Sew It Together 2010

Is it May yet? come on, the year is flying by so quick as it is, it's got to be getting close right?

Can you tell I'm excited? Last week I briefly entertained the idea of putting all 4 of us on a plane plus train trip to the "country" to visit the Parents-in-Law for a couple of days and attend some of Sew it Together.

Common sense and sanity kicked in soon after.

Dean decided he'd rather brave the kids in the comfort of home on his own for 2 nights instead of a hotel room and I would head to Melbourne BY MYSELF.

Within 24 hours I had booked flights BY MYSELF, a whole hotel room TO MYSELF and booked myself into ALL the events. OK that's not by myself but with a whole bunch of other crafty peeps.

Now I'm excited for a weekend doing nothing but crafting, nervous about meeting all the "famous" bloggers I read but most of all very very looking forward to meeting everyone in person.

Since I can't drag my sewing machine and fabric etc etc with me, I'm stocking up on knitting and crochet goodies to take so have been wearing out the credit card over the last couple of days to get these beauties on their way to me.

From Bendigo Classic 12ply Almond for a vest for Bella and Luxury 8ply Stone for a jumper for Liam

Pickles Extra Fine Merino in Milk, Frost, Latte & Granite for a knitted baby blanket

Is it too early to start packing my bags??

So jealous, I've been longing to go to something like this, but there just isn't anything close.

Got the title of that book for you. Maybe you should pick it up and take that with you on your adventure!

It's called called Boutique Knits: 20+ must have accessories.

and this is a link to it, though it is the American one. Just so you know what it is suppose to be.


Let me know if you get it.
