It's that time of the year again, our local quilt show is on this weekend. It's always a really good weekend, albeit a very busy one and we're hoping to top the over 1000 visitors we had last year. There's a very nice little blurb on the Homespun Blog here about the show. If you can make it up on Saturday or Sunday, come and say hi, I'll be there all weekend....

You won't be able to miss me, I've been making name tags for us. The theme this year is Summer Daze, so I've made Dazzies ! You know Daisies :o)

Cute huh...!!

Do you remember this little baby...... won me a first prize last year...! I'm not expecting anything this year though, I do have a couple of quilts in but really just for the fun of it.

Hope to see you there over the weekend, looks like it's going to be cold and wet so what better way to spend it than looking at some awesome work.....

Oh yes, there's lots of trading tables too....sigh, stash building coming up....

ps.....nearly forgot, there's a quilt raffle too, gotta love that.........

Good luck with your quilt show Lizzie, I hope the weather doesn't keep the crowds away. I do remember your Circus quilt, it's lovely to see it again.

Here's hoping you exceed your 1000 visitors by a long shot, Lizzie. All the best for a successful weekend.
We have NSW election on Saturday and my friend's Antique Quilt Big Day Out on Sunday...should be fun!

My guild show here in the USA is also having their annual quilt show this weekend. I'm going down there today to help with preparations (I'm having fun helping!). Good luck with your show, I hope you have a tremendous turn-out with lots of people attending, and hope we have the same.

I'm gonna tell Mom! said...

Have fun! Good luck!!

Your circus quilt is adorable! Hoping your quilt show weekend went well...ours is coming up this September - always a ton of work and then collapsing the week after!
Thanks for dropping by earlier - I sure have enjoyed your summer/flower images during our very long winter...
