Every year, about this time, my favourite quilt shop holds an exhibition.
The Country Yard, near Whangarei in Northland (New Zealand) is on this beautiful property.
|Come inside the house - what treasures do we see...?|
|Rooms with quilts displayed throughout.|
|All made from fabrics, kits, classes from the shop throughout the year.|
Also items worked on at the weekly Stitch and Chat sessions.
|This is not a judged exhibition, more an excuse for everyone to show their work.|
There is a Viewers' Choice Award. Won by this beautiful Sampler quilt made by Jill
in this year's Sampler Class.
See more of this beauty here.
|This is the shop. I perch at the door on these days meeting and greeting visitors, |
while lots of activity goes on inside.
Raffle quilt on the door.
|Inside the shop were more quilts and the challenge entries.|
This year the challenge was to create something from the shapes supplied.
Won by the gorgeous dilly bag and accessories on the table.
|Beautifully manicured gardens make the day a delight.|
|Our son was married here a few years ago - it was very magical.|
PPS (Disclaimer statement!) As you can tell I am totally biased, I do work here part-time. Lucky aren't I?
Have a great weekend everyone,
