Quilt-A-Fair 2010

Happy Friday everyone!
Melanie and I had so much fun at this year's Quilt-A-Fair show!
It is our favorite show of the year and we always find so many treasures to take home with us!

Look at all of this fabric and this is just one of the hundreds of booths to shop at!

We were like kids in a candy shop I tell ya!

Here are just a few of the fabrics I found and I even found this vintage crocheted dog for my collection!
Isn't he fabulous?
I picked him up the second I saw him! He was only $3.50 if you can believe it!

... and this little puggy doll and owl are from Japan.

Melanie even found a pair of wool mittens made from upcycled felted sweaters.
They match the fabulous teddy bears she makes and sells in her Etsy Shop!

... and at the end of the day, I surprised Melly with this quilted teddy bear to add to her collection.
We both found everything we wanted and more!

We cannot wait until next year!
What fun things do you have planned for this weekend?
Please leave us a note and tell us all about it!
We cannot wait to hear!

New Tables for my Crocheted Fruit Collection

Happy Thursday everyone!

I am so excited to show you the new tables I just bought to display the crocheted fruit I made this summer.

I found them on, and I think they are perfect!

They are well made, easy to assemble and the perfect size and colors for my dining room. :)

I just completed the avocado and soft boiled egg. Aren't they cute?

Ta Da!

I have hyperlinked the places I got the patterns for my collection here in case you would like to make them too.

It was so fun to make each one!

and here is a neat directory of free crochet patterns to make lots of other yummy fruit and snacks!

Please let me know if you make any of them. I would love to see!
