A Fun Day Out With Some Blogging Friends

(If you're visiting from the GYB party you can see my post here. Thanks for stopping by.)

On Saturday I took my Mum with me to a WA Bloggers meet-up organised by Anthea at Hibiscus Stitches.

We had a great time shopping and lunching together, making new friends and catching up with old ones. Mum has been wanting to start a blog for a while and this get-together has only increased her enthusiasm.

Clockwise from L-R - Mum (Helen), Dianne, Tracee, Julia, Anthea, Maria, Sandra and Jeneta

We met at Southlands Fabric and Sewing Centre - a treasure trove of fabric, patterns, buttons, quilts on display and sewing machines. We were very well treated by the lovely ladies working there and most (if not all) of us bought a little something.

My purchases - including 2 more projects to add to my quilts to do (QTD) list

I had to buy some buttons for Miss M - she has a real fetish for them!

Then we popped into Textile Traders before heading to Mom Dumpling House in Willeton for a yummy lunch.

All in all, a great day out. Thanks Anthea for organising everything. Looking forward to catching up with everyone at the May Craft & Quilt Fair!

Have a great week.
Cheers,
Tracy

How fun! I've always wanted to meet up with local bloggers but really don't know how to even find them. I'm glad you found a way. BTW, I'm visiting from the GYBP.
