Stitches and Craft

Warning photo heavy! Yesterday I went in to the Convention centre and met up with Blogging and Stitching friends for the annual Queensland Quilters quilt show and the Stitches and Craft fair.
Friend Liz was up from Melbourne......
Fiona came down from her hill in Toowoomba and Jeanette from Ipswich way.
Lynda was there too......
Lovely Robyn our selfie Queen managed to squeeze us all in the one!

You would think we would know better but we could not resist playing on the 3D photo set. I blame Fiona Robinson!
I am soooo easily led!But great fun. I did bring home some supplies.....mainly clamshell addititons. Plus some gifties which I can't these fabrics.
The quilts were beautiful and I think I will do Part one and Part two. The Challenge they had this year was Australian Flora and Fauna......very clever every one. These were favourites.
This quilt was very interesting....a whole cream piece with black felt dots.....I am sure you will know who it is straight away.
Loved these feathers.....
and feather related too.....
I shall share some more next post.
I am always so proud to be a needlewoman when you see how creative and clever quilters are.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
