A Sewing Weekend

Last weekend I headed up North to Russell with 3 of my quilting friends.
We stopped off in Whangarei on the way up to check out the Whangarei Quilters Show.
A really good show.
For some photos check out http://quiltwhangarei.blogspot.co.nz/

 We stayed in this great B & B
The house was moved to Matauwhi Bay in 1990 and lovingly restored
by Marilyn and her late husband Allan.

The breakfast menu on Saturday.
After breakfast we moved to the large room Marilyn has set up for sewing.
As a quilter herself, she enjoys having groups of like minded people stay.
 Wendy talked Annette into a jellyroll race.

 At their machines ready to start.
 Wendy is winning so far.

 Still smiling event though she is losing by miles.
And the winner is Wendy
Annette's finished.
My Sudoku quilt
 In the evening we had this lovely fire to keep us warm.
My room.  All the rooms had lovely quilts on the bed.
We had dinner out each night and all up had a wonderful time.

  1. Sound's like a really fun weekend. I'm from Tauranga, but my home town is Whangarei, and just happen to be heading up their next week. On my blog is pics of the Tauranga Exhibition if you're interested.
    Nothing like heading away for a quilting weekend with the girls!
