The trade show is the biggest in the world - and has visitors from all over the world - the whole city is a buzz with foodie types from every continent !
Having worked 11 days straight it was lovely to have Friday off as a lieu day & create a long weekend.
I was in tidy mode and spent a happy couple of hours being fairly ruthless in my craft room drawers ! I dumped things that were too old to ever see the light of day again, donated some better stuff to the charity shop and now actually know what I have in my stash !
Only two more sets of drawers & a huge cupboard to tidy next - that will be this winter's project !
Tidy urge satisfied, I set about making up the Scandi-style topper quilt.
I had really forgotten just quite how much maths is involved in designing a quilt !
Working out block sizes, layouts and border widths was a good workout for the little grey cells !
So my work-desk this week is my quilt cupboard - a cascade of red & white !!
Here's the progress so far !
And just to keep the Scandi theme going here are some of the Advent Stockings in the same fabric theme ...
One down ... 23 to go !
Have a great crafty week ! Ali x
