Here is a close up of the quilting on Margaret Reid's "Giant Dahlia."
Carol Mahoney's "Dotty Circles," had many variations of circles within circles.
These next 2 are for those who like something quite modern.
I really liked Justine Jones's take on a bento box block, especially as I am making a quilt using my take on the same block. The sloping edges really jazz it up.
This wall hanging, "Reflection," by Shirley Sparks, had woven fabric and was a beautiful blue, with a lovely message.
I think I may leave my picks from Calico Christmas at that as there are other sites with photos.
Meanwhile back on the orchard it has been very, very busy. The kiwifruit are getting their pre-blossom spray on right now as any bees around should be home in bed. We have just been to a grower meeting,( and BBQ Dinner - it was yummy ) which was extra long as there was an extra segment to cover a topic new to us in NZ. There is a current scare going on with kiwifruit orchards having found PSA.( more on that in the days to come. )
This morning we had our NZ Gap audit to be allowed to export avocados this season. ( in about 2 weeks time) We passed. This is the first year we have had to do this for avocados. ( more paperwork and regulations! ) Never a dull moment around here - I quite like dull sometimes.
