I just had to show you some of the goodies I bought at the Arts and Craft Fair yesterday. As I walked into the venue I was overwhelmed by a plethora of tables full of handmade goodness 🙂
My friend Desley from the Redland Spinners and Weavers group makes the most beautiful tote bags. I have featured them before and yesterday I spotted her table straight away as she makes the best bags! Love this one which has a tapestry picture enclosed behind plastic lining. Even the back of the bag looks spectacular.
This is the second rosette bag of Desley’s that I’ve bought. Just love the bright colours and again, the back of the bag looks a treat too.
Here’s a close up picture of those beautiful rosettes.
This little calico tote bag will go to my Mum for Christmas.
Couldn’t resist this cinnamon apple which smells divine!
And I had to claim this cute little penguin.
These ordinary notebooks had lovely embellished covers on them.
This is such a cute idea. It’s a little pocket that you can slip a gift voucher in. I’ll give this to my son at Christmas with a Bunnings voucher in it. He’s a carpenter.
A small canvas print….another gift for my Mum. Mum is so easy to buy for and yet I always have trouble finding gifts for Dad. There’s a limit to how many Sudoku books I can give him!
As soon as I saw this little plaque I felt it was made for me. I’m sure you’d agree too!
I did buy a few extra little goodies but they’ll be Christmas presents for my friends who read this blog so I don’t want to spoil the surprise!
This last bag was bought at a very quaint café/gift shop at Aratula on the way to the scrapbooking retreat last weekend. I couldn’t resist it. My friend Helen also bought a similar one with butterflies on it.
I also had a lovely gathering yesterday at The Artist Tree with my Knit and Knatter friends. I’m nearly half way through my Leafy Bias scarf. Can’t wait to show it to you.
Now off to buy the Sunday paper and do some more knitting.
Until next time…
