2nd Bloggers Meet in Bathurst

 

On Saturday by bestie Suze and I headed off to Bathurst for
 our second annual Bloggers meet at "The Home Patch"
These pics show some of the 13 Bloggers that attended....
In true Kate and Suze style we arrived a bit later than the
 10am meeting time as we got side tracked at a
 garage sale and a few shops on the way.....He he!
So many things to look at....
 Deb, Myself and Sandy.....
 The girls shopping up a storm.....
Anita, Fiona, Lea, Janice and Chooky.....

Suze and I....What do you have in that bag girlfriend????

Lea, Chooky, Sandy, Yours truly and Anita.....

Suze making some serious purchases and
Sandy and Deb waiting for their turn....

This is the only fabric that I purchased....
I was a good girl as I have to save my $ for my new house...
I will show you what I plan to do with this linen another time..

Then it was off to Chai Wallah for lunch......
Suze's Mushroom Bruschetta....yummmm!
I had vegetable fritters and salad and they were delicious....
Lots of Show and Tell to keep us entertained.....
This is my Hexi Quilt.... 
Susan has hand quilted this beautiful quilt....
Maybe she will give it to me for a house warming present...
And Susan has also just finished her "Tis the Season Quilt"....
 We had 3 SKOW Favourite Things Quilts....
This is Chooky's version, she has done an amazing job....
Janice's version was also gorgeous and beautifully quilted....
Well done Janice.....
My SKOW that I love love love......
Lea showed us a gorgeous antique quilt that she purchased
 from Quilt Market on a recent trip to America.....
It was amazing....Hmm maybe another house warming gift ;)
Chooky also had 3 lovely quilts that belonged to a friend....
We had a little swap and Suze looks pleased with her loot.....
Thanks girls for a great day of shopping, lunch,
 friendship, chatter and lots of laughs....
I think I should make a special mention to Chooky's
 sister (Little Chicken) who was a lot of fun and just a bit
cheeky and fitted in with the group really well....
Can't wait for our next get together....
I hope to see you all at GDITC in March 2013....
Until next time, Happy Stitching
 
Kate
