Thanks to Rebecca for the lovely flowers she sent me for my birthday. They are beautiful and still looking great over a week later.
And here is the bag Leanne gave me.
Thanks Leanne and I promise I won’t tell anyone!
As promised I will give some goodies away to some lucky people. Just leave a comment here to be in the draw and if you link to my blog you will get two chances to win. I have charm packs of Aster Manor and Santoriniand a Moonshine bag pattern. Must remember to take a photo.

Bronwyn Hayes from Red Brolly, Kerrie from XLN and me (again).

Photos were very kindly taken by Terry. I do thank him (I think). We did have a very wonderful time in Melbourne. It’s always good to get away ,catch up with and make new friends, source great fabrics and get new ideas.
In the next post I will be giving away some new fabrics so stay tuned.
As promised I am posting about last weekend. It was great. Caught up with so many people I hadn’t seen for a long, long time. Met some new people, and didn’t stop talking all weekend. Spent lots of money!!! Wonderful catching up with Rebecca, and her Mum and Aunt. We wont leave it so long next time and maybe she will recognise me!
All packed up for this year. But I did take heaps more photos of other stands, so I will post them tomorrow.
I have been lucky enough to have had a four day break over the long weekend. We went to the Deloraine Craft Fair on Friday and then spent the rest of the weekend at St Helens. Deloraine was great, so many terrific crafts people. I even tried my hand at glass bead making but I don’t think I will change crafts for a while.
It was lovely to catch up with Annie at St Helens and to just rest and sew for the weekend.
I took this photo on one of my walks. I think a tree quilt might happen soon.
Saw the Harleys on the way home from a drive to Exeter last weekend. Were they not a magnificent sight!
And this weekend I will be in Melbourne at the AQM checking out all the great fabrics and designs and attending a lecture with McKenna Ryan and several great Australian designers.
Back next week with lots of photos from Melbourne.
