Burnie Friendship Day

Today I went to the Burnie Friendship Day organised by the Material Girls and Burnie Piecemakers. It had a Christmas in July theme and was a great day. The best bit was spending time with blogging friends I don't see as often as I'd like. 

I took lots of photos most of which were really horrible. Some people might never speak to me again if they were posted so I will be kind! These are the best of a really 'crappy' lot!

There was lots of yummy food,


 a display of Christmas quilts ...

 
 
and lots of cute Santas. 
There was Show and Tell,


presents ... 
 

and reindeer. 

There were decorations,

 
a name tag competition (isn't Sarah's awesome)
  

and more gorgeous Santas. 
  
I love this one. 


And of course there was an array of traders to tempt us with their wares. 

Sarah from Patchworks Plus and her mum Gail made these pretty Vintage Modern quilts and ...


had lots of lovely Tilda fabrics and kits on their stand.


There were also lots of lovely goodies on sale from Wells and the Fabric Cupboard.


 I may have been a bit naughty in the spending department, but that will have to wait for another post. Bye.

  20. Hi Christine. I've just spent a lovely evening catching up on your blog. I don't get your posts sent to my email address and I'm not very good at going to my Dashboard to see all the latest posts, so I'm WAY behind! I now have a list a mile long of things I want to make, thanks to all the photos of your beautiful projects! Thank you so much for all the inspiration!!

  24. Hi Christine,
    Thanks for visiting our blog and leaving a comment, your Christmas in July Friendship Day sounds like lots of fun, with so many cute projects. My sisters and I have actually made ourselves the Christmas cones with the elves and reindeer on them - they look so cute hanging up together at Christmas!
    That pink cross jelly roll quilt is also beautiful, I really like the colours. Do you know if it's a particular pattern?
