Sydney Quilt & Craft Fair

Last weekend I went off to the Quilt fair in the city. Sydney certainly put on a gorgeous winter day, but I forgot to get some photos outside LOL

I had the pleasure of meeting up with friends from HERE - Cardygirl and No Blog Tooth Fairy!!!
These girls were some of my room mates from the retreat in Nundle and we are headed to another retreat there in August.

My mum came too and brought her next door neighbour of about 40 years, Carmen. Carmen is a carer for her disabled adult daughter so it was great for her to have a day out enjoying herself. She had a very educational day learning what a Jelly Roll was!!
Here we are enjoying a lovely lunch in an outdoor cafe in Darling Harbour.

There were some absolutely stunning quilts on display here, some amazing work.

There was also a section for "wearable art" of which I just have to show you these two creations. Obviously you need to be more artistic than I am to appreciate these outfits LOL

And lastly my purchases. Now you know I went to The Home Patch in Bathurst last month, well I spent more at their stand here than any other LOL
I bought Anni's new book of bags and some fabric kits for some of the bags. And just a couple of extra patterns that I just had to have!

I also treated myself to an Ott Light and of course just a bit of fabric for good measure!

Since talking to other bloggers since last weekend there a possibility of trying to organise a bloggers get together at next years show. So keep a weekend free in June 2011 and stay tuned!
