Yesterday I spent the day in the company of some lovely and talented ladies at the Summer Gathering of the Victorian Quilters which was hosted by Camperdown Clocktower Quilters.
As the ladies stitched, the Victorian Quilters held an informal meeting in the morning. We also saw some beautiful quilts in the Show and Tell session. We were very lucky to see a couple of Janet O'Dell's antique quilts.
Unexpected entertainment for the day was the cricket match that was being played on the oval outside........every now and then there were screams of howzat and lots of yelling and cheering as someone went out!
The VQ Raffle Quilt was on display and I will have tickets available soon.
I was also the guest speaker for the day........I am used to talking to groups of people but I have to admit that I was nervous about whether I was good enough given the calibre of the audience. They all made me feel very welcome and at ease and seemed genuinely interested in what I was talking about. It was lovely to have my Mum come along for the day, and although my shop kept me busy during the morning, I was able to spend some time with her during the afternoon.
A big thank you to everyone!
