Last week of preparations

During the last few weeks, we have been busy! Jobs include: publicity shots and articles, sorting entries, designing the layout, ordering frames and poles, preparing rosters, collating entry information for the labels, and here you can see labels being cut into 2 to make both label and receipt, before being punched and pinned ready for Thursday morning as quilts are delivered.
This week shifts up another gear as we start to sort and load supplies and equipment. And then there are the cafe preparations ...

The Next Stop!

Our 10th Anniversary Quilt enjoyed a lovely visit to Blackheath this weekend. The group at Anne Sommerlad's Retreat kept it company, while attending classes and relishing the friendship of the participators.
It then nestled in a shady spot in Susie's garden under the camellia tree.

Susie, Robyne and Moyra enjoying the afternoon.


 
Those edges are amazing!

Where to next? 
Let's see if it travels down the mountain and arrives at 'Down Patchwork Lane' in Penrith. Lots to see in the big city! It's final destination will be the Springwood Community Quilt Show on the last weekend in April. Will keep you posted.

TRAVELS OF A RAFFLE QUILT

 Our lovely raffle quilt recently visited a farm in Leura. It had previously had a short stay at The Stitching Post in Lurline Street, Katoomba. No longer lying quietly on a bed it spent last Friday checking out the countryside and enjoying the fresh mountain air.

 It wandered up a stony path and found a great spot to hang around, just enjoying the birds in flight and the lazy lizards playing in the sun.

   If only the kites bordering the quilt could fly, over the valleys they would go. Thanks Robyne for a fabulous edge highlighted against the slabs of the timber hut.

Where to next? A possible visit over the ranges to Bathurst. We'll keep you posted!
