Other Exhibitions.

As well as the large exhibition in the Great Lakes Centre in Taupo there were 3 more smaller exhibitions at the Museum.
 The 12 by 12 RED Challenge.

The red gerbra won.

The bird was entirely stitched.


I liked Lois Wine's perspective ( but it wasn't square )
 One side of the display was poorly lit so detracted from those entries.
.
 Also in another room was Gwen Marston's trunk exhibition


*****
Fibres Unlimited had an exhibit called My Place.
 I loved Orakei Koraka by Aletta Lamprecht and Robin Tinker.
 The colours used depicted the thermal activity of this area.
 The strata was wonderfully stitched.
 Also at the Museum to my surprise was The Garden of Well Being, (Ora )  I had seen many years ago at Elerslie Flower show. It won at Chelsea and was then recreated back in NZ. It now lives and grows beside the Taupo Museum walls.


****
 I am still coughing - seems hard to get rid of. Every day I have been getting as much sun as I can. It is worst first thing in the morning. That has been a good excuse to do quite stitching outside for and hour or so each day.
 I have still more to report on my week away. Another class and the new purchases I made. ( Next Post )

Wow.......you were really able to immerse yourself in some amazing quilts! That garden is very pretty, and looks very tranquil.

The quilts are beautiful but that garden is awesome! I read the story - how wonderful that it won the Chelsea gold. All of NZ must have been thrilled to bits at that news.

Happy week - hope you feel better soon.
