Wow, what a difference 24 hours makes.
After my little rant last night I found out this morning that I don't have to work at Southern Cross Needlework on Saturday so I can go on the bus to the Sydney Show. !!!!
Well, you should have seen the happy dance. I was really lucky that there were two places left so I asked my friend Sarah to come and she didn't have to be asked twice. So it's all go and the pangs of anxiety have all gone. I think I really have an addiction.

Hi, my name is Leanne. I am a quilting addict. lol...

I forgot to share my day out at the Australian Quilt Market in Sydney a couple of weeks ago.
Jody, Ally, Jan and myself headed to Sydney and met my Sister there. We were all ready to make the dash to the Moda stand to get ourselves some fabric goodness. I grabbed a fat 1/4 bundle of Cuzco by Kate Spain and a 4 pack of layer cakes of Simply Colour by V & Co. I have lots of ideas for this lot...

My Sister & I in front of the beautiful Harbour Bridge.


Some of the old buildings in "The Rocks"...


Jan, Myself, Jody & Ally..

I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I walked around the corner and saw this quilt at 2 green Zebras.
It was quilted by Angela Walters of Quilting Is My Therapy for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Her quilting is such an inspiration and to see it up close was a dream come true for me. (yes, I am easily excited)


We had a great day !!

Only two sleeps and I'll be in Sydney again...yay...

Happy Quilting
Leanne xo
