also some of Libby Richardson's little stitcheries.
We went to Queensland on Thursday and patient DH allowed me to visit some stores that I have not been to before as we so rarely travel to Queensland.
Stop 1 - Patchwork Angel @ Forest Glen on the Sunshine coast
and these are the little bits I picked ....
then the 2nd stop was off to Lynette Anderson's store - "Little Quilt Store"
now this was a priority having wished to one day visit.
and I was served by this lovely lady whom I have often spoken to on the phone so it was lovely to meet Sae.
The shop was just delightful and everything I thought it would be.
Everything was just so what I love.
Then we continued on the highway to Bundaberg and we pulled up the front of this shop,
which I thought was empty.
"The Quilters Shack"
however, I was wrong, and look how full this big shop was.
but..... to my astonishment after speaking to the lovely lady who was serving me and hearing a very "familiar" story about the floods in previous months , I then asked her name and she said Jenny!!!!! whom I them realised was from my online stitching group.
so of course a picture was in order.
(Luckily there is a tackle shop next door so hubby amused himself there for a while).
Next Stop was Hervey Bay and one very patient husband in tow, whilst I quickly ducked into this shop "Dewdrop Inn".
Owls being a favourite - I picked up a little kit , along with some ever popular Hesian.
Then backtracking home the following day DH allowed me just to quickly re-visit Little Quilt store,
(how lucky was I - in my element)
and look who I ran into - also miles from home
Cheryl (Kayly) a Nundle Annual commuter.
such small world.
You know the story right face/different place!!!!
and so.... back home I now am, and finind new homes for all the "little bits".
