Open Weekend continued

Our open weekend was very successful with many people through the doors checking us out and seeing what we have been up to. It was a fantastic opportunity for our community not only to see what we have been doing but also to see what quilters as a group have been doing in New Zealand as we had the Aotearoa Yellow Challenge on display as well as the Floral Challenge. These quilts are small by quilters standards but when they are hung together enmass they make for an incredible display.

Our merchant was Wise Owl Quilting with some beautiful fabrics available to purchase. 

My purchases, just couldn't resist the colours and designs.

Can't wait to use these tapes to brighten some future projects, rolling them into empty spool should keep them tidy.

It is Labour Weekend here in New Zealand this weekend which is the official time of planting your vegetable garden if you are wanting fresh produce for the Christmas table. While I haven't planted a lot so far I do have seedlings coming along nicely and have planted a courgette or zucchini as they are known and our lettuce and strawberries are doing well. Hopefully we will make some more progress with getting things planted over the weekend although I am working tomorrow and are catching up with family on Sunday so Monday might be quite busy.

Have a great weekend everyone and we will catch you back here soon, until then happy stitching.
