Fine Food and Craft.......




What a busy weekend I have had.  Thursday night sees the opening of the Pittsworth Craft and Find Food Spectacular at which I have a stall booked.



The quality of the pics is a bit dodgy, but hopefully you can see what I have been up to.  I love the magnets pictures above.  They are a huge button covered with vintage doiley pieces.  I hope the customers love them too.   I really enjoyed making the "Vintage Pillowcase Dresses" too.  So much fun.  I just wish my Alexandra was little enough to wear one.




These little pushpins too were heaps of fun to make.  I used "Hannah Bella" fabric for them.  On Friday night I had such fun making the packaging for my goods.  I hope they look OK!



I finished stitching at 11 last night.  I had bought fabric to make another 10 "Le Jardin" Gardening Aprons and then got my job.  So the aprons had been on hold.  There are another few things I did have planned, but not sure if they will get done before Thursday or not.  Back to school and a very busy week for everyone.

If you live on the Darling Downs or in Toowoomba  (or further afield) it will be really worth a drive to Pittsworth (about 25 minutes from Toowoomba) this weekend.  The Craft and Fine Food Spectacular is always a great visit and the weekend will see the local garden competition and also an Australian Open Garden as well.   

Best get on with the morning now and get to work.

Hi Leisa,
I just visited your stall at the craft show and loved your creations - I bought a lovely bag for a friend. You do some beautiful sewing! I nearly bought some buntings for my little girl but finds prohibited...

Hope you make some good sales!
