After a much needed day off on Tuesday (30th) we spent all of Wednesday setting up our double the size of market booth ready for quilt festival. After market finished we had fun scavenging all sorts of wonderful props to recycle to make the booth look nice. We recycled Amy Butlers flooring, picked up a gorgoeus white picket fence and an old galvanised tin watering can from Terri (Whimsicals) and got some great white cube shelving from Lecien.
Preview night was from 5pm to 10pm on wednesday 31st Oct, the atmosphere in the room was charged with energy, you could feel the excitement. We had no idea what to expect that night so it was so exciting when these lovely ladies arrived and we were on their 'list' of must visit booths......
Look how fantastic the white picket fence looked....perfect for my display and the old watering can which we tied the fence to to keep it in place needed some extra weight in it so we stored our bottles of drinking water in it which seemed very apropriate!
Once the show got started we were busy almost all day which was good news having travelled so far and shipped stock to the other side of the world you need to be busy!
There was time for me to do a little bit of shopping....I will show you my goodies another day :)
Tomorrow I am heading off bright and early to The Quilted Crow, Tasmania for a day of stitiching, laughter and fun on Saturday plus I'm doing a presentation friday evening. I look forward to seeing you :)
