After an all too brief sojourn at home base, catching up on some stitching, packing, washing and tending to the business of the MATH is his absence, it was back on the road to Adelaide and the Craft show with Andrew from

It was terrific to meet all the Scrapmatts customers and to introduce this product to a whole group of new people…

Andrew and Sofie had been working hard to produce some new items for Christmas which proved very popular as we sold out of the new Christmas trees in only a couple of days.  These are now back in stock for those of you who missed out and can be ordered through the Scrapmatts website!

I particularly enjoyed being able to meet Judy Butcher – a blogland friend.  Judy and I both belong to a number of different online quilting and textile related groups, so this was the perfect opportunity to finally meet.

Judy was spending her time demonstrating hand quilting techniques on the SA Quilters’ Guild stand in the exhibition area.  We got a few moments here and there to chat and for me to admire the applique quilt Judy was working on… hopefully Judy will post pictures soon!

Judy has a couple of blogs you can check out and if you are interested in what sort of results you can get from computerised quilting programmes, then you must stop by Judy’s Virtual Quilter blog.

After the show, I was faced with a very hot drive back home….I didn’t envy the Adelaide folks their  record burst of hot weather for November.  At least this time I wasn’t dodging feral goats on the road!
