Okay, I promise this will be one of the last posts about the Stitches and Craft Show in Melbourne.

I just had to post these lovely photos of Chookyblue, Ric Rac and Flower Garden, aka Donna, Jodie and Annie. Tracey was also with these girls but managed to avoid being photographed.

I tried to do it last post but blogger would not let me!!!! These girls were such a hoot - I even got asked for my autograph see this blog for details. As you can see, I don't think they stopped talking or laughing the whole day.

We had such a great time on Friday when so many bloggers popped by the Living Creatively stand to say hello. It was great to meet so many fellow bloggers and swap 'Moo' cards. I have quite a collection now. Some of the girls we met who were on the stand with us and just dropped by were the lovely Corrie and little Keira - (she is even cuter in real life), Stephanie, Stacey, who was having a blog meet with Jo, and wondered whether she was going to be an axe murderer or not. It was great to finally meet Jo, who I have heard and read so much about, Tamara, of course, Virginie, who makes the loveliest jewellery and felt bags and brooches and is delightfully French, Angela of Miss Buttons fame, Bianca and her beautiful fabric at Hollabee and also some links for Goccos, Kristen with her gorgeous fabric and products she makes, Martine - you have to check out her gorgeous crochet baskets, Kris from Townmouse who I got heaps of tips from on applique, Amelia, and of course our gorgeous Fi who fed us on chocolate to keep our sugar levels up and kept us laughing, and Jenny, who brought in cake everyday that she had made although on Sunday, her wonderful husband brought in a beautiful apricot slice that he had iced. Thanks Richard it was fantastic.

The last photo is of me and Louise's little sign at the Show. Guess I had better get started on writing some patterns, we can't disappoint our adoring fans.



Gotta go.

Wish I could have hung out with you for more than just the one day. Friday sounds like fun. It's always great to meet other bloggers - seems they all dropped by that day.

Cathy, you and Louise obviously had way too much fun! Lucky you. I am so sad I missed you but I will come into the shop after the heatwave. Good luck with this venture you both deserve the success.

It was great to meet you! I was sure to check out Jo from a distance first to make sure she wasn't hiding a weapon about her person.

HI! I met you at the Stitches and Craft market, with my daughter and her friend. We were admiring your fabulous green, black and white aprons. Would love to know where we can get Audrey and Maude patterns, but particularly interested in the classes for kids that you thought you might run. My daughter was so inspired! Thank you!

I'm loving all of your pics from the craft show... They're gorgeous and it almost makes me feel like I was there too... Isn't Chookyblue/Donna such a hoot??? I had the pleasure of meeting her at a quilt expo in Dubbo a while back, a gorgeous and vibrant lady to say the least!!!
Can't wait to see some more of Audrey and Maude...
