Craft Fair Preparations

It has been a very busy week finalising the prepartions for the Hobart Craft Fair. It is exciting but nerve racking at the same time!! Tender Moments is due back from the quilters tomorrow and after binding it, Im ready to go!!

I needed a project to teach in the daily workshops and as Sally had booked me in for applique and stitchery, I decided to combine both:

This is a reverse applique heart and a sweet and simple stitchery. It needed to be something they could work on in the 55 min timeslot, so hopefully they will fnish the applique and begin their stitching before their time is up.

Of course I had to make up a sample to give them an idea on what to use their little block for!!

I used my Simply Pretty bag pattern in Decadent Victorian fabrics!! Its amazing how different it looks!! A fun project to work on!!

Thanks for all your comments on the Black and White Tablerunner and just for the record.......she loved it!!!!
