Melbourne Craft and and Quilt Show

Went along to the show yesterday and spent the day catching up with friends, a 2 hour stint of white glove duty, knitting Poppies and cruising the stalls.

The Sentinels were on display.

 It was interesting how everyone interpreted the stitching and the embellishments used.

 Dijanne has another to be stitched for another exhibition. I bought one, the opposite colour to the one I had previously finished.
 One of my 2 purchases, Misti Alpaca 4 ply and a free pattern for another scarf.
In the tones of blues, teal, olive green and terracotta.
The quilts on display were fantastic.
Spent some time knitting at the 5,000 Poppies display. I handed over 49 poppies to Lyn and sat and knitted 2 more. There was a lot of interest. 5,000 was the target and at the moment 19,000+ have been made by knitting, crotchet, felt and fabric. They are now aiming for 25,000 by April 2015 but at this rate they will certainly exceed the number.
