More pretties

More pretties from the Craft Fair:

Shade card from Bendigo - because, hey, I have some limits and buying huge balls of well-priced good quality yarn was outside the limit (I almost can't believe I just wrote that!!) but you never know when you might need some and it's good to be prepared!
And the fabric from Patchwork on Central Park (colours of the moment - orange and blue, which I discovered is Denyse Schmidt fabric, as a I trawled through their site last night - except for the Olivia fabric, which I bought because I just love Olivia - a most precocious piglet who dreams of being a Degas ballerina, a diva like Maria Callas, a painter like Jackson Pollock and most importantly, loves to wear red!)

I think I may have to take a day off work to get the sewing machine out!

You didn't buy Bendigo when it was right there in front of you? Such restraint! The shade cards of very useful though.
