Monday Makers!#44

Hi everyone!
How was your week/end? I had a pretty busy week and a weekend.
I want to tell you a little bit about my weekend, but first, I want to thank you for all your nice comments for last week's 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop post. I will catch up on responding to your comments and visiting your blogs this week. I also want to take the opportunity to welcome my new followers! Your support means a lot to me. I hope to see you visiting my blog again and again!
Ok, now to the weekend.
Last Saturday, I attended a festival at the Blue Mountains, Sydney with my jewellery stall. It was a pretty full on day with a very early set up in minus temperatures and a late finish due to the number of stalls that attended. My lovely sister-in-law Rhia came to help me for the day. Luckily we were all rugged up and from time to time, we had a chance to warm up under the gentle winter sun.
The biggest excitement for me was the Sunday. Me and Rhia went to the Sydney Quilt and Craft Fair. It was so lively, full of all kinds of fabric and craft booths, oh and sewing and quilting machines! Because it was the last day of the fair, it wasn't so crowded; therefore, we were able to spend as much time as we wanted at the booths. Also, I had a chance to meet the lovely Molly Sparkles and try my dream sewing machine Juki TL 98p. Ok, I have to admit that the model I want to buy is TL 2010Q which is not sold in Australia. But, seriously, the only difference between the two is that the 2010 model has speed control. After trying the 98P in person and talking to Molly, I am totally sold!
I also tried several sit down and long arm quilting machines. I will write more about my experience in my next post. If you want to have a sneak peak, I shared on Instagram a few pictures and a short video of me quilting on a long arm. My IG name is hugabitquilts.
A quick photo with the sparkling Molly :-)
I also bought a couple of things like thread and some fat quarters from Allison Glass, which I could not resist! I will show them in another post as well.
Now to Monday Makers!
