I've been AWOL
I missed both the July and August club meetings, so sorry no show n tell from them.
You can go to the
to see photos from the meetings and more.
Anyway here's what I have been up to.
I went to the Clubs retreat at St Francis is Auckland, and started a stripy blue quilt.
And also sewed up a cuddle (minky) box of fabric.
The weekend before that I went to the Jazz & Blues Festival in Paihia.
My favourite acts were Chihiro Yamazaki + ROUTE14 Band from Japan (above)
And Austin Walkin' Cane from USA (below)
In July we went to Melbourne for a holiday, and enjoyed the Trams & Trains.
Had a lovely sunny day to visit the Bathing Boxes at Brighton Beach.
Was still cold though (it was mid-winter) hence my funny hat.
I did visit one quilt shop, Queen of Fabric in Brighton.
Australian Tapestry Workshop
Went on a few Yarra river cruises.
Went to see the
at Melbourne Museum
And of course walked the Laneways.
