The Craft Fair was on here in Melbourne over the weekend
and I met up with a few blogger ladies.
(I didn't get any photos.......sorry)

Miriam - Yellow Roses
Christine - McDonalds Patch

 It was nice to meet you ladies and have a chat and no doubt I will see
you all in blogland.

Now the other reason for attending
the show was for this (below). I have been eyeing one of these off
for a long time and finally I have my own.

So I have been busy playing with my new toy, haven't done any 
sewing yet just cutting, but boy this is addictive and sooo
fast  !!

Also I have been seeing everyones blocks for the Farmers Wife Sampler
Quilt and decided to join in the fun, don't think I will be able to keep up so will 
dawdle along at my own pace. So any tips from those who have already started
would be much appreciated
Not sure which fabrics I will make it in yet.

Have a great day !

Hello Mandy, I too went to the show and thought the quilts were outstanding. I took heaps of photos and you can check them on my blog. I got myself a fabric cutter and its fantastic..I'm gradually getting more dies to make different quilts.

I have only just discovered the Farmer's Wife quilt myself. You might want to join the yahoo group 'farmerswifesampler' as they have been doing it for over a year and they have great advise. Also there is a flickr group 'The Farmers Wife Quilalong' that you might be interested in. I have done only two blocks and I am paper piecing mine I can see this being a year or two long project for me, but it should be fun.
