The Future's Orange!

A few friends and I went along to our annual Stitch & Craft show in Belfast today. 

By UK standards, this is a small event, but there are bargains to be had nevertheless!

Here are my humble purchases:

The top orange print was calling to my inner hippy!  And the vintage prints to my inner Granny!



Not a true reflection of the colours here, but there are some delicious teals, greens and oranges among them.

All these fqs were £2 or less.

Pairs of large buttons for £1 each!

I did buy one or two other treats, but they are destined for other hands!

(Sadly over here, we are sorely lacking in retailers selling fresh, modern fabrics.) 

And I’ll finish this ‘really late in the day’ post with something that isn’t orange!

This double-sided Pippi cushion is a gift from Bee Blessed to a special young lady. 

A friend and I worked on it together, and I can show you it now because the lovely lady in question has received it (& is delighted with it!).

The Pippi on the right is mine – unfortunately she seems to be having a wee water retention problem going by the strange thickness in her legs!!!

The cushion is bordered with some cute Riley Blake – sorry they aren’t more obvious in these pics.

Well it’s almost Sunday!  Must sign off now for some much needed beauty sleep.

I hope you’ve had a great Saturday!
