They discharged me from hospital and I went straight to the Stitches and Craft Show down the road. I'm not sure it was the soundest decision I have ever made but I got there when it opened and only spent a couple of hours doing some shopping. By this time I was ready to get home to bed.
I now have a raft of medical appointments I have to attend but hopefully this will get me back on my feet again.
I spent a whole heap of money on very little. Things were very expensive but as I only shop here once a year, and I really wanted and can use the things I bought I think the expense was justified.
A couple of metres of Japanese fabric,cord, a mould for a broach and webbing plus some extra threads. That little lot was over $180.00! I can't buy these machine threads anywhere in Australia and I do love wonderfil threads, those two boxes were $100.00.
And then I got to meet Cecile Franconie. (http://www.facilececile.com) Her English is a bit better than my French but we managed to chat for over 30 mins. Luckily for me she didn't have any kits with her or I would have broken the bank.
I would have loved to attended her workshop but knew I wasn't well enough so I just bought her book. I took a flyer for the Quilt Show in Nantes next year. I think that would be a good trip, then, as I would be in Europe I could include Sweden and some other places?
