On Sunday I drove up the road for 20 minutes to Katikati where Carol at Katipatch was holding her Annual Garden Party ( and quilt hanging ). The rain threatened but kept away. Lots of ( mainly ) ladies enjoyed the quilts and stalls and happy atmosphere. Here are a few I liked. ( as they were pegged on clothes lines they were not hanging straight so some pics are on an angle )
Below -Melanie's quilt.( she loves batiks! So do I ! )
I love the clean crisp appearance of this 2 colour quilt.
There were quilt hanging in the garage too.
That's my friend Nan's quilt on the right hand end.
They have a lovely setting for such an event.Around the back Eddie has a fabulous espaliered pear against the house wall.( I want one of those! )
It had strawberries growing at it's feet and just nearby a new circular garden had young red and black currant bushes planted.. There were also some apple trees growing on a single trunk in pots - no branches to speak of but quite a few fruit. They also have an avocado orchard.
Of course I met many ladies I knew, some patchworkers but other too. Some I only seem to meet when I go to this event. There was a guitarist seranading us and a barber shop quartet, and refreshments too if you so desired. I am glad I went.
