Exciting News Again


I heard this morning that Bushfire Sunset by Nic Bridges and myself has been awarded 2nd prize at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. It is so thrilling - I really wish I had been there for the announcement but can't really complain as I am having such a wonderful time in New Zealand.

If any of you are in Birmingham and want to take a picture in situ I would love to see it.

Today we had an early start for the five hour drive to Picton for the InterIsland ferry to Wellington.

It went quickly with such beautiful views as these.

I think I saw it today, but honestly there is so much here, I can't be certain. This doesn't reflect on your quilt, just the size of the show. I've been here for 2 days and my mind has gone mushy. I will try to get one for you tomorrow or Sunday.
Congratulations!!!!!

A wonderful quilt, congratulations. And your pictures are beautiful, all that space and peace is not a bad trade off for a very crowded quilt show. I know it'a apples and orange but ... best of both worlds.

It is absolutely lovely Lisa, big congratulations.

I have taken some photos of it in situ, and will post them to you soon.

Still in Birmingham, very tired, but happy ;O)

It was very hard to get a good photo ... people insisted on standing in front of it all the time, having a close look! Congrats on winning a prize; it was one of my show favourites!
