Aussies in town

Jennifer from Bronze Wombat is in town with her DH to visit their son and Kiera Oona. I have been busy showing her the quilty side of life here in Toronto. We have been to a couple of quilt shops and the Creative Festival this past weekend. I won't show you my fabric that was purchased, but shall we say that there has been a vast enhancement to my stash ......

Today, my DH and I hosted Jennifer and her DH to lunch at my place and to a viewing of my completed quilts and some finished tops and lots of UFO's that have never been posted on my blog. Let's just say that she had an advance peek of stuff to come next year.

Here we are in our basement (which is something that Aussies don't have back in Australia). Did any of you notice that fine cast on Jennifer's arm? She fell and broke it last week. It was certainly not the souvenir that she was hoping to bring back home.

... and this is part of the aftermath of my show and tell. Even Hank is probably wondering 'what happened'?
Friday morning, Jennifer, Kiera Oona, Debra (from Patchwork Sanity) and myself are going to a quilt show in Ajax and then lunch afterwards. Should be a lot of fun.
Have a great day!
Edit ..... they are visiting their son (not only Jennifer's son) ..... oops.

Im certainly looking forward to going to my first quilt show...since Ive never been to one.

Its even going to be more interesting when Jennie, Kevin, my other half, and I all treck out to Lens Mills on Sunday for some shopping in Cambridge.

Btw, you were right...the knitting skulls is AWESOME! I really need to think of a way to make a 'Dias dos los Muertos" quilt with all the wonderfull skully fabric I'm accumulating

The sneak peek of your projects has just wetted my appetite for more! I love how very incredibly creative you are and looking at your blog. Enjoy your time with your friends while they're here, (hopefully no more broken bones as souvenier's, lol). Cindy

What a grand time. Nothing like a joyful show and tell!!! I'm so happy to read of your friendship shared. Sorry about the cracked arm - poor Jennifer. :<

...you made me laugh with your comment about the vast stash enhancement. Ha, ha, ha. Very unlike you, ha?

I would love to have been in on that visit! Your show and tell would put me down under! I can see that I have missed a lot on your blog while I was gone. Great stuff!
