Meeting old friends and new

Today I went to the Botanical Gardens in Canberra to meet up again with Sharon B and Annie W for coffee and also to meet for the first time fellow Aussie blogger Judy B.
What a great afternoon of non stop chatter-show and tell and lovely coffee.
Both Sharon and Annie brought along there band samplers and all that I can say is Wow.
You have to see both of these with your own eyes to appreciate the amount of work that has gone into them.
If you want to take a peak at both of them look at Sharon's here and Annies here but with Annies you will need to work your way back through previous posts to get the full story.
Sharon also had her Diamond blocks with her and they were well worth taking a look at also.
Judy is a well known patchworker from Bordertown in South Australia and she had come along with some of her smaller works of art to show us.
It was such a pleasure to spend quality time with fellow bloggers again.

From left to right are Judy-Doreen-Annie and Sharon with Judy's show and tell on the table.
I had to leave after 2 hours as I had to go back to the doctors to have my toe checked again.

Blogger playing up - if this comes through twice then just delete:)

I would love to have been a fly on the wall, I bet you had a great time.
BTW it looks like you and Judy could be sisters, you are very much alike in the photo :)
