Four days of crowds, great sales, late night shopping on Saturday night with heaps of people taking part in the purple scarf competition, stacks of demonstrations later and I am officially TIRED!!!!

On Friday evening after the show, Andrew and I went into town for some dinner.  Andrew is always on the lookout for design inspiration for his scrapmatts and these delightful shoes certainly attracted his attention!

Saturday evening trading was sparkled up by the event organisers conducting a purple scarf competition.  Several of the exhibitors offered prizes to those who had taken part in the making of and wearing their own purple creation.

There was a most excited 4 year old who had made a lovely felted, appliqued and stitched purple number excitedly announcing to anyone who would listen that she had won.  Great to see the new generation getting involved!

Then there was us….. yes, we both sported hand knitted scarves with suitable scrapmatts attached…..unfortunately, there are no photos of my “outfit”.
