Of course, a day at a show like this wouldn't be complete without a few purchases along the way and, I was absolutely delighted to find some new Gail Pan patterns at one of the exhibits as well as some of her wonderful new fabrics 'Baskets in Bloom' which are distributed by Red Rooster Fabrics.
It was my favourite 'buy' of the day!! See the whole fabric range here.
I just couldn't resist the beautiful ribbons pictured at start of this post or the cute packets of buttons. I can't wait to use them all in a project or two!!
Looking forward to another fun-filled day today! Have a lovely weekend!
Just came across your blog as I was surfing for the Gail Pan book Patchwork Loves Embroidery.ReplyDelete
