The show (again)

Ahh, the staple for any show or market- the corn cob! And at $5, was definitely savoured and enjoyed by 2 people (I love the cry- "Mum, you finish it!").

As we were driving back to the Stitches and Craft Show today, Little Miss "I'm a big girl" in the back asked when she would get her own blog. She has learnt this week that 'www' means a website- I am constantly being told things have a website now, whenever she sees the "www". So I said until she can read and type, she can share my blog, and therefore the next 2 photos are dedicated to her (as if I wouldn't have shown them anyway!)

A new craft- sand art. She wasn't happy about it being taken home, wanting to do it at the show, but a stern talking to has seen her very happy with my decision, and she has finished this one off tonight. Not much mess, no, don't worry, I was vacuuming anyway!

We also bought this little beading kit ($5) to make bracelets etc. My beads are all a bit small, I thought this was more 5 yr old size. Or maybe I'll make them for me!

For little Hugo, a quilt of VERY divine fabrics, and very expensive for me- I so rarely buy new and special quilting fabrics, this was quite a treat. I have already decided where the scraps will go!

The delightful girls at these stores helped me out, they were definitely my cup of tea, and a brilliant addition to me sewing room (for a short while!)
