pears appliques could either be on towels or a wall hanging.

There is a new chalkboard fabric that can be fun.   Fabric Confetti has designed wonderful  Greetings and Affirmations to go with this fabric.   Chalkboard markers are available as well as chalkboard chalk can be used.   Wouldn’t this be fun on a shopping bag – especially if you sent your husband for a few groceries?   The list wouldn’t get lost.

They had on display other applique patterns,  a scissors, some fancy USB sticks, a folding pen, Angelina fiber, a pressing sheet and some BoNash.     If you don’t know about BoNash, I really recommend you look this up  as this is a superior product for mending as well as for applique.   I mended a pair of jeans for DH and it took looking to find the mended spot.
