Creativa Brussels 2014

Last Saturday (15th) I went to the Creativa fair in Brussels. For me this is one of the most lovely ones in Belgium.

The funny thing is that I saw a huge crowd before entering and I thought "ouch this is going to take a while before entering" but - lucky me - it seemed to be for another fair in another building called "Made in Asia" which involved everything animé cartoons and characters, computer games and other stuff for youngsters ;-). At the opening time whe heard lots of shouting and then we saw a big crowd running to be one of the first at the entry ...


Here's an impression of the day:

Something creative ... but what? To give you a clue ...
 
Knitted nets!

The future is here : 3D-printing!

 
Some patchwork ...
 

 ... and STITCHING of course!
 
 
 
 
I didn't buy lots of things since I have cardboards full of stuff stash and I just limited myself to two books (Kreuz & Quer and Christiane Dahlbeck), a small booklet by Brin par Brin, 35ct. "crème" Zweigart linnen for my "And They Sinned" sampler and the new 100th anniversary edition of Quiltmania.

I just love German designers ... they always make something colourfull and delicate

"Oisellerie" - Brin par Brin = just perfect for Spring and Easter


I'm going to give a start on my "And They Sinned" today which is the official start of Spring AND the birthday of my grandfather who sadly passed away already to many years ago ... I already could've started this Monday (when I received my fibers) but really wanted to mark this special day on my sampler and no way I was going to cheat :-)!

For those who don't have a clue about how it looks like ... 809 x 169 stitches will be put in it only using Gentle Arts Sampler threads.

That's it for now!
