OH DZINTRA......you WERE ON HOLIDAY! Anytime there is FOOD, friends and art there is relaxation. That salmon looks fantastic and the desserts....oh my! Sweet JoJo picked a good one! WOW....what a fantastic summer I am having. I have to remember that each day is a day to improve what I am doing in my art and then I need to devote time to my reading and writing. Oh there is so much fun to be had!!!!

LOVE! Anita

I've really enjoyed your past few posts about the quilt show. It's fun seeing all the Australian bloggers I've gotten to know through the Chooky's sscs swap. You had so many terrific purchases, have fun with them!! The food looks wonderful, a fun time all around!

Your photos of food always leave one longing to savour the flavours.
I hope Winter is arriving gently and you have settled in to enjoy it.
A special hello to JoJo.

Checked your blog out today, Dzintra, and my gosh-- you certainly had a great time at the Show. You do deserve a break like this. I have not touched the fabrics I bought from Anni as yet-- but hope to soon. Enjoy your new stash.
