Today I escaped my booth and walked ONE short aisle of quiltmarket
There is just so much to see, and I promise there will be more. I am going early tomorrow to have a wander before the show opens.
I was beyond excited to see Lisa of the Red Thread represented so well. (can't figure out how to link could someone add it in the comments for me). Her Hello Tokyo range looks great ! Lisa and I met at Stitches and Craft many moons ago when we were neighbours. Her work is delightful and she is worth following on any and all forms of social media.
Famous Folk 3: Met Bari J last night and had a great chat. She is lovely of course and this morning I saw her sweeping her booth floor. ( See... sweeping her own booth, can't get much more real than that). I wanted to take a sneaky photo but you know I'm too professional .
Famous Folk 4 : I was walking along and saw a man and he seemed familiar so I smiled a vague smile and thought "oh he must be a dad from school" ...... dad ? oh that was quiltdad !!!!! So I did a quick about face and walked past again just to be sure. Then I raced back to the booth to tell Jemma who replied "quiltdad hey, so I guess he is some dad who makes quilts?"
My daughter is a craft heathen.
Weird stuff 2 : The light switches are the opposite to Australia so everytime I leave a room I turn the lights on ! It's quite dementing.
