Fringe Festival Home is where the craft is

This afternoon I wandered off with Mum to visit "Home is Where the Craft is" as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Hosted by the wonderful Ms Cate of Polka Dot Rabbit fame.

Given the gastro epidemic that is happening at my house at the moment, I didn't think that I would actually make it to the exhibition. The original plan was to visit Friday afternoon, the last day of my "holidays" .. but I was too busy vomiting.

I love the idea of alternative or radical cross stitch and looked forward to seeing what people came up with.

I like the idea of pushing the boundaries of embroidery using unconventional materials and patterns.

Ms Curlypops had her range of re-crafted crochet objects on display.

Out the back there was Polly Pratt with some of her creations for sale in the pop-up craft market that they held today. She has an online store opening, so keep an eye on her blog.

How was your sunday?

I really wanted to go, but the timing wasn't right! Maybe I'll take Amelia for her first birthday.
