We went to a Quilt Show - wouldn't you know I forgot the camera.

It's a lovely little show in a building on the county fair grounds during the Placer County Fair... thus there is only a charge to get into the fair - for us seniors $3 each - and no charge for the quilt show. (I still can't figure out how they make any money for their guild.)  Anyway, here's what I bought.

A Snap purse - closes with 2 lengths of metal measuring "tape". I bought it so I'd remember to try this myself. The other object is a pincushion made of a golf tee, a pop bottle cap and a fabric circle filled with crushed walnut shell. (They say it's very good for keeping pins and needles sharp.)

Here it is shown in the intended use. I thought it quite cute.
Not much sewing done over the weekend. Just a little hand sewing done on the pink hexies.
