Day After Craft Fair

I made it to the craft fair yesterday although I didn't really get to stay quite long enough. I was on a bit of a time schedule as I had to be back to help with Cafe Church. I ended up going with my lovely mum which was really great as we haven't been able to spend much time together lately. I only made a few purchases ....
I bought this lovely pattern for a Quilters Pocket from Blue Willow Cottage. I also bought some pretty Ric rac and three lots of cute buttons. I am looking forward to using all of these items. Unfortunately I didn't get to buy any fabric as I ran out of time. I did get to meet the lovely Sarah from Quilt Fabric Delights. It is really quite strange to meet people in real life that you read all about in blogland, you feel as though you have already met before as you have been reading all about their lives over a long (or short) period of time.

On another note, I have joined a one on one Christmas swap with Janet from Wildcraft Farm. She was so busy with life that she didn't get to sign up for the Secret Santa Swap held by Chooky Blue this year so sent a call out for someone to swap with her. As I didn't get to sign up either (I thought about it for too long and left it too late) I volunteered to swap with her. It seems that she had a few responses so she will now be very busy. I am looking forward to sending off some special gifts to her and hope that she likes them.
