Well, what a day we had a the Queensland Quilt Show. My friends (Sandra and Margret) and I caught the train down to Brissy very early in the morning, and got to the Convention Center about a half an hour after it opened. After a quick pit stop and coffee we headed for the quilt display, 3hrs later still looking at all the beautiful quilts, it was time for lunch break. We then took off into the retail therapy area and blew and few bob (spent lots of money). I had to get some rulers and parts for the longarm, so that was my budget gone. Mind you I did buy a little fabric also. I found some fabric that has skulls and roses on it, so nice and so unusual.
Margret was after monkey fabric for her soon to be grandson's quilt and Sandra bought fabric, a book and threads. We had to recharge at about 4pm for another coffee before a final dash around the stalls before leaving.
We headed out to South Bank and went for a walk on the boardwalk while waiting for Mr J to drive down from the Coast. We had arranged to have dinner at Ahmets a Turkish Restaurant. The food is delicious.
To finish the evening we had ice cream while strolling the pathways in the park before driving back home. What a great day.
I hope you all had a great weekend,
