Today is November 10th 2013...
Time is flying by .
It has been a while since my last post so here goes......
Being honest her I have had no time to sew , just teaching.
I had a terrific weekend with the Latrobe Quilters in early October . It was so lovely to met up again with some past students from AQC who are doing some amazing quilting .
Margaret McDonald as the other tutor. It was our first meeting and thankyou Margaret for your company, travel assistance it was a please to work with you.
Next trip away was for the Norfolk Island Quilters.
Wow what a beautiful Island.
This trip John accompanied me., very different having your husband around while you work, but it was fine.
John explored the island and had a great rest.
There were 4 tutors with over 65 students attending.
The committee did a sensational job and my thanks go to each and every one of them. we had a great time.
My classes went really well. We had some lovely evenings out to dinner and enjoyed great company.
This is my favourite photo of an old fishing boat with the one pine in the background.
My classes were held at a beautiful location a private paradise of stunning gardens and this huge room with Highly polished Norfolk pine tables metres long!!!!!!!!
Some of the flowers the ladies did. all happy and gorgeous flowers they were too.
There was a quilt show and pin cushion exhibition being held at the RSL club.. How unique is that...fantastic hand made pin cushions.
.Thank you to all of my lovely ladies who attended the classes I enjoyed your company immensely ...
and Happy quilting........
Last week was back to Parkes for Vanessa's Wool and Craft shop
The girls took a 2 day tumbler quilt class on either Thursday/ Friday or Sat/Sunday.
The ladies completed the quilt tops, ditched all the seams before class time and started free motion quilting their quilts with me in class . Loved the spirit of just getting on and quilting ... Go Girls
