year. Just can't wait for Sew It Together next weekend, very excited, can't wait. The show wasn't as big as last year, not as many fabric stalls and craft gadgets that I would have liked. I loved the incubator section though, so much talent there. Each booth was decorated perfectly reflecting the crafter. We didn't get to any talks or labs but we did do some crotchet at the craft bar. I was very restrained in my purchases (saving for SIT), only buying a new subscription to Homespun for myself, and a purse pattern and fabric for my mum for mothers day that she chose (more on that in another post). Mum bought a few patterns and I hope to share what she makes out of those as well.
I finally got to make one of Nikki's bags but I think that deserves a post of it's own, that, and the light is terrible for pictures at the mo.
