This has been a week of variety. I've done orchard work, gardening, been to a funeral and also to the Quilt and Craft Fair in Hamilton.
The photos are a few I took at the Exhibition of quilts and the purchases I made. Huge windows above the quilts made it difficult to get good photos, so I only took about a dozen.The standard of work was amazingly high.( please note quilts shown here are by unknown people)Next post I will tell you about the quilts on display that were by ladies I do know.
I purchased a 5" wide Jelly Roll of Laurel Burch Christmas fabrics, cause I love her designs and have some gift ideas in mind. I started collecting some bright plainish fabrics and those with gold on for a quilt I am to start making for DH ( his idea ), and of course a few fat quarters I loved (just because I loved them.) I also got a couple of packets of the dye cut shapes which are ready to iron on - I've not used them before - so will see if I like them. I went with 4 other ladies - one of the younger ones drove us all , and I bought the least - some of them have an amazing insatiable appetite for spending and obviously the where with all to do it! We had a lovely day out but I was exhausted after the 11 hours it took.Having fun can be tiring.Back to the garden now while the sun is shining.
* Molly, we don't want to move - it's cause it may get too much for us to cope with.We are in no hurry to go, so are prepared to wait and see what turns up.( people are not rushing to buy the property you'll notice )
