Quilt-In

It was a glorious day on Sunday, and what better way to spend it than with 150 ladies with similar "stitching" interests! The annual Quilt-In is presented each year by Marilyn and her trusty helpers from The Patchwork Tea House in Warburton (or "Warby" as we locals call it!). Beautiful surroundings, with a lovely outlook over putting greens of the golf course. I caught up with my friend Lynn, who teaches at the school I worked at "Before Retirement". It's Lynn's turn now - she is leaving at the end of this year, to enjoy a life of patchwork and stitching! It also means more coffee mornings together!The lovely Lynette Anderson was guest designer - I was very lucky to be able to have a chat to her, she is indeed a beautiful person. She bought lots of made up samples of her patterns - much too tempting!! Here is Lynette being introduced by Marilyn.
Lynette's new B.O.M. - pussy cats - just gorgeous!Lynette's hubby Vince had to come in handy for something!
Denise and Joy enjoying the day.
A very big thank you to Marilyn and her team of organisers, and also to Lynette for making the day such a memorable one!
Bye for now,
Liz

Footnote: Much hilarity in the Stanway home that evening. Me, David, our son Mark and daughter-in-law Rachael playing "Stitchopoly" (I won it in a raffle at the Quilt-In).
There's something quite funny about a grown man being dealt a card that reads, "You won Stitcher of the Year Award. Collect $75". Or, "Your neighbour's cat found its way into your needlework basket. Pay $25 to replace the tangled thread."

Hey Liz! Looks like you had a lovely weekend of stitching and chatting! It's always encouraging to get a group of stitchers together, no matter how big or small the group, as everyone is so clever, encouraging and supportive - what a lovely legacy to leave for future generations - oh, not to mention all the pretties they make! Tee! Hee! Hee! Bear Hugs! KRIS
