We had our Annual Quilt Extravaganza this weekend and it was a HUGE success!!! Thanks so much to everyone who attended – it was fabulous to meet so many fellow stitchers!! Here’s a piccy of my stand this year … and guess who I was next to??? Well it was probably just asking for trouble he he, but Nikki and I got to have side by side stands again – oh, and what fun we had ;o). That was of course when Nikki wasn’t busy doing her housework lol ….Here’s the two stands side by side :o)… Don’t they look pretty :o)!!?!
The strangest thing happened on Friday night … my voice decided to take a holiday. I’m not kidding, I had to do the show – 2 days of it anyway – with a squeaky “Minnie Mouse” type voice Eeek!!! Happy to say it seems to be on it’s way back now, but it certainly made it difficult trying to chat to everyone.
Kez from Giggle Buttons popped in to say G’day which was lovely as I haven’t seen her for absolutely ages……. No piccy though as I’m such a slacker – although Kez has heaps on her facebook page so go and have a look there ;o).
I was also very lucky to meet some blogging friends over the weekend too. I didn’t get a piccy of Gill and I together - she only arrived in Brisbane on Saturday (all the way from UK!!!!), and bless her quilty heart she was at the show visiting on Sunday!!! What a dear lady she is too, we had such a lovely chat!! Gill if you’re reading this please email the piccy your gawjus daughter took of us both so that I can show it off to everyone ;o).
And just look at the beautiful goodies Gill gave me ….. now how kind is that??!!
Thank you so much Gill!! We’re going to make a date to go to the Antique stores in Paddington – a girls day out – I’m really looking forward to that :o).
Well I’d better be off, there’s still loads of mess in my cave … so much to put away **sigh**. Oh, but before I go … a bit more exciting news, I have one of my designs in the latest issue of “Homespun”!!! I just love this magazine and when I saw it in the newsagents with my bag on the cover I couldn’t get to the cash register with it quick enough lol.
HOPE on a flour sack and in my heart...
