Patchwork Heaven....

We were really excited to meet one of our "Stitching Idol's"  - Yoko
such a beautiful lady and her stitching is just devine


Oh Yes Peg and Dale you couldn't contain your excitement either when you are pictured here with 
Lynette Anderson.
she now knows all about you!!!!


 Some of my favourites below









This photo doesnt do the quilt justice, but close up the work is impecable and soooo much detail 
Yes done of my favourties - Yoko which is why I was over the moon to meet her.


 Just look at some of the gorgeous quilts on display!!  (Susan you will love this one)
 the detail - just blows you away


 and this one below - all with raw edge fabric pieced together to form a "scene"
unreal

Every type of cat for the cat lover

 Another well know Stitcher - Akemi.
Oh and I bought the kit for this bag hanging up
(she wouldn't sell me the finished version)


 "Awh Dale - can you believe this - we are in our element"
Having fun sitting on the counter when there are 1000s of people walking past
oh well!!!!

 just so many quilts to look at
These ladies were making up a kit for Suzie - "made to order"





Oh we were  beside ourselves - such gorgeous things everywhere.

 Yoko doing some autographing.
the crowds inside - such fun

I am in the perfect industry to organise it!!!!!
