Sydney Quilt & Craft Show 2014

On Friday afternoon I headed to Sydney to met up with my bestie Sam @ a cupful of stitches. We spent Friday night catching up & stitching in the warmth of our motel.
 
After a late night, we were up bright & early to head into the Quilt & Craft show at Glebe Island. We arrived around 8.30am, it was a gorgeous morning & the new venue didn't disappoint. Looking across at the harbour bridge as we climbed the steps was just beautiful.
 
We wandered around taking it all in and not a single purchase was made - Wow, that is soooooo not like me!
 
We headed into the quilt show where we thought about what I was going back to buy. 
It was lovely wandering around and I could feel myself becoming excited about getting back to a few projects that I have been neglecting (it has been very quiet on the stitching front here, due to lots of other stuff going on)
 
There were some really beautiful quilts on display - not all to my own taste in colours or designs but I could see all the love that had gone into each an everyone. I'm sure that they will look amazing in the homes of the owners. 

Now that we had be inspired it was time to go and support the designers & store holders lol 

These are my purchases - shhhh don't tell my hubby. 


On Sunday we decided to head back into Darling Harbour to wander around and take in the sights before heading our separate ways.
It was a great weekend full of stitching, laughs & late nights full of catching up.
I can't wait to do it all again soon.

Until next time
Happy Stitching xox
