Sydney Quilt & Craft Show

Early on Friday morning I headed off and met Jenny and Margaret at the turnoff and we drove up to Sydney for the Quilt and Craft Show at Darling Harbour!   We had a great day, arriving home exhausted at about 10pm!!     The Travelling Friendship Quilt was on display and it was absolutely amazing!   Beautifully worked and put together by women all over Australia!

Having tried my hand at bobbin lace making a while ago (and deciding I would take it up again in my retirement) I enjoyed watching the ladies from the Lace Guild work so quickly with their bobbins to create such beautiful lace pieces!

Gorgeous "royal" tea cosies at the tea cosy display!

It was great to catch up with lots of fellow bloggers at a lunch time get together organised by Chookyblue (left)   Sandy (middle) and Maree (right) were having a chat when I took this photo!

Always good fun to catch up with Cardygirl (Alison)!

And Alison had made this gorgeous nametag just so we would all know who she was!

Some of the blogging girls outside the convention centre!   Lots of laughs and it was great to meet the faces to the blogs!

Some of the wearable art was amazing!

And "stall of the day" for me was Anni's Hatched and Patched stall!   Anni is always so welcoming and happy to see you - even at the end of a long few days!   Always smiling and ever creative!!

Great to see Kate again and meet her friends Deb and Susan - seen here lurking at Anni's stall!!
