Quilt Show Shopping

Today John and I plus 4 friends travelled to Sydney to the Quilt Show. Some breathtaking quilts in the exhibition with plenty of handquilting, which was lovely to see. Lots of favourite shops were there. We saw 5 of the completed Quilt Aid quilts - certainly makes choosing a finishing kit more difficult. The quilts are really lovely.

Bought buttons for the new Bronwyn Hayes quilt (Gingham Girls - My Favourite Things) and buttons for the My Little Teahouse pattern I also picked up, plus some bag handles and purse frames. Have had my eye on a rotating mat for quite some time - Scissorman had one for a good price. The honeybuns are for a friend.

Check out the cash registers, eftpos machine, calculator and mobile phone at this shop at the quilt show - what a hoot! Makes my sparkly mouse, calculator and stapler at work look pretty lame.


Queensland tomorrow!

Those rotating mats beat a mat on a lazy susan!! They're great for cutting out hexagons..Hope you brought your jumper for Qld - it's 10 degrees here at the moment xx
