Libelle Winterfair and IHSW November 2012

Hi all,

As promised here are some photos of the Libelle Winterfair I've visited last week Thursday. This one was typical for women = cooking, baking, clothing, ... and most important all things crochet and embroidery.

Have a look ...

Bought one of the houses

Some lovely inspiration

Also tried some Décopatch

Ordered chart on E-bay :-)

 And of course, after being inspired I had to take some things home and immediately start with it :-).

My treasures

I started crocheting a scarf with it but didn't take pictures of that one yet. Alhough the wool is soft and "flexible" I think that it will be more "rigid and prickly" ;-)

The green linnen will be for future stitching of Christmas trees by The Prairie Schooler (leaflet I and II)

And because the were screaming to me, I've finished my first ornament completely. Mind you, everything was new to me ... putting together the ornament (with sewing machine), making cording and sewing it to the ornament. Phew ... one down, five to go! ;-)

And last but not least ... I've stitched some more on my "Weihnachten steht vor der Tür" by UB Stickdesigns. Have put some snow on the branches and stitched some more ornaments ... there are now 21 of them hanging on the tree.

Updates will follow ...

What a great way to spend a day and get inspired. It looked like it was a lot of fun.

That is a lovely finish for your ornament. The first one is always the hardest. Good luck with the other 5.
