The Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair, June 11-15, 2008

Got up a bit late today but managed to head off for The Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour,Sydney at 10.00am. Weather was yuk, very windy, big grey clouds and cold. At least the halls were warm and there was plenty of coffee places. Not sure what time we arrived but we left at about 3.00pm. My feet ached like mad but it was an enjoyable day.
Not only did I get a good little stash but a new toy to play with - drill and coiler mandrel set...yaaayyyy.
Now what did I get? Many coloured glass beads, czech glass, silver metal fancy spacers. many sizes of silver wire, gorgeous pendants, head pins, eye pins and ribbon and string necklaces. I think thats it. Oh some semi precious stones. Best of all is my new toy drill and coiler mandrel set.
Oh, and this is where we ended up before we headed off home. The Belgian Bar on Sydney Rocks. Last time we went to Sydney we knew about this place but couldn't find it, must have spent a night walking The Rocks looking for it. Barry had curried mussels and me, pork, mash and sauerkraut (I think that is how you spell it but I didn't like it). To be boring I had a diet coke and barry a glass of Leffe.

No drinking for me I have to be up bright and early tomorrow morning at 8.00am for a day of fire brigade training. Ouch!
