wow, what a weekend, its taken til today to recover and show you some pics. Jo, Noni and I had a lovely but exhausting weekend in Melbourne at the Australian quilt market catching up with old and meeting many new friends.
Of course we were there to work and work we did, if you can call it that. Not much time to shop or look at things or even chat outside the booth but lots of chatting done inside the booth.
We finally met the lovely Mrs DLN an saw her fantastic quilts up close and personal- and even shared our fudge with her and Jan – thanks for the loan of the knife – hope the fudge was payment enough!
Would you believe I didn't take my camera out once, but thankfully Jo and Lillian did..
Jhoanna and her friends spent the day with us Saturday even with her exhibition starting on Monday…
Cori’s new patterns were very popular, and you can see why..
Can you see Life is Beautiful in the corner? yes it is ready but I am waiting until things quieten down to release it to you all next week- so watch this space for your chance to win a set!
The atmosphere at night is so amazing in Melbourne on a warm summers evening. We ended up walking all the way home just to soak it up. Buskers, romantic cruises on the river (even topless ones), couples nesting on the banks, bands playing on the boardwalk, sumptuous smells emanating from all the restaurants and the lights of Melbourne.
This was when I remembered my camera, after finishing the packdown Sunday afternoon with our glamorous (albeit smelly) smocks on.
home now to follow up for everyone, sorry if I was too busy to chat, maybe next time we have to preplan things and come over early
for a trunk show or dinner or more.
Missed catching up with you this year, maybe next year??!! Just called into Country Chix and had to let Molly know - I LOVE your quilts!The photo's don't do them justice (as always). Well done Molly, you must be very proud Helen. Yours look pretty good to of course! Lisa xxx
