For Brisbane and Brisbane Area Bloggers and Friends

A few of us managed to bump into each other at the Mad Quilters Gathering last week and thought we would try for a quick Blog Meet Up - on Sunday 3rd June. Yes I know it's soon but by the time we removed school holidays, the Sydney Quilt Show and a few other things - that was the best we could do.
So the usual place (Cleveland Grandview Hotel) and lets say meet around 11 for coffee etc and then stay for lunch. Perhaps those who are making Some Kind of Wonderful (either via the SAL blog or by themselves) would like to bring along whatever they have done so far. Its NOT a competition - its just for fun. Or any other Show & tell is always appreciated.
Please pass this on to anyone else in the area - the more the merrier - but please give me an idea if you think you will make it so I can organise the Hotel.
You can get to my blog here or post a comment here.

Hear from you soon.
