Yesterday I went to the Craft,Quilt and Stitch Show which was held at the Claremont Showgrounds. Of course the first thing I had to do was to fill out the entry form for the door prize,a new sewing machine. A few minutes after that I saw Sue from my Friday Sewing Group,outside the Bernina stand of course. A little way along I saw a neighbour and I told her that she was the second person I knew. Linda told me that she and 14 other ladies from the Embroidery Guild were there for the day. Linda had just purchased some embroidery books so I may have to pay her a visit soon. I wanted to get one of the "curved piecing foots" I have seen these on the net and have been impressed with the result. I managed to get mine from Michele who owns Lavender Quilts. From another stall I picked up some embroidery needles. Yes that is all I bought,I did pick up a few leaflets and will have a look through these. The one thing I was totally awestruck with was the work done by Ken Smith a Tasmanian Textile Artist. Another lady and I just stood in front of his work which was an embroidered waste coat and couldn't believe our eyes. Ken has a website,please check it out.
Our winter veggie garden is producing lots of fresh crisp veggies. I went out after lunch and saw this miniature cauliflower ready to be picked. I think these are bigger than last years.
We have been picking the broccoli for a while now. A fresh head of broccoli each night for tea along with some Chinese Cabbage and English Spinach and Rocket.
I hope everyone enjoys the weekend. It is a Derby weekend here with the West Coast Eagles and Freo Docker's playing. Bonnie is going,she supports The Eagles but will be in the Docker's Member's area. It certainly will be a interesting game.
Have a Happy Weekend.
