Australasian Quilt Convention – Done. And a little old T.G.I.F.F.

 A couple of months ago, I googled “quilt shows”.  Mr Google led me to a fabulous website HERE which gave me all the dates for craft and quilt shows in Australia this year.  I then added all the Melbourne dates to my calendar, in the hope that I would be able to get to them all! The first cab off the rank was the Australasian Quilt Convention.  Of course, nothing goes completely to plan for me, so when Chloe decided that Tuesday night would be the … Continue Reading »
