Sydney Quilt Show

I, along with many of my blogging and on-line friends, had a fabulous weekend in Sydney at the Quilt Show.  Well, the Quilt Show was the excuse for all of us to get together.  Met some long-time friends for the first time and met some new friends - truly wonderful time.

The next photo I borrowed from Peg.  This photo was taken after dinner on Friday night.  As I've recently taken on a temp assignment I wasn't able to make it to Sydney for the lunch-time blog meet so it was lovely to be able to catch up with a lot of the girls at dinner.

Dale, Peg, Sue, me, Kerry, Dzintra, Chooky, Anita - thanks Sarah for the update.
Saturday morning I met up with more of the girls from our on-line group at breakfast then headed off to the Quilt Show.  I took about 4 photos all day.  Too much to see, too many shops to visit, too many people to chat with.  I ran into one girl from our stitching group and two girls I went to school with.

The girls head down working hard - is Chooky trying to copy?
Afternoon tea with the girls - sorry there are more girls whose names I don't know - please let me know so I can add some links.
That's Sue sitting next to me.
Dinner on Saturday night before the fireworks.
Sarah, De, Vicki, Peg, Helen, Jenny, Chooky, Me, Maree, Dale, Christine - Jenny is updating her blog.
Sunday I took my roomies (Helen, Jenny and Teresa) in to the City to have a wander around some shops and arcades before they headed off to the airport. These photos are from Teresa's blog.

The girls thought I really was in Wonderland - one of my favourite shoe shops (Zoe Wittner).
Some of the goodies I bought at the Quilt Show.  The scarves and Posh Pendants are presents for friends and the rest is stuff that I absolutely need.  I think Anni's little turtle pincushion would be the most popular item at the show - it's so sweet, I had to buy a kit along with nearly everyone I know.
