Easter Quilt Extravaganza

On Saturday I headed off to the Brighton Easter Quilt Extravaganza.
I set up Helen's trade table as she had to take No.3  to a ballet lesson first.

This event was well attended as you can see from the photo below

Beside the Hugs 'n Kisses table was my gorgeous friend Fee
Fee had some great bargains on the day!

Pauline from Calico Crossroads was even there (sorry no photo), she was still buzzing from her trip away to Koch's Boot Camp. I bought some lovely fabrics from her stand, Lecien Basics and a lovely horse print, perfect print for my latest snugglybug block.

There was also a new to me shop from New Norfolk called Patchwork Cafe, Janine had some beautiful goods for sale and I couldn't help myself and had to buy these lovelies

From Helen's stand I picked up one of Cori's Patterns
Love this quilt!

My Mum was there too with friends Heather and Polly, Heather gave me some lovely vintage buttons and Mum gave me the cutest little crocheted doily bag for storing a cotton reel, it stops the real from unravelling and you just pull the string out as you need it. I also got a scarf but I haven't got a photo to share.
There were lots of other traders there too from Tassie, it was a great event and a tribute to the lovely ladies that organised the day!

Sunday afternoon held some excitement, a bingle right at our driveway, thankfully no-one was injured, just a bruised ego for the young man driving the ute and lots of property damage and upset visitors to our neighbours

The extravaganza lived up to it's name. Always come home smiling from these events. Looks like you are prepared for a few new projects.
Nasty ending to a happy post, but thankfully no-one was hurt.
Enjoy your day, we have a really wet one here.

Looks like it was a fun day glad the accident was not at your place I'd hate for your lovely big fountain to be damaged that really would be a disaster
