Saturday I was lucky enough to get to the Australian Quilt Market in Melbourne. I took Mum, and had arranged to meet up with a few crafty cohorts. We had a lovely morning checking out whats new to the quilty world, caught up with a few clever crafty chicks and made contact with some of my suppliers. Here's a few goodies from the day. Not much in the way of fabric as what I wanted hadn't arrived from the USA yet.
I'm also about to be the proud owner of a GoBaby Fabric Cutter. Its a long story, but there was a deal, if you bought four you got a great deal........ so Ab convinced us we all needed one. Expect to see lots of shapely things popping up on our blogs soon.
Just before we parted company the crafty cohorts presented me with my surprise 40th birthday presi!!
A snazzy, sewing machine cover with hexi motifs made by B-FAb,
or "the wenches" as they call themselves. Not sure how that name originated but it has stuck.
I was quite overwhealmed girls!!!
Thankyou all again. xxx
I saw Ab sewing hexis on her blog the other day. I never thought it would be for me.
Love the fox.
As for the ridiculous size of these babies.
Fi - you are mad.
None of us are crazy enough to make them this small.
Australia Post still have B's hexis so I'll sew them on when they arrive.
So the sewing room is looking quite bright and cheery today.
I also got to thinking how I'm so glad I started blogging. I'd never have met these girls and otherwise. Funny how you can 'click' with people through the written word. We have got together a few times now and its like we have know each other for years. Love you girls. xx
