Audrey and Maude go to the Show!

It's been a busy week with a trip up to Sydney for the Stitches and Craft show. And how much fun! We met so many lovely bloggers and got to share our Living Creatively 'Independant Crafters' area with these wonderful and talented girls.

The amazing staff from Living Creatively waved their magic wands and created this lovely space for us to work (play) in.

Here's all our patterns on display with some very pretty paper flowers Cathy made.

And of course Poppy and her puppies were there with a bowl of black cats to snack on!

We were also joined by Justine from Mixtape zine.

We also briefly caught up with Nikki but she was mobbed by her fans pretty much after arrival and I didn't get a decent photo of her stand.

On Friday night we got to do something that Cathy and I have wanted to do in ages. We had dinner with Belinda and Jade. This photo was taken just for our friend Anna. We so wish you could have joined us Anna! A great night of pasta, gelati and much hilarity! Thanks girls, Cathy and I loved finally meeting you both and really appreciated all your help.

So thanks everyone who came by for a visit during the show, it was fantastic to meet you all. Thanks also to all the other crafty girls who joined us and were heaps of fun.

But the biggest thanks must go to all the wonderful Living Creatively staff who gave us the opportunity to participate. We feel so incredibly lucky to be a part of such a great and amazing craft scene and look forward to doing it all again next year.
