look at the view I woke up to this morning!!!
Of course when I went to go outside to the deck to take a photo or 2, the ranchslider door was frozen shut!!! so I had to lean out the window...
we have been rather busy over the long weekend - Queen's Birthday weekend is historically the Masters South Island Rowing Reggatta, where lots of middle aged "crazies" get together and compete in a fun way - yep on the lake in their rowing boats, sculls etc, freezing cold 'n' all. I reneged this weekend and stayed at home playing on the quilty toy, as I had several quilts that I wanted to get done for a few friends, but I did enjoy the Sunday evening dinner and dance, oh what fun!!
On Saturday, our local quilt group held an exhibition,
some months ago, we set ourselves a challenge, and 10 from our group decided to take this challenge on,
we all started with the same group of fabrics,
each person brought along 3 strips 21/2" x WOF,
so we ended up with 30 random strips -
our own personalised jelly roll you might say,
we were allowed to add only one other fabric, for sashings/borders etc,
and look at all the different interpretations,
absolutely everyone has done something very different -
such a lot of creativity... how amazing!
do you belong to a group, and what do you do??
have a fun week,
p.s. hmmm my signature seems to have disappeared again, strange things happening here in blogland - I don't always seem to be getting updates for everyones blog on my blogroll either....
More about the birdies!
