On Sunday Mum and I went to the Quilt and Craft fair in Hamilton as we do every year. It was full of inspiring new ideas, notions and gadgets and its always good to see things in the flesh isn't it. I did a lot of admiring of the pretty fabrics, came very close to buying some Echino fabrics that I'd only seen online until then but I was extremely restrained and bought zilch. The reason being that my DH will be bringing some back from the US with him soon so couldn't really justify buying more now could I? I did enjoy looking at the lovely quilts on display and there was quite a few of them this time. Unlike last year I took not one single photo. There were no signs up saying no photography but I only saw one person taking photos. Last year when I was snapping away an older lady came up to me and asked if I was allowed to take photos and I replied that yes I was. Now I'm not so sure what the etiquette is about taking photos at a show when there are no signs saying not to. I'm interested to know what everyone else thinks about this issue??
While in Hamilton though we did have time to visit Spotlight and I found some more wool in different colours for my crochet project. The best bit was they were half the price I normally pay at my local craft shop!! Gotta love a bargain!
And look my pile of squares is getting bigger!
By the way if you live in or near Christchurch I highly recommend going to The Quilt and Craft show this weekend even if it is to just look and get inspired!
