One of the things I have most enjoyed about writing a blog, has been to meet up with other bloggers!! Today my non blog friend Deb and I travelled about an hour up to Amitie in Gardenvale to visit Jenny and her wonderful shop. We also met up with Merran (flickr), Melissa (Meli B is Making Things) and Miriam (Yellow Rose Quilts). Two hours flew as we caught up, chatted and laughed over the beautiful fabrics that Jenny's shop is so well known for. We didn't leave empty handed either but I will show that stash another time! I forgot to bring out my camera until after Merran left, but here we all are...
L to R...Melissa, Jenny (in back), Miriam, Deb, Me (2 photo's taken, both have me with eyes shut, I'm good at ruining a photo!!).
Afterwards, Miriam, Melissa, Deb and I popped into Patchwork on Central and picked up a couple more bits and pieces, then headed into Our Kitchen Table for lunch. This gorgeous cafe had a lovely homely feel about it with beautiful touches around the place like these stunning cabbage flowers...
...a lovely bowl of quinces (I think Miriam took a photo of them) and this amazing light shade, made out of fine bone china cups!
We were really taken with it (pics taken with Kev's permission, thanks Kev).
The whole place had such a welcoming feel, lovely food (I had the most delicious passionfruit cupcake) and great coffee, I will definitely be going back there next time I am up that way.
Thanks girls for a fabulous day!
Another wonderful blogger who I haven't met in person yet, but will one day I'm sure...is Jackie from Canton Village Quilts Works. Did you know it was her birthday today? And to celebrate she is having a 23% sale in her shop, just for today. Pop over here to wish her a happy birthday, and here to check out her sale.
