First stop Wodonga!!
What a great weekend I’ve had!
The Wodonga quilters I met are awesome – and you all know who you are! And I know that I’ve made some good friends here – and I’ll be baaaaaack……….
The trunk show at Carolyn’s Quilting Room on Friday was a great deal of fun. There were about 15 women, all enthusiastic – which makes it so much easier for me. It was good to meet them and hear their comments about my quilts – it helps me realise that what I’m doing is so appreciated! After the talk came the “fondling of the quilts” – which always puts a smile on my face – quilts are meant to be fondled and touched and caressed ….
Saturday saw me bright and early in the shop raring to go. I always enjoy teaching Floral Beauty, my first design ever. When I first taught it one of the requirements I listed was a phone headset. This of course received a lot of attention. This was the quilt that showed me that I could do two things at once – as if I didn’t know that before after all I am a woman! So I installed a headset and whenever any of my girlfriends called I’d say “hang on” and I’d grab my headset and my sewing. I did most of this quilt on the phone!
I also enjoy seeing the wide variety of fabrics that quilters use for this quilt.
And guess who gatecrashed our class?
Sue-Anne had started Floral Beauty and brought it in for us all to drool over. I’m sorry I didn’t take any photos thinking that I had already photographed them – and I had but they were on my other computer at home.
Shelly and Jan looked after me very well – I couldn’t have asked for better hosts! Jan where were you? I missed getting a photo of you – maybe next time! And of course I did make a dent in my “wages” for the day – how could I resist when there are such beautiful fabrics just begging to be taken home.
I was so fortunate to meet this wonderful group – AND to be asked to come back to teach. So Wodonga…. I’ll be back!
And lastly, don’t you just love this sign?
