As you will have read from my previous post, the Sydney Quilt show has been on in Darling Harbour.
Maree had put out a tentative meeting for some bloggers to gather and perhaps have a coffee or a meal. Unfortunately Maree's plans fell through and she couldn't join us (there's always next year Maree)but Janet and I decided that we would still meet.
I felt really privileged to meet the very talented Janet and her DH. We began the evening with a pre dinner drink and then headed to have a meal at Jordan's in Darling Harbour. Jordan's is well positioned and was a short stroll from our original meeting place. I am only sorry now that I didn't take some photos of the city lights. Sydney is so radiant at night with all the lights.
I did manage to take some pics of our meal though as I thought the presentation was amazing.
Three of us had fish of some kind and one had a steak. We all agreed that it tasted as good as it looked, and we washed it down with a great bottle of wine.
During our meal Janet presented me with a present, I was truly surprised and ever so thrilled.
Janet had made me a zippered pouch , in my favourite colours, can you guess, raspberry red of course. On the zip thingy that you use to pull the zip open and close Janet attached a tassel with the prettiest bead on it.
I know Janet put a lot of thought into it and I feel really lucky. Thank you so much Janet.
I have to say the blogging community is very special.
Heel veel quilts..bij Karen!
