A shoppers paradise....yesterday I went to see the annual craft fair "Manualmente" here in Turin and I just couldn't resist to buy a few things. As usual there were many lovely things to buy....too many. I  had gone there with a shopping list of things I needed but I was a bit distracted with so many new ideas that I didn't manage to buy all that was on my list.
Ieri sono andata a fare un giro a "Manualmente" qui a Torino.Come sempre c'era tantissimi cose belle....troppe .Avevo scritto una lista di cose che avevo alla fine ero distratto dalle novita che non ho potuto comprare quello che avevo bisogno. 

This is what first caught my eye. An image already printed on material ready to peel off and stick on.I had heard of this idea before on blogland....... usually I print images on to transfer paper then iron that on to material but this seems easier. I also bought 2 sheets of material A4 ready to have a go myself  using the printer.
Per prima ho visto questo bel imagine gia stampato sulla stoffa bianca pronto da applicare ...Sembra una novita anche se ho gia sentito parlare fra i nostri Blog......L'imagine e stampata su un foglio di stoffa.non e neccessario stirare  l'imagine  ......toglie la pellicola dietro e via......
 I bought this lovely tea towel already cross stitched ...a bargain at the price.....
Ho comprato questo stroffinacio gia ricamato in stile francese comè piace a me
 As usual I found some pieces of material that I needed.
Ho comprato ancora delle stoffe.....

 So glad I found these little charms ...exactly what I needed....
Piccoli charms per un progetto che avevo gia in mente......
I treated myself to this stencil ....will be ideal for using on cushions.....boxes....or maybe even to use on walls.
Uno stencil che sara molto utile per scrivere su tessuti ...scatole...muri. 
I f only I could go back again Today wouldn't that be great......oh well...I shall look forward to the next one.
Se potevo tornare di nuovo oggi sara magnifico....aspettero la prossima.
