Fab Sunday fun....

Jo and I were football widows yesterday afternoon because the men had gone to watch Shrewsbury town win at home.  So we had an afternoon of fun at the Quilters exhibition in Shrewsbury.  The hall was filled with the most amazing works of art in Quilt form and there were several trade stands around the hall too....so you just have to buy don't you?

I though you might like to see a few of the snaps I took while while we were walking round ooing and awing....


 




Think these quilts speak for themselves.....aren't they stunning?.....and these were just a few of them.  Jo took some snaps too so you may get to see others on her blog at some point.

These are the new buys I picked up from Batiks n Beads stand.  I could have bought a lot more but you know what it's like girls...A girl can only stroke so many new crafty buys can't she?  I have a feeling it will we be while til I can bring myself to cut into it  :-)  I may just have to go to their web site and buy some more  :-)


Fab dyed felts and randomly dyed threads.  Jo bought other colours so I'm pretty sure we will be sharing our new buys.  :-)

Don't we always?  :-)

Just imagine all the work going into those beautiful works of art (and worse all the cutting out!)

These are beautiful - the hot air balloon is like stained glass. Gorgeous.

Love the fabric you bought and have to say the quilts are amazing. Never done patchwork and it is on my list of 'must try'. One day maybe.

Clarice Cliff-my favourite! Went to Wedgewood once to see the real thing in the Museum- Bizarre range is still my favourite and the cafe was fab!! I have been knitting a shawlette which is finished and now started a log cabin blanket fro Sylecraft Vision yarn. Had to stop on Sunday 'cause the tears were blinding me during Downton-never used to be soppy!!

Lots of inspiration there! I love the chicken quilt - and the one with the balloon - perhaps I could make one with a chicken enjoying a ride in a balloon ...?
But not yet! I've got a picture to paint first, and a novel to finish ...
