New Zealand Quilter




The other day  I had to kill some time whilst waiting for my eldest daughter to finish her exams- it wasn't worth going home and  I forgot to take my travellers blanket to stitch. So how do you kill 2.5 hours of time- I leafed through various magzines in the newsagents and had a look at New Zealand Quilter which always has a good selection of different quilts articles. Imagine my surprise as I flipped through, to find my Climate Chane quilt taking up a whole half page lenghtwise- you can even read the writing! The two other quilts on the page are left to right; Gloria Loughman and Jenny Bowker. More images of the exhibition can be seen here, as well as statements and resumes for each of the quilters involved.

Thank you all for your kind wishes for our impending travels- I am trying to reply to you all individually, but my week has been taken up by mundane chores- taxes have to be done before I go so that everything is in order and I don't have to worry about it whilst I am away ( I hate hate hate doing taxes and always put it off until the absolute last minute, so I am feeling quite virtuous having them done before Christmas- another task off the list )

And then finally the sun has come out- and it's almost instantaneously summer- very welcome after all the rain!

What a buzz for you Dijanne!

I want to thank you for giving me a big push! This week I joined a quilting group. ( The first time I have joined a real, live, breathing, people type group!) I had a ball! The Stitching and Beyond Group, in Hobart. They all had amazing things to say about you! I so wish I had been "out there" in the real world when you came down here.

After the rain, the sun always comes.
I wish you lots of good things for your new life. The weather was fantastic near Montpellier last month. I regret I won't be there to welcome you at the end of November. Hope to see you soon.
