Yesterday morning I hitched a ride to Taupo with my friend Catherine and her hubby Paul. The day was quite wet and miserable, so it was a good day to go to a quilt show. While Paul chatted away to various people, Catherine and I did the rounds of the quilts with our "expert" eye...lol. There were some nice quilts and I finally remembered to take some photos, but I need to learn to hold steady as there were a few fuzzy ones...sorry about that.
Razzle Dazzle Quilter did the awsome quilting on it. Then I did love this one made from lots of Kaffe Fasset fabrics with Suffolk Puffs of all different sizes....fun.
Aren't they just so gorgeous. Not sure if I would have the patience to make them all, but I love ém. I thought this was lovely too and very nicely made.
Isn't this a lovely quilt too. I am rather taken with the flowers and the stems of course are made from ric rac which looks great.
After a visit to Linda once we had feasted on quilts, we headed back home to Waipukurau. We stopped at this posh restuarant in Hastings for late lunch come dinner - just trying to think of its name...it begins with M and has this great big sign outside with a yellow M on it....oh I remember now....McDonalds...vbg.
Today after church we were going to have lunch at our favourite place in Waipawa, when Mr Moore plaintively said, "I wouldn't mind McDonald's" Well, what could I say...you now know that I have had two helpings of junk food this weekend! Both from the same posh restuarant too!!!!!!
The good side of ending up in Hastings was that I went to see if my favourite hairdresser was on duty today. Yay....she was...Hinnepare is so good with my hair and I was really happy to have a good haircut finally after the last disaster. As I was leaving the Plaza, bumped into friend Marie. Had a lovely chat and I asked her to take a photo of my haircut, then in return I took a photo of Marie to put on here....we both talked about hating to have our photos taken, but what the heck. Have decided at my age I don't care anymore!! My hair is till wet so does look a bit funny and oh my goody gumdrops do I see some white showing there!! Eeek.
Doesn't she look so lovely, I think so. Well, after a couple more stops at exciting places like Mitre 10 and Jaycar for man stuff, we cruised home. A jolly lovely weekend with not much work done by me. Back to the heart quilt tomorrow...I have finished all the blocks and will be starting on the 3 borders left in the morning.
The end is in sight.
So that's the big catch up. I hope you have enjoyed this very long post...it's a bit of a saga, but then my whole life has been a saga. We are all on a journey aren't we?
Have an awesome week and may you have many blessings along the way.
