Blogmeet...

Justine & Nikki from MixTape organised a blogmeet today & Jenny, the owner of Amitie was kind enough to let us take over her shop for a few hours. We had lots of fun chatting, exchanging gifts, eating the yummy food that everyone brought & doing a spot of stitching. Kirsty, Cam, Sharon & Corrie (who have met through brown Owls) were there, but I also got to meet Fi, Kitty & Carly. As an extra bonus the lovely Louise was working, so I finally got to put a face to the name.I was lucky enough to get a gift bag from Corrie full of lots of beautiful Japanese fabric (which she sells in her retro mummy shop) as well as a cool vintage Bevknits pattern & some other Japanese goodies. I can't wait to have a play with all the fabric. The tote itself is so cute & I plan on taking it on maiden journey tomorrow. On top of that, (because she is on the move again) she also gave me a pile of vintage patterns, very Brady Bunch god love 'em! Thanks Corrie.
Many thanks to Justine & Nikki for all their hard work in organising such a fantastic afternoon.

oh what fun!... I was so tempted to put my hat in the ring for this meet, but as I went to the one last year I thought that would just be greedy :)

Great gift that you got too.

so glad you liked it but I started having performance anxiety as some people's interpretation of a small gift was H-U-G-E!!!! I could have gone crazy too!!!! I do love that bambi fabric and have to whip myself a quick bag too! and don't you love amitie....I love it!

How wonderful to have a meet up - I'm hoping to do that at the next Stitches and Craft in Melb.

So good to finally meet you face to face and you are just as lovely as I expected! Sounds like you had great fun - wish I could have hung around but I was a little exhausted! Yummy fabric - we're big fans of the Brady Bunch fashions in my house!
