Sydney Craft and Quilt Show

Paddy and I headed to Sydney on Thursday so we could go to the Craft show on Friday. We had a great day. Lots of lovely shopping and looking and very tired legs at the end of all that walking! Here are some views of the many stalls from above.

 We, of course, headed straight to Hatched and Patched to see Anni and to see all her gorgeous books, kits and all the lovely samples. Her kits were far too tempting and I came home with lots to make from her lovely new book.
 There were some great displays too. I wanted to eat these licorice allsorts. These were on a display of creative clothing.

 These wonderful tea cosies looked fabulous! The author of these great knitting books was signing them on this stall. Aren't they just amazing!




 One of the highlights of the day was catching up with fellow bloggers at a special meeting at lunch time. Here are Fiona and Chookyblue.
 Here I am with Fiona, Dzintra and Patricia....thanks Susan for letting me know.
 It was great to catch up with Kate too. It was handy that we were colour coordinated.
 Nice to see Sandy as well.
 Isn't it amazing how many of us blog!
 The best name badge belonged to Alison.
It was very special to catch up with lots of the ladies whose blogs I enjoy and to meet some others as well. Thanks Chooky for organising the meeting. Then it was back to more serious shopping!

So close... I think I missed you at the blog meet! That's Patricia from Too many eggs in the photo. It was a great day out though, we were exhausted too. I did meet Audrey at The Hatched & Patched stand. - it was wonderful to meet so many bloggers.
