The last show of the year was in Melbourne, Australia last weekend. Just a short flight for us from Brisbane for which I was glad as the thought of another long flight at the moment does not appeal to me! I only had a small space for my display but it looked pretty and I love catching up with all the store owners and showing them my new creations.
Vince tested the chicken tea cosy which is from my new book 'Stitch It For Autumn' out as a hat....combined with the fabulous fluro saftely jacket that we all had to wear to set the booth up the fashion look is interesting!
I demonstrated the Apliquick tools all weekend to interested store owners and many of them went home with some to play with, you will find the Apliquick tools in a store near you very very soon. For a tutorial on how they are used please visit here.
Friday night we went to an amazing resturant called 'Cookie' which is in Melbournes Swanston street. We were treated like royalty as the resturant manager is the daughter of one of the lovely ladies who worked for me for several years.
We chose a mussel cake, dumplings which were too pretty to eat, although we did eat them eventually and they were divine.
We ended up walking back to the hotel as finding a cab was impossible at that time of night, the fairy light filled trees were magical.
