Hyperventilating

It’s really not good for you when there’s too many gorgeous things to be seen, causing too much hyperventilating!! Would you like to see too?? You have been warned!!

Mrs Mac ventured up to Brisbane for the Quilt Exhibition (loved it by the way!), and while there stayed with friends. Her friend, Mrs C, took Mrs Mac to a bric-a-brac store where….get ready!!….Mrs Mac purchased this…..

    Wow! You need to pass the paper bag! The quilting projects are all just so stunning — every one of them! I love those Joel Dewberry prints too — the second one from the left reminds me of clothing I had when I was a teenager. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I loved it all, but that sewing basket/table is the best! You ladies have set a high standard to stitching with friends days. Looks like a fancy tea shop!
