Handicraft fairs

Foires 05
As every year, I visited Créativa (regional fair) but I also went in Paris to visit l’aiguille en fête (needle celebrating).

I tried to be reasonable but I have made a few purchases.

Foires 01
Wepam modelling paste : I’m tired of cleaning my oven after cooking Fimo and using a non toxic modelling paste is much more clever.

glass rhinestones + pressure button back : to make my own models for the necklace my friend Marie offered me.

my favorite : this man paints watercolor and had the brilliant idea of making cross-stich kits. His universe is so poetic, I love !!

Foires 02
metal foils : so hard to find in France ! so I bought every colour they had and some double coated bondaweb.

iron on fabric sheets : glitter, flock and metal. I will cut them with my Cameo ! Gift for the fair : free kit of metal strass.

Foires 03
light grey merino balls : in France we say “mice grey”, I want to knit a bolero for… my Mice (nickname of my daughter).

a band of Lyon lace : pick up from a box full of small pièces.

two fat quarters of japanese fabrics : it was very hard to choose from many models.

Foires 04
As I was in Paris, I also went to “Marché Saint Pierre” (a 2500 m² fabrics store !).

synthetic leather : thin and very soft, to sew a skirt.

a piece of indian fabric : when I saw it, I said to myself : “I want it“.

Marché Saint Pierre is also an area (at the foot of the Sacré Cœur) full of other fabrics and notions stores.
It was a day I almost regretted not to be Parisian (almost ;-) ).

So I have lots of furnitures and ideas but… a health problem prevents me to do anything.
My website won’t have new post for a while, please be patient !

    Bonjour. Que de belles choses.
    Je te souhaite beaucoup de courage. Je sais ce que c’est de ne pouvoir se servir que de ses mains, j’ai été coincée dans un fauteuil roulant un bout de temps. Heureusement qu il y a les mains..Lol. Bon rétablissement. Bisous

      Merci de ton attention.
      Heureusement, le temps a passé et le rétablissement est là. Septembre est signe d’une “rentrée” pour une nouvelle année en meilleure santé :-)

    Par ton partage, on fait les boutiques avec toi, jusqu’à Paris. Le hic, c’est de ne pouvoir toucher tous les beaux tissus que j’ai vu. Mes yeux ne me suffisent pas !
    J’ai hâte de voir ce qui va ressortir de tous ces beaux achats.
    A bientôt.
