It was a great time. Lots of fun local arts and crafts. It turned out that I didn't buy much, but there were lots of excellent choices. Hammerpress was there with all sorts of beautiful cards, there was lots of jewelry, as well has hand-crafted sewing projects.
As you can see from the photos above, we also got to stop by at a modern quilt show at a shop down the street called Bon Bon (which is super-cute, by the way). I loved so many of the quilts. Some of them even looked do-able, so now I have the quilt bug. Especially for the one in the third quilt picture--it is bluish and orangish. It is made with Heather Ross's super-cute Mendocino fabrics. What I loved about it was the simplicity--the piecing all looked pretty darn easy. The cutest part about it, though, was that it was quilted with waves. Perfect for an oceanic little quilt. I think it was intended for a baby. It had a name embroidered down at the bottom. Made me want to get on it and make a quilt for my new little niece or nephew! Of course, that won't be happening.
I have a half made shirt just waiting for me. My plan is to finish it before I go back to school (only 5 more days, yech!). It's called the Schoolhouse Tunic. My sis has made two of them, so I decided to attempt it. We'll see if I ever finish it. It is hard to get the motivation to get everything out of the closet and onto the kitchen table to sew. Oh, the luxury of having space for such things! Here's the shirt--here's hoping I can finish it without any help!
