WOW! What a Craftalicious five days we have had. I am still coming down from the high of the Stitches and Craft Show, but some of the highlights for me were....
*Meeting the most clever and gorgeous bloggers and creaters and being so totally taken with their friendliness and down-to-earthness. Incubator (or the "Left of Centre" section as it was described by someones Mum) was bursting at the seams with amazing creative people and I loved getting to know them all.Here are just a few of them I could catch.
All sporting Betty Jo.
* The blogger dinner organised by Sooze. Great fun. She has some good pics on her blog!
* Viewing the "Handmade Nation" doco...this film could easily be a defining moment in Betty Jo consciousness! So relevant and galvanizing of all my thoughts and aspirations.
*And the best bit...Unpacking all my loot, either swapped or purchased from the talented array of crafters in the Incubator.

RicRac Zipper mouth dolly (named Francis by Charlie)
and a Twiglet Lion softie (chosen by Lily for a B'day pressie for moi) Still to be named.
Nicole M purse on hand printed Textile Allsorts tights,
and a Kristen Doran printed fabric panel, that I think needs to be stretched and hung on the wall and not messed up in any way (such as me sewing with it!)
One Red Robin and is now debating how to transform it. Luckily she is taking "Fashion" at school so some solid sewing guidance can be sought!
