I’m in Moama!
Left The Golfer at home, and headed up the highway on Friday for a weekend workshop on my templates, at Heather’s Quilting Emporium. I’m staying with friend Lynette, who recently moved here, in her beautiful new home.
I’d phoned Heather a week or so beforehand to finalise some details, and heard workmen in the background. Heather suggested that all we’d need would be a slab and a roof……wouldn’t we?? Ha, ha??
The workmen didn’t get finished, so we are literally in a class room with a roof and a slab!!
but it’s lovely! The weather has been quite
hot warm, (Lynette insists it’s not hot, but I know it is hot!!), but the breeze is benign, and the outlook, as you can see, is juuuuust lovely!
I gave a talk on Saturday morning about using the templates, and it was great to have all my templates on display!!
with my quilts hanging
and one or two borrowed from Helen
and Mrs Mac
A fabulous lunch followed the talk
(I fear I’m eating way too much!)
with those golden eggs provided by the chooks in Heather’s garden
Those who were staying for the workshop ventured into Heather’s “shed” to shop for fabrics for their chosen template set, and all too soon were busy cutting….
This is Barb’s Pinwheel in the 12″
Val’s Parson’s Geese
Eileen’s English Whirl
and Kaye’s Icecream Sundae
After a full day, and with the sun sinking slowly on the horizon, it was time for a little snifter…or two
and more food!
and evidence of some more stitching!
It was the best way to end a lovely day……sitting on a green, green lawn, under the shade of trees, on a warm evening, with new friends…..so relaxing…….kookaburras laughing at us
…the moon on the rise….
and on the way back to Lynette’s, a stunning silhouette…..
