High Tea & a Show and Tell

Gisborne Quilters had their Christmas break up at the beautiful Campaspe House in Woodend
This was organised by two lovely ladies Tania & Amanda
They had decided on a High Tea affair which was absolutely divine. There is nothing better than having an array of the most naughtiest foods laid out before you in one of the most gorgeous rooms of Campaspe House which is a 1920's Manor which is set on 15 hectares with 2 acres of elegant gardens designed by the late Edna Waling.


 
So many delicious treats, the scones were extremely light and fluffy.
 The ladies did a show and tell of this years challenge quilts the theme was Australia and or a Poetry Quilt.
The Galahs at Ayes Rock was made by Marg absolutely stunning.
 This is Australian Hands of friendship created by Sue each set of hands is sitting around our sewing table in Gisborne & represents each and every one of us at Gisborne Quilters
This is my set of hands it also includes the Reiki Prayer
Soooo very clever.
 
Another piece by the very talented Sue Hand painted and Machine quilted this is a very stunning piece.
Here we have Donnas quilt, this is also amazing the gum leaves actually hang off the quilt giving it the 3D look.
Donna has also made this as a gift for her Hubby for Christmas I'm sure that he is going to love it.
