Creative Festival

Today I went to the Creative Festival in Toronto with one of my young quilty/sewy friends. She bought a lot - I bought nothing, except lunch.

I saw some neat things...

The following are corsages made from sugar. They are orchids. They are stunning.

From the Markham Quilt Guild. This quilt has 30,000 squares in it! Each square finished at about 1/2"
Honestly, I'm a little disappointed in the show - again. It's neat that it's a creative mixture of crafts - sewing, quilting, scrapbooking, knitting, etc, but then it's also about a lot of things and so I didn't think there was a lot of specialty items. None of the fabric vendors had yardage - everything was fat quarters.  Nobody had what I was looking for. I like the spring show much better - and it's cheaper. I had an enjoyable day so it wasn't a lost day.
