What an exhilarating morning we had yesterday. At the instigation of Esther (, around 14 Brisbane Etsy sellers gathered at The Avid Reader bookshop at West End ( The idea was to get to know each other and discuss the benefits of starting a street team as a means of promoting our businesses and to support each other.

To meet personally is so much more satisfying than communicating via the internet and now we know which face belongs to which Etsy shop. Naturally, there was Show & Tell, and what incredible goodies were displayed! Everything from magnificent works of art down to the most adorable little felt baby booties. The talent of the women sitting around the table was truly awe-inspiring. It augers well for our future as a group. So we have called ourselves BrisStyle and we are off to a promising start.

I have at last finished my Lorikeet small quilt (well, apart from the binding, but who's counting?), so I have at least completed one quilt this year.

Most of the workshop participants brought along their completed (or almost completed) quilts to our Schoolhouse Quilters' meeting last Thursday evening, and I must say they looked stunning. Can't wait for our quilt exhibition later in the year.
