This photo was taken at home on one of our social get togethers. I always give my friends something to work on when they come to visit. That day I had them making dollie brooches. They had so much fun decorating the dollies with ribbons and beads. Dzintra is in the red dress. Dzintra told us that day that she was moving to ACT. She was not sure about moving away from Bathurst after sixteen years. Because I have made many moves in my life I told her she should move. I told her a change is as good as a honeymoon LOL! (did I say that?).
A little Guardian Angel Quilt I made for Dzintra when I visited her in ACT a few months after she left Bathurst. She still has it hanging at the bottom of her steps in her new home in Batemen Bay. I hope that the Guardian Angel does look after you my friend.
Terry, Geo and Claire at one of the Flying Geese Quilter's meeting in Bathurst. This photo always reminds me of the Flying Geese Quilters. Apart from the flying geese quilt on the table, you can see the airplanes on the wall. The Flying Geese Quilters meet each Thursday at Bathurst Aero Club, Bathurst Airport. When we were sitting there quilting we could see the planes landing and taking off, and Thursday the flight scheduled seemed very busy. It was the coolest place for a quilt meeting. I do miss it a lot.
This was a going away quilt I made for Claire when she left Bathurst. I asked all the members to make me a block each. The only rule for the block was pink heart and you know? Not one heart was the same!
Here was my heart I made for the quilt. I put the quilt together and hand quilted it. Claire loves pink and was very touched when we gave it to her.
This was another quilt down my memory lane. I made it for my dear friend Edna who was in hospital at the time. Edna was a very kind dear lady, she took me under her wing when I first moved there. Because she accepted me, everyone else did too. It was not easy to move into a small country town where everyone already has their circle of friends. I was lucky to have met so many kind ladies and they are my friends for life. Sadly Edna passed away soon after I gave her the quilt.
