Sew It Together…

Hmm things have been a bit quiet around here, but it's all good!
I've been away for over two weeks, and, sorry blog, I haven’t even had time to miss you!

What have I been up to? Well...I’ve been meeting with other quilters, knitters and crafty types, gone shopping for quilting goodies, spent time talking about quilting and  of course done lots of sewing and quilting.
I went to Canberra the previous weekend for Sew It Together (June 8-10) and Friday just gone (June 15) involved a trip to the Sydney Stitches and Craft show. In between there’s been a good deal of sewing going on! Oh what a blissful time!
Sew It Together was a great weekend that started with a shopping trip on the Friday to Addicted to Fabric, Bison Pottery and then Shop Handmade. there was also a few hours at the Canberra Handmade Market
I don’t quite know where to start…
perhaps with the cutest little name badge ever made (by Kylie)
or a bit of Cass cleverness to assign the swap groups
or the goodies that I came home with. Thanks to Amy, Joanne, Lily, Wendy and Michelle - I'm not sure which Michelle to link to (*embarrased*).
All of you are clever, talented and generous!
or the special SIT goody bag from some lovely sponsors…

So many things to make and do!
Doesn’t this look so much better on my knitting book?…thanks Clare!IMG_4962IMG_4961
…or perhaps some of the shopping from those Saturday stalls…

Yes!...more fabric...but it's oh so pretty and quite addictive...

I want to do it all over again, with all those lovely ladies who sew and knit and crochet and design and talk and laugh and befriend! Thank you Sheridan and  Donna for making it all possible. I'll be there next year!

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

PS the Craft Show "show and tell" will turn up in a later post :)
