A no-sew day....

.. but that was because I went on a road trip...

in a brand new bus.... it was on it's maiden trip... I suggested on a popular social media site that I could now be classed as a maiden.... there were some frightfully rude comments! hmmmmm - social media can ruin reputations ......

... the Jacaranda's are looking stunning....


Off to the Brisbane craft show... the highlight of my day was meeting up with friends.....


Lynda, Val, Teresa, Tatyana, Sandi, Marilyn Noela, Michelle, Susan, Jane
 - new friends and old - I am so very lucky... so many lovely and inspiring women....

 ... just a bit of giggling and fun going on....


I went with the Toowoomba Quilters and as a group we got a freebie....
(it just made me giggle!)


.. here is a much better picture stolen from Teresa's blog....


 Michelle and I look a bit naughty here.... and my 'water' looks a bit dodgy to say the least!
(I like chunks of lemon .. and sometimes gin.....)
(thanks for the picture Teresa.... I love it!)



 I did do some shopping.. found backing and binding I wanted for my A4A quilt top....


... and a pattern book I might need in the future....


and some quilting related supplies to play with....


Happy hour on the way home in the bus.... (for you Teresa)



Righto, Gotto Go... I have new toys to play with.....

It made my day to see you and I'm so glad you got up early and made the long trek down to see us. Love it when we all get together. Hmmm what was in that drink you had??? I love that photo of you and Michelle... it makes me smile every time I look at it. Love your purchases too. That quote is terrific. I slept for 13 hours last night. I think that is a record for me... must have needed it after 2 full days of catching up with friends and retail therapy!! Thanks again for the catch up... hope we get to do it again soon xx

Josie said...
