Bloggers catch up

Well, I have had such a good day, great company, great food, lots of laughs, giggles, chats, I am so lucky to have met all these wonderful ladies!
We met up at the quilt shop in Gisborne, which has recently moved to new premises, lovely light airy shop, and lots of goodies to look at! Some serious discussion going on here.....

and here.......

maybe even here.....

serious purchasing happening here!!

here we are a bunch of happy quilters....Elyte, Anne, Robyn, me and Marina.....then we headed off to lunch at Tracee's place....

the tables were set beautifully for lunch.....

we had baked spuds with lots of different toppings and salad....have a look at the desserts!!! And can you see Tracee's flowers? made with circles of woollen fabric...

...show and tell with Tracee's Perry's Place quilt...the binding is going on!! Tracee has worked so hard on this through last year, she had to do so much blanket stitching on this quilt and it looks amazing.....the quilting  is fantastic too and looks amazing on the back......

Tracee's 1600 quilt has also been quilted and looks fantastic! Don't the birds stand out? Beautifully modelled by Tracee and Tania of course!

This is what happened when I asked everyone to line up next to the post for a group photo.....

...you can't take this lot anywhere....well you can but then you have to apologise to everyone there!! Lol!! We had a giggle over pole dancing and splinter comments.....and then they laughed at me 'cos I thought the sign on the post said Dancer......then I looked again and saw Danger.....mmmmmm...no alcohol was consumed and I even had my glasses on!! Lol!!

Yep, the old me taking a photo of you taking a photo of me trick!! lol!

And finally a nearly serious photo of us all together....Marina, Robyn, Marg, Tracee, Anne, Elyte, Tania and me. Thank you for a wonderful day ladies.
Happy sewing!
