Fibre Arts

This is a little notice for all who live in Nelson and Motueka/Marlborough (maybe even Wellington) and read my blog.
On Sunday some friends and myself are having a market selling fabrics, yarns, books and crafty items from our stashes. Fabrics and wool will be coming out of their secret hiding places from under the beds, wardrobes and drawers in spare bedrooms, cupboards and (in my case) from under window seats. It is going to be a fun day and I am wondering if I shall be taking home more than I arrived with !!!
I shall try to be good, and stay focused on all the knitting and quilting that I have yet to finish this year.The fruit salad quilts for the granddaughters have come to an impasse, and I have several more weeks of quilting to do on Tristan and Sylvia's quilt, and Melissa's. I daren't confess to all the knitting projects that I have on the go at the moment, but that just seems to be how I work the best. Are any of you the same ?

Yes, I almost always have several projects going at once. I have said many times that I need to make a quilt of my unfinished projects. It would tell the story of my life. lol.

I would love it if there were such a market here! I plunder through the local thrift stores in search of vintage fabrics on a regular basis. It is rare to find something, but occasionally I do

I was going to ask you where it was. As usual I have a very busy weekend planned but I am going to try and make it over for a look, :) because I just cant resist stocking up on sewing supplies.

Are you paying over $5 / pack of cigarettes? I buy all my cigarettes from Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 50% from cigs.
