Sydney Quilt Show & Blogversary

Busy weekend in our house, between the quilt show and Supernova, the household was buzzing with excitement.  Most of last week saw #1 son's girlfriend finishing off her costume for Sunday Amazonian version of Wonder Woman.  She made everything, corset, gloves, bustle, panties, gauntlets, tiara and the list goes on.  Don't have pictures yet, but will put one up when I get one.  She is one very clever girl, who is in her last year at uni doing a double degree in paramedic and nursing.  So nerd central at our house :)

Had a lovely day Saturday at the Quilt Show with the bff and quilting buddy Rhonda.  We had a great day, and the longest one I think we have ever had.  We did a class with Marg Lowe, something we have never done before, and something I think we will be doing from here on.  We seemed to hover around Anni's stand, just love her stuff.  Will go up and visit her shop one day, pretty sad when you think of it #1 son is at university in Bathurst so there really is no excuse not to visit with Anni. Made a few visits to Natalie from the Birdhouse, same with her things.  Next year I am going on the Friday, don't want to miss another blog meeting and maybe I will stay overnight and go again on Saturday.  

In this class we met a few people who may be familiar to some of your, Chookyblue, Peg (Happy In Quilting), Peg's friend Dale and Kerry from Cottage on the Hill in Nundle.  We also met up with Cheryll (Gone Stitchin') and a couple of other ladies for coffee after the class which was also great fun.  Got myself a little table top stand, and plan on doing some swaps with Cheryll and her mini quilts.

While we were chatting I mentioned to Peg that my blogversary had come and gone without me noticing, so I am mentioning it now :) only a month late.  I have made 87 posts including this one, and have 32 followers which I thank each and everyone of you for.  I have had great fun during the last 12 months, and have found some wonderful online friends, and been inspired to the moon and back.

Also this weekend I have had two finishes.  Now in case you haven't notice I am having a love affair with Gail Pan's patterns, and that seems to be most of what I am sewing.  And now unveiling 2 more ...... ta da.......

I took the backpack with me on Saturday to the show, was lovely to carry and very roomy.

My off sider at work is on her last week of holidays this week, and due back either Monday or Tuesday of next week, cant believe 6 weeks have flown by.  Now for the busy time of the year, with End of Financial Year looming, glad I had alot of sewing traced, at least I can keep calm while all the kaos is happening around me :)

Well that's enough from me.

Happy stitching
