Dubbo Quilt Show

Above are some gorgeuos fabrics from the Parisienne Cats range that I bought from The Cottage On the Hill and the little wooden thing in the foreground is a tapemeasure. How cute - i bought several so I have some for gifts - I should keep one for my 50th post giveaway i think. (it may be an antique by then!!)

Chookyblue and I travelled to Dubbo on Friday. While Chookyblue did jobs and had photos developed I went for some seroius retail therapy. I neede a white summer top. Somehow I now have three white summer tops. Lucky (and happy) me! We had dinner with Dragonfly and On The Hill and a few other friends. Great food, great company and a great time had by all. Thanks to on The Hill for organising dinner.

Dragonfly hosted Chookyblue and I for the night - thank you very much. We were up bright and early and at the quilt show just after it opened.
Lots of stalls to look at and lots of quilts to admire. It was lovely meeting some of the girls who exhibited their works.

I did a little bit of shopping, including this table runner kit. my lounge/ dining area is soft pinks and greens.

Every time I add a link the previous one disappears, so there are no links today I'm afraid.
Take care until next time.

Great clear photos Patch.
Pitty your links aren't doing what they are told.
I'm impressed with another post though.
Great to see you highlighted on my bloglines.
I had you, Chookyblue and Narromine highlighted this arvo.
What a treat.

Welcome to blogland, Patch! It seems from what you and Chookyblue say that you reallly had a nice time at the quilt expo.
I am curious to see what you will make out of the cat fabric range. Take care.
