This is ... my favourite accessory and post 100


ARGHHHHH!!!!!!! This is me and my favourite 2 accessories. My red head band to keep my "wild hair" out of my eyes and my lovely crafty broach. Thanks to One Red Robin for stretching our comfort barriers this week.
I much prefer this cute little happy face. I must try another one and get his face right. I still love him though.On Sunday just gone I had a lovely trip to the big bad smoke (Melbourne that is!) to visit the Quilters Convention. I went on the train with my friend Janine and had the most wonderful day.
We saw some amazing quilts ...



...and I just love seeing the things I don't see in Ballarat, like the big tall buildings, traffic and trams, people everywhere. It makes me appreciate getting home to the place where I live.

Have a great week everyone!
Annie
p.s. I just remembered that this is my 100th post. I will of course in true blogland style be awarding a 'give away' so leave me a comment and I'll dream up a parcel for the post.

Hello, lovely brooch, lovely quilts too! I know what you mean it's great to be in Melbourne for the day but always nice to get back home, isn't it?!

Love the red headband. I didn't know there was a Quilter convention on in Melbourne on the weekend. I can't keep up with all the crafty events.

Aren't Quilt Shows The Best! They inspire and get the creative juices flowing... it's kind of like going to the library... because there is so much information available, I go into information overload... but it's the good kind if you know what I mean! LoL
Congrats on your 100th post! You do such a nice job... I enjoy coming to visit! Jean-o

lucky you to get to the quilter's convention.
we had the same feeling about melbourne - it was fantastic but i was so happy to return to sleepy old adelaide. much quieter - and i don't have to worry so much about the kids getting run over! agh the traffic.
