CREATIVA

I was there!
It was crammed like every year but we (a dear friend and I) went there early and so we could see a lot (at the beginning anyway!). I took pictures of two shops I like a lot: the first is a German local fabric maker called Westfalenstoffe who makes very nice fabrics especially for kids.
The second picture is of my LQS Quiltcabin (Hello Ursel!).











I did buy some stuff! Have I already told you that I like brown?!
I found some nice japanese fabrics, two japanese magazines I had to have, some rayon threads and some nice ribbons. I also bought knitting wool for socks, next winter will come some time!

All in all it was a very nice day.

I'm looking forward seeing what you will have done with these fabrics. I too love the Japanese books with bags.

A day spent with a friend is very special indeed. Looks like a great place to spend time together.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I tried to reply but it didn't work. You to are a new blogger like myself. Like what you have put on so far. Have bookmarked you so I can look in and see what you have done. Not sure when I will start Nearly Insane but if wil hopefully be in the next few months.

Sounds like a perfect day!

Ahhh yes, that looks like the Stitches & Craft Show we have over here that travels round Australia. A great day but you are oh so tired by the end. But it's a happy tired (with a sad purse!!)

Thank you for showing us this pictures. The pic from the "Quiltcabin" put me in mind of the fabric I bought at their stand (one year ago) in South-Germany (was ist in Saulgau?). The fabric is from Australia and I want to make a quilt for my eldest son. It's full of bugs, grubs and ants - he loves all those small animals :-)) I think as soon as I finish the Hexagons, I will make his quilt! Thanks again for the reminder - and for the nice comments you leave on my blog!
