Wednesday Night Natterings

 Wednesday nights are always so enjoyable down at our Gisborne Quilters Meet ups.
We discuss all sorts of interesting topics from how do astronauts poop in space to how the country should be ran and what our politicians are up to.
We often have someone in the group with a completed item that they show 'n' tell also.
Here we have Margs Quilt Aid Quilt (2009 edition)
There is so much work in this and it has turned out just lovely.
It was also quilted by Kerri Thomas from Blackforest Quilting in Macedon.
This is Annettes lovely quilt and let me tell you this is huge.....and heavy
So much work in this and Annette quilted this on her own domestic machine..Well don Annette!
A little bit of craziness going on here with Sue making great progress on her Crazy quilting
and this is Sues gorgeous sheep or is it a wolf in sheeps clothing...oh the questions that we ponder on.
My son Darcee arrived after his first shift of work at Food Works and gave us all a giggle when he thought that it was an Armadillo.
Carol had another mug rug arrive from her daughter just in time for Easter.
Isn't he a cute rabbit and so clever to...balancing an egg on his head.
Now this one here is a worry...the thought of all those bunnies out there looking for their tails.
Now how stunning is this...Carol was busy working on this for one of her grand children...
1 down 10 to go Carol.

What amazing work,especially love the embroidery in the last photo. When you guys have worked out how the country should be run PLEASE come to WA and sort out our current voting for the Senate. Votes keep on going missing, I am beginning to think it maybe those rabbits!

Thanks for sharing your evening with us.

Happy days.

Lots of lovely things happening on a Wednesday night in Gisborne. Beautiful quilts and please pass on my congratulations to Marg. I think that Sue's sheep is very, very cute even if it might have armadillo genes.
