Moama day 1

It’s been such a fun day!

The morning dawned with a clear blue sky, just a little on the chilly side, but the sunshine was so appreciated after the grey, wet skies of Melbourne this past week.

20150516-171814.jpgOoh – when I went to put that photo in, I saw another and need to back track…..last night’s dinner!

20150516-171913.jpghow could I forget? Delicious home cooked silverside and scrumptious veggies. Hmm, hmm.

Anyway…..back to today.

For the weekend I’m teaching a class I call “Appliqué Basics” in which I demonstrate and talk about different methods, techniques, tricks and tips for needle turn appliqué, using this as an example

20150516-172156.jpgBy late this afternoon all 11 students had “sample stitched” some pieces and were setting up for a block.

20150516-172357.jpgHaven’t they done well?

20150516-172433.jpgAs usual, Heather had beautiful flowers

20150516-172509.jpgand fabulous food

20150516-172531.jpgIt was so pleasant to sit outside at lunch time enjoying the garden

20150516-172700.jpgeven in late Autumn there’s lots to see

20150516-172734.jpgand the last of the roses are just stunning.

20150516-172810.jpgHearing a “bock, bock, bock” I looked to see….

20150516-172939.jpgwho was soon joined by another

20150516-173023.jpgwith no food in the offing from me

20150516-173135.jpgit was time to depart!

20150516-173205.jpgAfternoon tea was delicious orange and poppy seed cake

20150516-173323.jpgAll day long I’d been admiring Paula’s pretty basket, so took a pic to satisfy the basket envy.

20150516-173407.jpgLynette joined us and sat fairly quietly stitching the binding on this quilt for her great nephew

20150516-173520.jpgI think we all had a productive day! More soon……

    What a lovely weekend you’ve had!! And it looks like a great place to do a workshop. Isn’t it nice to get away sometimes and enjoy the company of like minded women – teaching then is not a chore at all – I never look at it as work!!

  2. I am jealous just for the food alone!!!! And that cake!!!!

  3. lyn lindsay says:

  6. Kyle says:

    Your photos always make your retreats look so inviting. Spending time with other women who are as passionate about their needle work is so inspirational.

    You in Australia pay such attention to little details in your fabulous lunches, gardens..and needlework. I am always so impressed and go to bed every night hoping to wake up in Australia as your NEIGHBOR!

    The applique started here looks so pretty! That cake looks delicious- now I want to go bake something as well as stitch something :0)

  9. Love that bag. I want to try appliqué. Maybe Dear Jane. Do you think that is far too impossible for me.

  13. Heather Wells says:

    Thank you for coming to teach at Heather’s Quilting Emporium once again, Meredithe. It’s always a pleasue to see you. Looking forward to you coming to teach us some template magic on July 18th & 19th. Don’t forget if any of your friends would like to come and enrol in a class they are more than welcome too x

    It looks like a perfect day. It’s so funny that you mentioned silverside — Kellie mentioned it at market — I’d never heard of it and had to look it up!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
