A visit with a bloggy friend!

Today I got to spend the day with this lovely lady! She was visiting Sydney so we organised to meet up for a few hours. And what do crafty bloggy ladies do when they get together...shop of course!!

We went here ( they had a market day ) so some great buys were to be had. Here is my haul from there, some remnants, a half price stocking kit, half price hand printed linen and some lovely red fabric. I find it hard to get nice reds so snapped up a little bit of this one.
Then we went a couple of streets away to this place. Heaps of fabric here but total opposite in terms of types of fabrics than 2 Young St. Fortunately, i don't have a favourite style and am happy with anything!! LOL. They had heaps of great fabrics marked down to $10 metre so I stocked up on some great reproduction fabrics (hard to find here) for some birthday swaps.

We then drove to Balmain to find this great Patisseries where we ate this...

mine is the smallest of course LOL

Then we had a browse around Balmain markets where we got some great bracelets for only $10, and the black one was only $5!

I had a great time and it was lovely to meet up with Donna again who I met at Nundle in May. We are all looking forward to catching up again at Nundle in March next year. Will be here before we know it!
