Sydney Craft Show - by proxy

I didnt go to the Sydney Craft Show and I'm really sorry I didnt - it would have been so much fun to join in the blog meet.
So, I gave my bestest sewing mate some $$$ and asked her to spend it - what friends do for you sometimes!
The only thing I specifically requested was Natalie Bird's new book - Red Home but mentioned that maybe something from Marg Low would be nice too since she does not come to the Brisbane Craft Show.
That sill left money over for some surprises.

Here is what she got for me:

As well as the Natalie Bird book (personally autographed!!) and 2 patterns from Marg Low she also got me a gorgeous fat quarter bundle and 2 extra pieces of fabric (mmm maybe to make the quilt in Red Home - but certainly pushing me outside my comfort zone - since I am usually a brights/ jewel tones girl), a piece of tape with ruler measurements on it, the gorgeous shopper bag and diary from Quiltmania, plus a few of their cards.  And a NSW Quilters Guild badge - to add to my collection on my Quilt Diva quilt.
A truly wonderful bunch of goodies and  a big thank you to my best friend.

And she is going to make up a DVD of all the pictures that she took of the quilts .  Along with all the blog posts I have read - it's almost as good as being there.
