A bit of everything

My Mum and I had a wonderful day together on Wednesday. We spent some time at the Stitches and Craft show which was a wonderful event although I did feel a little let down by a lot of the usual retailers not being there. As you know I had my list ready.....and I was only able to buy one thing on it. I did buy some other stuff too though!!
A lot of retailers, apparently, decided to go to Sydney instead of Melbourne. I guess in economic times they had to choose.....
But it was wonderful to see so many "bloggy" stalls and bloggy friends. Jodie's stall looked amazing and it was fantastic to see so many of her selvedge creations on centre stage!
Mum and I also had lunch with Rachel. All in all it was a really lovely day.
The finished pin cushions available in my Esty shop. The one in the middle has already sold.
And little master 6 with his new Essendon coloured glasses.
They are just for reading and working so he doesn't have to wear them all the time which I am grateful for. A few children in his class have glasses (and his teacher) so he didn't feel too self conscious on his first day with them.
A few awards have been passed my way too...more on that another day.
Hope you all have a great weekend and if you are going to the "show" have a great time!

Love those cute little pin cushions Kathryn! Sounds like you had a great day out with your Mum. Master 6 looks brilliant! My son just had a check up today and he needs glasses too! He's not very happy about it though.
Best wishes,
