Craft and Quilt Show Road Trip-Part 1

I set off from Orange at 5am on Friday morning to meet up
 with my travelling buddies for the day in Lithgow, 
so we could continue on our journey to Sydney....
I spent a lovely day with Deb and Susan.....
Here we are out the front of Anni's stall at the Fair....
I was a Craft and Quilt show virgin so imagine 
my delight when I saw all of this......
And these!!!!!!
Here I am with Sue Daley.....
I was very excited to meet Sue as I wanted to go to 
"Girls Day in the Country" in May but a family wedding
 prevented me from going and meeting her....
I enjoyed a bit of retail therapy with Sandy....
Oops! Back at Anni's stall again....
The quilts were amazing and I wish I could
 show you them all but there were just so many....
So here are just a few...
I even found one that Bart would have liked....
Can you see all the horses quilted around the edge....
Just amazing....
4pm and time to rest those weary legs and have a cuppa
 and something sweet with the sweet Chookyblue....
The girls and I in the car park wondering how we are
 going to fit my shopping bag in the car....Ha ha!
Selfies in the car on the way home....
We said our goodbyes in Lithgow and
 I set off on the rest of my journey....
10pm saw me park my car in the garage at home and
 head inside for a cuppa and well earned sleep....
Stay tuned to see my posts about the 
"Bloggers Meet Up"and "My Purchases"
Until next time, Happy Stitching

Kate, so fantastic that you had such a great time - & with such lovely friends... How wonderful to have met Sue Daley. It looks like your bag will be breathing a sigh of relief when you empty it of all the goodies that came home with you...

I worked out that I hadn't been to a craft show for seven years. Wish I could have ditched work and gone with you. Looks like you had a great time and that shopping bag looks awesome! I suppose there's always next year.
