Home Again

Arrived home this afternoon after driving to Perth for our first Bloggers Meet and Craft Show…


Bloggers meet May 2013


From left...DD Sandra, from Playing Tiddleywinks , Anthea, from Hibiscus Stitches,  Me ,Tracee from Quilt Kitty Loves Life , Julia from Julia's Place and her DIL Janete..
It was also nice to meet Tracey from Outback Craftaholic who could only stay awhile ( so missed out on the photo) as she was on driver duty  for WAQA as the Workshop Convener.

After coffee and chat we went into the Craft Show for some shopping and afterwards we met up for lunch. Then back into the show to look at the  amazing display of quilts…
