More Quilt Show fun...

Besides seeing all the stunning quilts, catching up with friends, old and new, is always a great part of the Quilt Show at Darling Harbour in Sydney each year.
Some I see more often, some only at the show and some I meet for the first time. It is great recognising each other, catching up on news and planning next meetings. I suppose we are like modern day penpals.
Here are some quick pics...
Maree and the truly delightful Michelle Hill...
 With Chookyblue, Shiralee Sandy and Sandy N (who I spotted working on a stand...felt like a stalker!)...
 Anni from Hatched and Patched (always beautiful, not to mention her SNAG hubby Pete!) with Anita, Chooky and myself...
The very clever Sue Daley who is so generous with her paper piecing knowledge.
And lastly some of the bloggers who met for a chat... great to see you Sandy, Anita, Lynda, Alison, Maree, Sylvia, Trish and Chooky!
Final pics tomorrow!
