Hello my friends.
A couple of weekends ago my eldest daughter
and I joined in with a bus load of ladies to go to
Palmerston North for
Tote & Gloat.
To see quilts,shopping at stalls, hear and meet the quest speaker
Part of this was to make a block unfinished 12 1/2.
As Lynette Anderson was the quest speaker mine was
from her book
`It`s Quilting Cats & Dogs`.
A close up of dog and cat.
Also the bird in it`s cage on top of car.
This my daughters block.
A Bee Tree design.
She buttonholed the shapes on by hand.
And the embroidery was hand stitched too.
I didn`t get photos of the other blocks.
All up for this there where 38 blocks.
Our bus left at 4pm so wasn`t there at the finish.
A bit sad about that.
There where over 500 tickets sold to attend.
A few of the quilts on display.
I did get to meet with Lynette Anderson but forgot
to get a photo. I was pleased to give here a block roll.
A little more on sampler,watching post for rods to come.
A little start on this one.
I used a wet tea bag to sponge colour to match design.
Using called for threads.
These where delivered to me yesterday.
From a sister-in-law in regards to Mum`s passing.
It has been three months.
Well best get on.
