Craft Expo and Other Fabric Finds!


I'm on the countdown still, two weeks to go till i'm working on Selkie Smith Creations full time! So i've been busy making bags and going to work 4 days a week.. All is well though, and I'm very happy with the bag i'm currently making. I'm using Alexander Henry's Inked Girls in Multi. I really happy with the placement. Hopefully the owner of this bag will be pleased too.

Anywhoo what i actually came to write about was the Craft Expo that I went to with the lovely Laura on Saturday. I didn't expect to come away with anything, as I knew it was not the same as the stitches and craft show, but yes, I ended up buying some fabric, a bit more to add to my Japanese Fabric stock, some great Michael Miller Metallic Dot Fabric (at a steal..will make super purse linings and exteriors) a great book, and some "power scissors"... The one thing I dislike about sewing is the cutting. I'm left handed and even though I possess a pair of left handed scissors and a rotary cutter I can still butcher the fabric. Anywhoo I love my power scissors because they can cut through interfacing like butter. Eight Layers of fabric apparently... so all in a bit of a spend up yet again!

Then on Sunday I popped into one of my local fabric shops, just to take a squizz (i usually buy my fabric online) and was super suprised that the shop (Fred the Needle) has some fantastic bolts of Michael Miller Retro Fabrics, which I haven't seen online. I love all retro and especially the Domestic 50's looking prints. I'm particularly stoked to find "How to keep a Husband" as now I have both that and "How to get a Husband" Still thinking about what i'm going to use that fabric for..

Ok, I probably bored you all silly by now. So i'll sign off, and have taken pics of my new finds! oh and the bag.
