Lets Get Stitched Is Over For Another Year

In the weekend I made a trip across the ditch and went to Brisbane for the annual "Lets Get Stitched". This year Joy from JoyPatch organised it and what a great event it was and here are all the lovely ladies who went.

I still have not taken photos of all the stuff I bought home with me so will leave that for another post but here are some pictures of the great time we had.

This was my lovely name badge for the Friday bus tour.  The lovely Michelle Ridgway of RagTag Stitchin' made this for me.  Isn't it adorable

Then after so many years knowing each other on the internet I finally got to me the lovely Vicki from the Pickledish Patch who was also one of the lovely hosts.

 Pizza Night was on Friday ....yum yum

On Saturday I meet up with my sister as we had a free day so went down to South Bank and saw a few places like the Art Gallery and Museum.  We also went walking up and down and I had to take some pictures of Central Brisbane across the river. 

The debate still rages ..... it the Pavlova Aussie or NZ.  For me it is a NZ icon.

 Lunch was yummy along Grey Street

And here is the nephew when we got back to the hotel I was staying at.

On the Saturday night we went and had tea at the Naked Whiskey Bar.  Boy was it entertaining when we walked in.

The steak I had was huge but nice,  I didn't finish it all but nearly did.  800 grams of it.

Cake time to celebrate five years of Lets Get Stitched

A lovely weekend had and next year I will be back in Hobart for it. Accommodation already booked....yay. 

Watch for my next post on all the other fun we had along with the goodies I cam home with.
