Brisie Craft and Quilt Show

In the middle of the Brisbane Craft and Quilt Fair.
My 'big job' is to sit and stitch on stand B07 at Catherinas Country Collections.
Woohoo! Doesn't get any better than that!!
Catching up with some old school friends (bestie from Year 8), kid sister of year 12 closest friend, neighbours from primary school, not to mention all the wonderful friends I've made through the joy of stitching over the last 20 years.

Carina's stand is chocker block with heaps of lovely things (great fabric etc so gotta be really careful LOL)

Here's some 'weird angle photos of my things (taken from where I'm sitting..

Still LOVE my little girl zingers...

One of my latest patterns, 'the Stitchers Quartet'.

My hearts and dreams quilts with the little 'Stitchery cushions' (Tilda of course and gotta say I LOVE THESE)

Now onto some amazing photos of the quilts at the show. First photo is of the quilt then following photo is of the designers/ makers details etc.

Love this one!!!

This one blew my mind!


Then onto some smaller ones

I can never go past a chook!!

This elephant was 3D -fabulous

All the detail was brilliant

Please note this was made by a 9yr old

Never can walk past a crazy patch




Judith Keone, I just love this!!! My choice from the lot!!!

Just had to take photos of this stand...

Such amazing colors and stitching and hand work.(Was so grateful I was allowed to take a couple of photos to share!!!)

Got the details for those that love it too

Then I went chasing Teddies!!!

Soooo cute

Lisa now runs classes at Moggill if you are interested! I'm going to go!!!

Lisa loves Tilda too ( but I have more than her (ner ner Lisa - inside joke LOL)

Lots of Furry bundles of love to come out of this basket!

Hope to see you over the weekend!!!

Wow what a wonderful weekend

Warwick is alive this weekend at Glenrose Patchwork. A wonderful time to be sitting in a glorious garden where the veges are grown right next to the roses that are in flower

The girls get together and create this annual event in aid of breast cancer and this year have added prostrate cancer.

A totally gorgeous raffle

Sausage sizzle (photos taken at the end of the busy day)

Surrounded by beautiful gardens

Quilts abound

And what a glorious setting

Tucked in under shady tents

Even the shed was on display

And made a lovely gallery

The flowers are out

And even the statues are enjoying the day

With the Bed and Breakfast cottages open for you to visit

Glenrose Patchwork shop is open

Bella Embroidery is here

And I am loving the weekend catching up with so many friends (everyone had gone home when I actually remembered to take some photos)

I won three great prizes in the cent auction so you can imagine the noise... So a great day was had yesterday and another one is happening today so if you are up for a lovely day out, please come say hello!
if you mention you have read my blog, when you get to the show in Warwick today, there is a free gift waiting for you!

We hope to see you and I will try to get some more photos today.
I hope you are having a very happy day in such glorious weather
