Tis the Season at AQC


Look what I came across yesterday at the Australasian Quilt Convention.



I asked the lady behind the table if I could take a photo of it and she pointed to the woman standing right beside me and said "You'll have to ask Natalie".
 
Low and behold, I was standing right next to Natalie Bird. I mentioned our stitch-a-long and ofcourse she said yes. Cool huh?
