Where else to shop in Bathurst but Anni Down's shop - The Home Patch!!
Where else to meet up with fellow quilting bloggers - The Home Patch!!
Me with Alison (non blogger), Chookyblue and Kate-Show & Tell
And one with Sandy - Patchwork Angel
Deb & Khris were doing a Punchneedle class with Anni so we gatecrashed the classroom to say hello!
The Home Patch is such a beautiful shop - with so much fabric and other goodies in every nook and cranny - I am sure you can't take it all in in one visit!
And outside is just as lovely - it is a really old building that has such character..
After some serious shopping by us all we headed into town to Crepes Royale - for an extremely delicious lunch!
Funny......I didn't get any pics of the main course..........just dessert LOL
Now, for those who know me, know that i have said I will not start doing Hexagons/ Paper Piecing. Don't get me wrong, it is not that I don't like it, it is because it is just another thing that I don't want to start and not finish LOL
When I was in Brisbane for the retreat last month one of the patchwork shops gave us a sample pack of hexagons in our bags. So I took this to show Chookyblue, for a joke as she introduced me to Sue Daley (queen of paper piecing) at the Craft show as someone who refuse to do hexies LOL so of course she had to show me how to put them together.
So everyone, here is the proof - Anita doing Hexies!!
But just so you know - I haven't been "sucked into the hexie vortex"...........well not yet anyway hehe!!
If you want to see some more pics of our fantastic day go visit the other girl's blogs...........they of course had their posts up on their blogs within a day or 2 of going. Me - well it took me almost a week !!
Thanks girls for a great day - it is amazing how the internet brings us all together. I was so glad we got to meet, love how we meet for the first time and we get on like old friends, like we have known each other for ever. Can't wait until next time!!!!
