CAG Quilt Show

We had a great time this weekend.  TWO QUILT SHOWS!  We were in "Quilter heaven".
Saturday at Monbulk (see our previous post) and Sunday at Castlemaine.
Please head over to Buddy & Me's blog for some wonderful pics of quilts. 

Here's a photo you don't get very often!  It's of us and our friend Rose who was one of the amazing volunteers at the show.

We would like to thank each and every person we spent time with to us over the weekend.  We had a great time catching up with friends, some of whom we hadn't seen for a while. We also had some really positive feedback about our designs and felt great support.  We are so grateful.

Of course a trip to Castlemaine is not complete without a trip to Threadbear (and perhaps a purchase of farbic!!!)
Just a little this time for Lou.

and for Lisa:

Of course we had to stop at the Antique shops too.  The Restorers Barn in Castlemaine and Mo's Antiques in Chewton.  Both of whom managed to have our purses opening again..... we can't resist fabric and old crap!

We are hoping Lisa's son, Adam, will do something special with our purchases and as soon as he works his magic we will show you our treasures. Can't wait!!!!!!!

Monbulk CFA quilt show

We had a great day today at the annual Monbulk CFA quilt show. This is a wonderful fundraiser with all proceeds supporting the amazing men and women at Monbulk Country Fire Association. 
A huge thank you to Karen of Mrs Martin's Quilt Shop for inviting us and for the HUGE amount of work she put into the day.
Here are some photos of our stall:

We spent the day demonstrating a few of our favorite products. And of course chatting! We caught up with some wonderful friends and met HEAPS of people.

We will share some pictures next week of what we bought from Barb of Theodora's Cleave:and Jo of Sewjo Designs

We spent the day next to Leanne of Petals and PatchesShe was absolutely lovely and her designs are wonderful.

And one more of our area:

Oh, did you notice the quilt top hiding in the top left of the above picture?? That's Lou's version of our new quilt. It will be available at AQC. 
 Jump on Instagram for more pics from today. 
Perhaps we will see you tomorrow at Castlemaine for the Appliqué Group's first ever exhibition.  Should be another great day.         Lou & Lisa
