Melbourne Craft Show

I was too excited to eat breakfast on Thursday morn - cos I was getting the kids out the door off to school, to scooting myself onto the train to visit a lovely group of ladies at the Craft Fair at Jeff's Shed!

Cathy from Cabbage Quilts invited me and even waited for me inside the door - lovely gal with the most beautiful blonde hair!
We also met: (front row) Rita from Red Pepper Quilts, Lurline (from WA, no less!) from Lurline's Place, Kate from One Flew Over, Andi from Patch Andi
(back row) Karen (Rita's sister - a professional quilter!), Miriam from Yellow Roses, Cathy and Me!
A quick coffee and lots of chat - Lizzie from A House in the Country and her friend Jen came later, from Ballarat.

I spoke to Jan from Sewjourn helping out at Somerset Patchwork stall - busy busy lady - she still needs a good cleaner for her place in Lancefield, if anyone is needing some extra pocketmoney - and then bumped into Louise from Lululollylegs! Gee, crafty women are ace!

Of course I forgot to take my camera - and now it won't hook up with the puta - so I won't show you my goodies just yet - will wait for Super Hubbie to fix issue - lets just say sore feet could not damper my day - seeing all the women on the train coming home fishing in their bags for their new BOM patterns and their scrap kits and their wool and their brochures (just like me!) made me smile!

Sounds like a great day Bronwyn. Spending time with other crafters is good for the soul.
