....Congratulations to the members of the Art and Craft Group of Winton, who have a wonderful display of quilts, sewing, art, photography and silver at the Waltzing Matilda Centre. I was lucky enough to be invited to attend the opening night on Saturday. The venue is superb and the exhibition, which will be open for about 6 weeks, is a credit to a small band of hard working people. I was so busy chatting and catching up with friends....not one photo was taken!!! Maybe someone can send me a few?
The only downside of a trip out that way, is the desperate situation with the drought. It's just heartbreaking to see it, let alone live it!
Star Quilt Competition ... nominations are due now, but I'm sure they would still be accepted within the next few days if you're running a bit late.
Some time back, a lady came to me with some fabric that had been given to her by her sister, after a trip to the States. My lady is a huge Elvis fan, so we had to incorporate the panels and because she had never done any patchwork before, she wanted to learn as many techniques as possible
I think she did a fabulous job.
A close up of some of the quilting by Rosalie of Rose Quilting There were guitars and music symbols everywhere. Superb!
Have to have a little brag about Bronte's swimming last weekend. Last carnival for the season and had a fabulous meet in Rockhampton. Central Queensland Champion 9 yr old for Butterfly and Backstroke!!
10 swims and 9 PB's for the weekend, Lachlan also a PB.
Ready now for netball and football - oh to have the energy!
For those that don't get to see the Facebook posts, a few new ranges have begun to arrive.
On the left is "Feed" and on the right is "Block Party". Totally different and equally gorgeous!
By the way, patterns and templates have arrived for the Rainbow Row by Row. If anyone would like to take up the offer of 4.5m of Kona background plus patt. and temp. for $85 the lot, let me know. Sending a few packages of to Eulo early in the week for a couple of ladies that wish to join in.
Not much done in the garden this week, however it did have a good watering! Very lucky to have 37ml on Sat. night and a further 14ml Sunday night.
