Yesterday I got out the Friends Guide to the Craft and Quilt Fair which starts on Thursday to give it a good study. I printed off the list of exhibitors to sort out my plan of attack. I see that the Thimblelady is going to be there so I might invest in another thimble because I can't sew without the one I have and there have been a few times when I have lost it and I have been absolutely beside myself until I had recovered it. Unique Stitching is another must (Mixed Media Supplies) and of course Quilt Fabric Delights. I have picked out 3 workshops that I would like to attend, two beading and one mixed media. Might not get there will have to discuss with Sue. And I have a little shopping list which I have just thought of something more to add to it.

I managed to sneak away from the 5 year olds birthday party which was looking like being impossible but with the first scream from the Birthday girl (which was just wonderful bouncing off the hosts wooden floor NOT) I decided that it was very important that I get out of there so at the first opportunity I told DD that she didn't need me and bolted for the door. This gave me 2+ hours on my own to do with as I liked so off I went to the sewing room and got on to the ornies for the Christmas Ornie Swap. So while watching Northanger Abbey I cut, stuck glued and arranged to get my 9 ornies finished. When the kids went to bed I finished them so I am way ahead of schedule. Just got to fix something to hang them with and organise the wrapping and tag.
