Sydney Quilt show 2017

What a great day! On Friday I met up with Sonia and explored the show...we caught up with a lot of friends throughout the day.

We ended the day with a few gin and tonics and enjoyed a lovely dinner at Cyrens Darling Harbour with Sonia, Chooky, Fairygirl, Lynda and Julie ( Chooky took a group shot which I will steal later). The Cassillis girls joined us for a quick gin and tonic (blame Lea)  before they headed off to dinner. Was lovely catching up with you all! 

Started a new kit from Sarah Fielke whilst having a rest by the water before tackling the last hour of the show

We looked everywhere for this gorgeous mini by Susan of Thimblestitch, it was soo small. I forgot she used 1/4 hexis. Congrats on your place.

You know who the this is?????  the creative works of Rachel from Blue Mountain Daisy.

I joined the many people touching the black to see if it was one quilt lol shhh no touching lol. It was three quilts...just gorgeous!!! Congrats Rachel!!

Ok I did buy a few kits from Annis...

And many things from Sarah Fielke...the Alice fabric was from Verandah...I bought it to make my centre on Sarahs BOM Down the Rabbit Hole....

I am using my new apple pincushion in Sarahs new range Word Play... I also bought some reproduction fabric from Cherry Pie Designs, always nice to see Carol....

I have been embroidering my new stitchery each night...but today I need to move into my new sewing space as its ready...yay!!!! I see a major destash coming in the next few weeks...
