More inspiration…

…was found at The Stiches & Craft Show, last weekend!

Life-size crochet girl was excited to see us… she was part of a “birthday party”-themed installation – together with these guys…

Ooh – and yummy felt party food!

And infamous characters to meet!  From the wondrous world of Ric-Rac, do you recognise Parsley and Beet?

How about Ernst & Pebble

And then of course there’s the infamous “selvedge dress”!  I had a big smile on my face while catching up with Jodie, I went to her “blog talk” and I swear - I could listen to her chat for hours – she’s so funny!

the red thread 

Lisa from The Red Thread neighboured Jodie, and her stall was a bright display filled with beautiful happy faces smiling from every square inch!  I really fell in love with them!  For a closer look, check out this link.

I wish I had more photos to show you… I was too busy ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ and chatting! :-)

If you live in Australia and get the opportunity to attend a Stitches & Craft show, I highly recommend it.  Incredibly well-organised, with an abundance of free activities to participate in; fantastic stalls and stall-holders, and workshops, and displays…I had an absolute ball!

Before I head off, did you know that Jenny is auctioning off her ‘Beauty is Timeless’ cushion?

It is for a fantastic cause.

Right… back to my stitching!  (I do sew sometimes – honest!)

Hugs! Vikki x

I missed it this year (sob). Do you remember last year you had to push me around in the wheelchair. I never felt tired once, can't say the same for you and Anne(LOL).
Love and hugs,
Kerryanne
