Super Saturday

Yesterday I was asked to join some lovely blogging friends at the Full Moon Hotel Sandgate.
The meeting was to meet Holly from Nimble Thimble-Stitchery Do all the way from Canada. Holly is so delightful and has been enjoying her trip down under.
It was such a fun get together....I was keeping a little secret under my hat.....Chooky from Chookyblue was coming to. I was so excited to meet her after all this time. Almost had to sew my lips together to stop from spilling the beans.....the next big surprise was Lynette Anderson.....I have always loved Lynette's work and one of my favourite quilts is one of Lynette's designs.... thrilled is a word that comes to mind....and they bought gifties! How lucky were we.
Chooky's lovely cards and Lynette's newest fabric range in a sweet charm pack.
.
 Never ever thought that I would be discussing one of "MY" quilts or projects with Lynette Anderson. Took about surrreal! Lynette was so lovely and encourging about my book too.....still smiling!
I was under strict instructions to bring extra books and my quilt from the book...so I happily obliged.
Lots of lovely people wanted me to sign their copies....felt like a bit of a celeb. LOL!
We were a very jolly bunch....
Huge thanks to Susan from Susan's Sewing Space for organising it. Thanks so much to Teresa from All Things Vintage for the photos....some silly person left her camera on the table at home.
And thanks so much for asking me, I had a wonderful time.
Ok back to reality....I think some quiet soothing hand quilting is in order to restore balance.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
