Mount Gravatt Show

It's show time again :D

Many years I've spent getting excited about the Mount Gravatt Show and anticipating when it would be coming. Last year both Lana and I had cross stitch in the show and we managed to win a couple of prizes. This year I'm no where near that organised and really haven't been working on any cross stitch at the right size.

We go back and forth to the show every year and the last couple of years the kids have been introduced to the fun of the show. Unfortunately the kids don't get into the excitement of looking through all the displays and they can't think of anything else but the rides. It's slightly annoying because the displays are my favourite part.

So I want to share some of the beautiful stuff I found at the cross stitch and quilting displays.

I'm sorry about the quality of the photos but the Aztec design was gorgeous.

This quilt below has been cross stitched and then quilted into a quilt. It is beautiful.


It was 100 years for the show this year and they had a big display for 100 years in needlework. It looks absolutely amazing.






The needlework is amazing and the quilts look awesome. I loved this one below the pattern is amazing.


Each year they have a treasure hunt competition. The kids loved doing it. They had to go around all the displays and find the odd item out. In the quilts there was a great big number 1 balloon. They thoroughly enjoyed searching for all the stuff and I hope one of them wins the prize.


There was some awesome old machines, this one was running beautifully.


There was a hot wheels display. With this awesome little kid as well. He managed some awesome tricks and then his dad took over.




By the end of this trick you couldn't see a thing.



All in all it was an awesome day/night and the kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I loved all the crafts.
Happy Stitching,
Caitlin

  5. Man there are some truly talented quilters. I love the Sydney quilt show and try and get to it every year. I'm fascinated by them. I adore the Wolf quilt, that one was my favourite.
