Here is the promised photo of my quilt interesting that I hadn't taken a photo of it previously. I have just designed a word document that I can load photos into and am making a quilt journal. I'll print the pages off and put them into a folder with the plastic inserts and I will finally have a record of all the quilts I've made.
Today I spent the day at a friends and used her long arm quiling machine and quilted 4 baby quilts will take a photo once the binding is on them.

Prize winning quilt

Well this is me looking really excited what a dreadful photo maybe because I really hate having my photo taken.
Anyway I won my quilt won Best of Show in my guild Pinestream quilt show. Actually I was probably still not recovered from the shock as i couldn't believe I'd won. See the cup I'm holding I really won.
The batteries in the camera decided to finally die on me so I haven't a larger photo of my quilt strangely I didn't take one when I'd finished it so when Bob comes to see the quilt next weekend I'll take a better photo. You really need to see the whole quilt.
My friend Jenny mananged to get a better photo so hop over there and see and read her excellent blog which she keeps up to date.
So can't bet that one can ya.

I also had a wonderful weekend the ladies from the Pinestream quilt guild in Upper Hutt are such a lovely lot I enjoyed their company at yet another of their retreats. I managed to get a lot of quilting done and when I have bought the new camera batteries I will post photos. And as usual the food was delicious and plentiful.
