Fun at the fair

There were lots of treasures to be found at our annual school fete on the weekend, the highlight being this gorgeous old pink dish for $2.50 on the White Elephant stall. I have no idea what era it is from, but it reminds of my Grandma's depression glass.
I spoiled myself with a new necklace made by Picadilly Designs.
And I found wonderful fresh quinces & rhubarb. The quinces are destined for quince paste, and the rhubarb is screaming to be teamed with new season apples in a crumble.
So there is no shortage of things for me to do today. There is one more frilly dilly to be finished, this one for my daughter ...
And I need to get back to finish this ...
and this ...
Although I'm really tempted to pop over here & make one of these sweet pincushions!
Have a great day. I'd better get to it!


  1. Bloom what treats...that the bag and of course the stitcheries, the necklace very nice...

  2. The bowl is gorgeous. If there's ny rhubarb crumble left can you send it over, I love it but as I'm the only one in the house that does I don't make it.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  3. Yum, Rubard and Apple favourite dessert! Hope you had a productive day and achieved heaps!! Cathy

  4. Your embroidery is JUST PRECIOUS!!! wow!

  5. Looks like a great fair, if only we had been here 4 days earlier we could have checked it out!!

  6. Just popping in to say I picked up my mail yesterday and the frilly dilly arrived safely.

    I must say the photos do not do it justice at all, it's so perfectly made with very good quality fabric. And the colours are me to a tee. My partner and I couldn't believe how suited it is to my style so thank you very much, I will strut around Brisbane with it very proudly xx

  7. Love your prizes from the fair, Bloom. Very pretty!

    Looks like some lovely projects on the go at your place. Your frilly dilly bags are just the sweetest. I love the fabrics you're combining on the one for your daughter.

  8. Oh, looks like a great time at the fair! Beautiful bowl!!!
    Beautiful embroidery, too!! ;o)
    Have a great weekend!
