Brisbane Blog Meet at The Wishing Well Cafe

Maree organised a Blog Meet for today - it was very hot in Brisbane today - 30 celsius but we met in a little cafe at Victoria Point - near the water and it was absolutely the best place to be for the day.  We started at 10.30 for a coffee, stitched and did Show & Tell - then had lunch and dessert and more coffee and more stitching...a lot of talking and laughing.
I think this will become the regular blog meeting spot.  If you get the chance to go there for lunch - or they do a high tea with 24 hours notice - do it - its a bit "shabby chic" with a lot of very pretty teapots, tea cups and our teaspoons were the souvenir kind. All very elegant... and we felt very comfortable taking over the back corner, stitching away.  (Two quilts in the toilet and the original well is still there!)
I have used Maree's photo to show the group and there might be some show & tell photos later...
