We started with this, a 2 x 3 metre space . . .

and transformed it into this . . . now after looking at this photo, yes perhaps if given the chance I may do a quick shuffle around of things, I know I would definitely remove the ‘dark’ piece of fabric from our wallpapered wall, if time permits tomorrow it will most certainly vanish!

We began by hanging the quilt tops, yes tops only, no time to quilt, then wallpapered the other wall with fabric.

I went for black gingham for the tables this year, just for a change.

Our crochet kits were unpacked next. The ‘Granny Squares’ kit is perfect for anyone just starting out, with instructions for the basic granny, stitch diagrams, hook, yarn and needle, you’ll be crocheting in an instant!

Oh here’s Mabel resting on the red chair, kits are available, email if you’d like a kit set aside, the PDF pattern will be launched in the next few days and hard colour copies are available at the Show.

On the wall in this photo is a quilt I’ve called ‘One Way to LA’. I enjoyed whipping up both the quilts, utilizing a plain simple shape, creating different formations.

We have a light sprinkling of vintage chenille this year.

I dumped the Squiggles blanket on top of the wool, it just sings out touch me touch me don’t you think, squish me, so we left it down for anyone who feels so inclined and plus it’s also quite heavy so the chances of it hanging were quite slim! Kits are available upon request.

And last but not least there’s wool, in all colours of the rainbow.

OK I best get some sleep, I’m looking forward to tomorrow! Swing by and say hello if you’re in the neighborhood!
