Sewing Show

A friend and I spent yesterday at Puyallup for the Sewing Show-what fun. For the first hour I thought I would be the only one who could go to the biggest show around and not buy anything-not much of a shopper. Then I found the buttons with the magic sign "50% off". The beads were irresistable too even though I have lots of necklaces in this color.On to the booth with Kimono scraps bundled in color groups also at an exceptional price. I restrained myself and just got two.Last year I found the nices scrap packages of metallic painted fabric-very generous amounts per package. This year I bought 3. Above is one of them. The booth had a number of wall hangings done with them in abstract designs that were stunning-good advertising.Finally, there were the rovings. As you can see, I like bits and pieces of things. I think it makes me be more creative to have to figure out what to do with them--other than just looking at them and petting them.  We had a nice day.
