I met Margaret the lady who made my NZ/Australia Art swap. It was lovely to met and talk with her.
The quilts challenges there were just amazing and I could go back today and take another look. I took quite a few pictures. Such talent we have.
I had a chat with Brenda Smith (Twelve by Twelve) Lisa Walton ,Judy Hall and missed Cecile Watman. She would have been busy at this how with the teaching. Of course my friend Martin Wrigh at Aussie Patches.
Dale from The Thread Studio showed some very interesting ideas and projects.
It was so busy every where you looked something else to see. I am sure I did not see everything and if I had the time I would have gone back today.
I did not do any workshops but would have loved to. You either go to do workshops or to look just not enough time to do it all in a day. I think I could have gone every day and will think about that for next year.
Knitting and crochet seem to have taken over the craft world with so much wool and threads on sale. I have to add that the prices were very expensive. Of course I had to buy a few special ones for my work.

This is the give away.
The same piece just upside down.
To be in the draw add yourself as a follower (if you are not already) and make a comment.
I had always wanted to try this out but never got around to it. I can see so many possibilities with stamping, stenciling, brushing, sponging and using a needle or fine paint brush. It was a mess around day today but soon I will try something a bit different and more precise.

We had a fantastic quilt show this year. I think this one topped them all.
Record numbers passed through the door. I am not sure if they came for the show or the food. We have a very good reputation for the food. Good old fashion home cooking.People came by the bus load.
Margot's winning quilt.
Vera's 2nd place.
The clubs Quilt challenge where we were given 2 pieces of gold fabric and were asked to design a quilt with them. We have been doing this for 4 years and each year the work gets better and better. This year the work was outstanding. Margot won the challenge with Vera 2nd.
