Creativ Festival Spring 2013

Well we survived the Creativ Festival 2013.  Dd came with me and as both of us are sick we only managed a couple of hours.  Mind you if I had stayed much longer I would have had to take out a second mortgage!!!  So lots of things that I would have loved, but we managed to only spend a little money.  I am now going to be busy though as dd bought the following material from Fabric Spot  It's a Canadian company from Markham Ontario and their fabric is gorgeous.  Dd's living room, is green, orange and brown, so she got a fat quarter bundle from the Piper collection.  The orange backing is from Architextures collection.
I got two bundles of fat quarters from the Organic Willow collection in pink and pale green.  The pale grey backing is also from the Architextures collection.  I am going to make two baby quilts to have on hand.


I then bought these six fat quarters from Log Cabin Yardage  They too are a Canadian Company and are located in Whitevale, which is north of Pickering.  I am going to make dd a table runner for her kitchen table with these.

I also bought these three cross stitch patterns from Red Gate Stitchery.  This lady is based in the States and was a delight to talk too.  She has some really neat products that you cross stitch.  All super simple to do, even a beginner will find these patterns easy and all super cute.  You can see better images on her website.

Love the cross stitch, especially as they can be sent as pdf so I can get them in the UK. Hope you are feeling better

I've known Markham for years. Back when we frequented - or passed through, it was barely a dot on the map, now it has its own industry. Can't tell you how many times we passed through during our total of 8 years in in Toronto, Ringwood area.

Nice post! I love the fabric. I'm a sucker for the piper line, but I didn't get to buy as much as you! I spent a few too many hours at Festival and it added up fast! Fabric Spot is amazing - if you don't mind me posting it (or remove it if you'd like) I am having a Fabric Spot giveaway on www.threadridinghood.com until May 17,2013.

I love your fabrics you got...specially the ones in pink! I have such a hard time not buying fabric, and the prices are really going up.
