Sydney craft show twenty sixteen


Early Saturday morning miss S and I headed down to Sydney to see the craft show. It was my first time at the glebe Island venue


I had planned to catch the bus from Central. But Miss S suggested the ferry I was so  glad she did it was really lovely cruising around the harbour


The glebe Island venue, looked small from the outside.... But  it was truly like the tardis




Inspired by Cardygirl I purchased a cross stitch, I have not done one of these for years. So I went small.... It's pretty cute and I m excited to have a go. I purchased this kit from Karen at Linen and Threads and I just want to say how absolutely lovely an experience it was, she was so very very helpful that when I decide to purchase a kit again, I will be contacting Karen.


The rest of my purchases. Some super cute scissors. My red led light...which the scissor man assured me charges faster because it s red.... Lol

Some fabric for my double wedding ring and MSG quilts. Some pounce powder and  binding clips.
I also had a really lovely long chat with Karen from Somerset patchwork. Somerset is always one of
my favourite shops.  She was just so lovely she happily helped me plan my Europe sewing project.  I was also fortunate enough to meet Di Ford who was very friendly and had a bit of a chat with us, happily answered all of Miss S 's questions about hand piecing.

Of course it was all made perfect because I got to have lunch with my gorgeous friend Cristie, who was working on the Bernina stand.

It was a wonderful day made all the better by the joy on my daughter's face.  To share something I enjoy with someone I love and see their joy just fills your heart.

Ciao 

Googy girl

I agree that the ferry ride really adds to the enjoyment of the day. How lovely for you to share it with your daughter too (I am a teeny bit envious). I also had superb and friendly service from both Karen's. Are you doing star a day for your holiday project?

I was inspired after reading your blog post Trish that contacted Karen and said that I learnt of her after reading about it on someone who had visited her at the craft show and said how helpful she was . She has now put a kit together for me. I now wait for me postie to deliver. I too havent done cross stitch for quite sometime, but linen being my favourite medium thought i would like a project to have on standby for when I get a few moments and for when i want another diversion.
