Last weekend was the Quilt and Craft show at Darling Harbour, tres excitement for the crafty ones in Sydney! Mrs Bendi came down from QLD and braved the cold weather for it. We had a great day at the show with Al, Brown Pants and the Bendi's. Below are some of the goodies that Shazmina made off with!
Bendigo Woolen Mills: Not a great photo, but I picked up some lavender 12 ply wool/Mohair to make a Jo Sharp cardigan for Mrs Bendi. Didnt have the heart to tell her about my condition (ADD) and the likelihood of her receiving said cardigan in next year! The moss green 8ply cotton is for another Jo Sharp cardigan pattern and I think I will knit it in spring/summer, might make a nice light weight project.
Hot Possum purchase: Mrs Bendi purchased the pattern and some Amy Butler Fat Quaters for Shazmina's Xmas present. I need to find some more fat quaters (love that term), material for backing and edging and then put Mrs Bendi to work!
After the quilt show Mrs Bendi gave Brown Pants a quilting tutorial. She was abit worried as Brown Pants was getting sicker by the minute, but all went well. Mrs Bendi is very Happy to bring another quilting convert into the fold!
Kaalund yarns purchase: And finally something I bought for myself. This yarn is beautifully hand dyed in Australia (Brisvegas) and the photos truly dont do them justice. They base their colours on the Australian bush, on the left is wisteria which is blue/green and purple and on the right is waterlily which is blue, green, purple and pink. It is a bulky weight, so I am going to make a beanie and maybe a scarf, havent quite decided yet.
So that is my haul from the craft show! Oh, I nearly forgot that I bought some circular needles as well.
Now if I could just complete some projects, all would be well! :)
