My workshop in Henty

Janice – who belongs to The Applique Guild of Australia – organised a two day workshop in Henty, just out of Albury, NSW.

I drove up on Friday 4 March on a stinking hot day.  Had car trouble – and $400 later all was well!!

I stayed with Janice and her husband John in their beautiful home – wow… beautiful scenery for miles around – so unlike living in the city and it takes some getting used to – and of course I could get used to it very quickly! Thanks Janice and John for your hospitality - I felt very much at home!!

Saturday morning turned out to be another hot day but thankfully the hall was air-conditioned.  The workshop was at St Paul’s Lutheran Primary School.  Joanne part of the P&F Association organised all the meals for us – and they were yummy! So thanks to the mums who cooked and served the meals - and looked after us so well.

4 quilts were chosen – Birds Eye View, Minerva, Tulipa and Mosaics.  Two days of quilting with your quilting buddies – what more can you ask for?  And I get to have all the fun too!!!  Here are some of the "usual suspects"

Lynne told us the wonderful story of having won the Victorian Quilters raffle quilt that was made by Margaret Mew, Jennifer Murray and myself a couple of years ago  -  and only looked at the label recently and realised that I would be doing the workshop in Henty and decided to come to it.  She brought in this beautiful quilt for show and tell.
