From One Sunday to the Next

Or how I went from sublime to septics in seven days...........

On the first Sunday in September I travelled to Wonga Park to see the wonderful "Quilts in the Barn".  I caught up with Linda, Bev, Dorothy, and Peter ( actually Paul, bit of an in joke sorry).  I met Jo Morton, just one of the biggest highlights of the day.  Speaking of highlights......... First was admiring the Barn and the raffle prizes and Linda's tumbler quilt top...its still growing....I think!  Then there was one of my favorite shops, that  could see close to the entrance, that would be "the quilted Crow".  Then there were the quilts!!!!!  I definitely needed a cup of tea and the sustenance of sausages and scones before going on......I'll let you see for yourself while I sit back

I did mention meeting Jo Morton and her delightful husband didn't I?

 This is me, Jo Morton and the lovely Linda.
                                         Jo and Linda

With Kristen, who is a fellow member of Jo's Internet group.

But, we also had alot of fun!
I met Linda's Dear Dad.

Her spirited sisters...

And lots of photo's were taken by everyone....

Here is Jo's husband helping out

and here is Linda trying to get a photo of Jo taking a photo!

And then there were Jo's quilts........

 These are just a few of my favorites!
 Then in the other half of the barn was Linda and her Jo Morton sewing group's quilts....made with Jo's fabrics

 Then onto shopping!

 I've joined the "This goes with that " club from the Quilted Crow.  Great value and Jo's fabrics!
 The Quilted Crow has lots of Jo's fabrics and Divine wool to work with!  Do visit them via their web site and if you happen to be in Tasmania it is worth going to their shop!
I purchased a pear.......now residing on the dining room buffet!

And of course those lovely Jo books.  Jo very generously donated them to the event to aid in the money raised for breast cancer research. I was able to pre- purchase via Linda's " Quilts in the Barn" blog!

Then as I left we saw what Bev was working on!!!!!!!!

 Paul very kindly let me leave with a few of these amazing oranges.....a big thank you!
 And I will tell you one funny story of many during the day!

I have a tendency to ..ooh and aah...as expressions of  wonder when I see beautiful quilts........ I was admiring away,... when I noticed one lady looking at me...so I apologised for making a squeal of delight at one of Bev's applique gems.....she commented that she thought I was disabled......I wasn't quick enough to think of the perfect reply.......that I did have Terret's syndrome!

And Yesterday I was inspired by an aerated septic tank system!
Do click onto a photo to see it in more detail and up close and click on the magnifying glass to get even more of a close up view.  I hope that you enjoy the quilts as much as I did.  Maybe I will hear a few aahhs soon!  Love Karen.
