In all Fairness

So i went to my first big craft fair with my friend Laural, who is a great person to with! I found some great things, and found some inspirations for projects and presents in the near future. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait to see some of my creations because i don't want the recipients to see them here first! We weren't allowed to take pictures there, but i have to share these great finds!

First, some great fabrics for quilts and more:

I also found a bunch of great buttons and more for $2.99! Notice the cute kitten buttons and belt loops.

And, while i didn't get this at the fair, a big welcome to Martha, who will be a great asset to our family (thanks Laural). I already put her to work by making a pouch filled with sewing notion for a friend who's moving overseas. And, since she might need a pin cushion too, i made this pin cushion (inspired by Bella Dia's amazing world of cushions).

I'm in full craft work mode - knitting a new poncho for myself, a gift for someone else, and am looking at on-line vegan yarn sources for a new hat. Besides knitting, i'm working on my Tie One On apron, another gift, and getting ready for my Hallowe'en extravaganza! Wish me luck...

i've thought about going to that show in previous years but nixed the idea because i started worrying it would be a bit "country craft" if you know what i mean. i'm glad i was wrong. looks like you got some great stuff. that fabric is so pretty (love the blue one with small print best).
