A show, a sew and lots of laughs....

 
Last week I spent 5 days at the Newcastle Stitches & Craft Fair. I was there representing the Central Coast Modern Quilt Guild. We were asked by the show organisers if we would like to exhibit some of our quilts and have an area to sew....
We had so much fun. It was great meeting new people and sharing our love of quilting. My fellow guild members joined me each day to sew and chat and sew and chat and shop of course...
 
This is our stand area...it was huge !!

 
 
 These are the blocks we made over 4 days....
 
 
This is how we are finishing the blocks off.... I love them !!! They will be 2 charity quilts...

 
And I was surprised by a visit from a blogging friend Cardygirl. This is the first time we have met outside the blogosphere. We live so close to one another I'm sure we will be catching up again very soon...

 
 
I have my sewjo back big time now. I have been sewing heaps and of course I quilt every day cause that's my job...It's great having a job doing something I love to do...I feel very lucky :)
 
Happy Quilting
