Benita, of Victoriana Quilt Designs, has created this to encourage and inspire quilters from around the world via a wee bit of blog hopping. She has put together a great list of quilting blogs for us all to visit over the month.
And even better, every blog you visit during the party gives you a chance to go into a draw to win an amazing grand prize!
How does it work? Visit the blogs on the list, enjoy meeting new bloggers and seeing what they get up to. Click on the link to enter for the prize. That's it!
We have until October 1st to do the visiting - I'm so relieved it doesn't have to be squeezed into a few days! AND the prize will be shipped to anywhere in the world so we all have a chance to win :-)
My role as one of the guest bloggers is to introduce myself and my quilting.
I'm Raewyn, I live in the northern part of New Zealand...in this part of the world that means we have a 'sub-tropical' climate. My husband and I are dairy farmers. At this time of the year that means plenty of this —
As I'm actively involved in all aspects of our calving and the chief calf rearer it means a busy time outdoors and little quilting time indoors.When I get a chance though, I do enjoy my time in The Palace (as my husband calls it). Benita asked for a quilt picture to include in her promotion and I hurriedly sent her this one, my latest finish (isn't our latest finish often the latest favourite?) —

I'm very lucky to work part-time at my local quilt shop, The Country Yard. This of course is the ideal place for someone like me :-) Last year we had a great time sewing the Moda Be My Neighbour quilt as a sewalong. What a relief it was to get this huge one finished earlier this year.

Birdy Love was the result - I still love this quilt and am tickled pink that I was able to pull this programme off!

It's been quite a blast from the past going through my blog looking for photos to share here!! It's also been rather daunting noting how many unfinished projects I have packed away within the posts of my blog - which means they're floating around The Palace somewhere too, waiting ever so quietly for me to get to them!
Thank you for your patience getting this far in the post!! I hope you take the time to visit the other bloggers taking part this month as well. I'm looking forward to meeting new bloggers and keeping the bloglove alive.
