On Friday I made my way to the Royal Exhibition Building for AQC. But what was more exciting is that I was finally going to meet Maria from Life On The Block. Maria and her daughter Sandra (Playing Tiddleywinks) had come over from Western Australia and are spending a few days here. Maria and I have been corresponding with each other for about 5 years after we were teamed up as swap partners in 2011.
We also met up with Helen (Helen's Patchwork Passion) and Sue (no blog). Of course, there were lots of other people
I bumped into but too many to mention!
Finally got a photo of Sue!
I bet you're wondering what I bought at AQC. Nothing very exciting! Some white hanky linen and a bottle of Bubble Jet Set for making my quilt labels as I had run out. There were so many beauftiful things that I just couldn't decide. I only had one thing on my list and that was straw needles. I didn't find the ones I wanted so that was one thing less. My main reason for going was to meet Maria and Sandra.
Maria and Sandra came to our place last night for dinner. Mel was supposed to join us so she could also meet the girls but unfortunately she is in hospital again. Sending you get well wishes Mel. We missed you.
Don't you just love my new little friend!
He was a gift from Maria and Sandra and was beautifully made by Maria. I've been wanted to make myself one of these for a long time. Now I don't have to!
He's now living with the rabbits!
I've had a lovely couple of days spending time with Maria and Sandra. Hopefully, one day I'll get to visit them in WA.
