Still excited by our stop over at Treehouse Textiles, Glenda and I made our way to our rendezvous with Janine and were delighted to find Cathy would be joining us for lunch!
Janine had cooked a delicious lasagne…
…which we ate under the covered verandah. Looking west the clouds were rolling in….
…and looking east, there was hardly a cloud in the sky! Such a strange Spring day.
The outlook from the verandah to the garden was just delightful.
Quite taken with this chairs!
Then we had some show and tell; Glenda with her Circle Game blocks which she is doing through Amitie Textiles
and Kim McLean’s Flower Garden applique she is doing through Material Obsession Glenda has 11 blocks completed, here are just a few….
Janine brought out her Periwinkle Star (the first template set I did for Victorian Textiles!)
and this gorgeous quilt….
which has a stunning backing.
Janine’s Mum and sister made this quilt for Janine, which she is now hand quilting.
Love the fussy cutting!
Glenda has just finished her Museum Medallion (again through Amitie)
and Cathy had her nearly done one for show and tell too!
…along with her circle blocks ready for the next border.
We had treats, and books to browse…
…..a birthday bottle to share
…..walks with sea views
a visit to a fantastic retro cafe….
with stunning views…..(can you see the yacht?)
and scrumptious morning teas…..
…as well as the best hot chocolate…..
….a challenge of merging two applique donuts….
….into grouped colours
….an impromptu hand quilting lesson
and even patchwork shoes!
A truly fun weekend!!
