My sisters-in-law and I went up to Brisbane on Saturday for the Craft and Quilt Fair, then spent the rest of the weekend at the Gold Coast and did a bit more shopping at Pacific Fair. It was a great girls weekend away whilst the hubbys stayed and watched the kids (and the indy 600).
We enjoyed the craft fair - there were a lot of lovely fabrics for sale (although prices varied greatly!!) and some beautiful quilts on display too. I went halves in a Little Apples Layer cake with one of my sisters-in-law, and I also bought a few FQ of christmassy fabrics & some more for a black,white and red quilt that I am making soon:
I had been lucky to win some passes to the craft fair from Voodoo Rabbit on facebook a few weeks ago so we made sure to visit their stand at the show as I wanted to pick up some more echino as I had a specific project in mind!
My brother got a kindle for fathers day, and it is his birthday in November so I decided to make him a kindle cover from the echino bicycles as he does triathlons:I found a tutorial the other day on Whip Up for a gadget pouch so I have based the cover off that, and have lined it with some lime felt to make it soft on the inside.
