AQM and day 7!

A fortnight ago Mum and I were lucky enough to spend the weekend at the Australian Quilt Market (a trade show in Melbourne) with my friends Robyn and Rex who have the business Orange Daisy (www.orangedaisy.com.au)
It was inspiring to see some of the patterns and fabric out there in the market, so many nice new things, my head was swiveling from side to side trying to take it all in.

I thought the Orange Daisy stand looked great. It is a few years since they have been to a market.

The French Collection blocks
The Sewing Circle

Of course no trip to market would be complete without a little retail therapy!!!
I picked up some fabric, felt from Hatched and Patched, 'A walk in the woods' layer cakes, some charm squares, jelly rolls and tone on tone packs. A few other things I can't show here!!!
I was so excited to pick up all 5 issues of Vignette magazine. I also picked up some Rosalie Quinlan books, some Hatched and Patched patterns and notebooks , new scissors and my Homespun diary for 2012!!!
We saw a lot of people there, lovely to catch up with Annie and Pete from Hatched and Patched, Lynette Anderson and Vince, Brenda Ryan and Leo and  Pam and Katie from Cottage Garden threads.

Day 7 - yikes, I delivered 2 gifts today as well as got the shortbread and rocky road to the morning tea at work. Still so much to do, better get to it!!!
