Home again after attending bothCraft and Sewing Showsat Sydney and Brisbane. We experimented with some new black mesh extended wall displays, which still need a little fine-tuning, but I think will work and save us time in the future. All the displays stay on them for transporting between shows. The idea is that these travel as you see them here, then we simply have to hang up. As with anything new, we are changing to suit our needs as we discover what works and what doesn't. What do you think?
The new Restyle Studio was very well attended for all sessions every day. Kate from Babylock (shown above) and myself presented numerous ideas to revamp last year's casual wardrobe to this year's fashion - with easy ideas for those with little experience in sewing.
Travelled home on Monday then early Tuesday morning, dragged myself out of bed to drive 90 mins away to attend a very important function. GRANDPARENTS' DAY at Hunter's Pre-School. The delight on his face when he saw me walk in was enough reward for the effort (given the fact we'd arrived home at 2.30am!) As you will note, I wasn't too keen on the hand painting let alone the green slimey goo you see in the background. MOI who hates getting her hands dirty...........
Of course, everyone had to sing & dance amongst shrills of laughter trying to perfect the co-ordination of the actions. I was also relieved to see others having difficulty in getting back up off the floor!
Oh to be so young and innocent?
Next will be some of the entries in the Qld. Quilters Challenge from Brisbane Show.
Judy & John Hall live on 100 acres in a small country town, The Rock, (near Wagga Wagga in the Riverina) N.S.W. Australia – inland, about halfway between Melbourne and Sydney. Here they run their Mail Order business as well as an Emu Farm and breed sheep.
Judy loves sewing in general, anything to do with a sewing machine be it quilting, embroidery, home décor, crafts or clothing. She holds Retreats at The Rock as well as teaching and lecturing on the Show Circuit in every State of Australia and writes editorials for many National Magazines.
