Lunch in Chinatown


This last week my mum-in law and I went out for a traditional chinese lunch with the ladies (and Terence) from "Granny Quilts". We were treated to lots of different kinds yummy food and my first time eating Peking Duck. Delicious!! The ladies have been working so hard and it was lovely being able to share this meal with them and try some local food as well.


Today I got a copy of the article about "Granny Quilts" in the "Voices" magazine. This is a local magazine put out by the Central Districts Council Development Board which our co-operative is part of. Its great publicity for these ladies and a real encouragement for them.



I have started a new quilt this week. It is based on a photo that I took of the Marina Bay Bridge in Singapore. I have been playing with this photo in Photoshop and even managed to print it out to a workable size. This quilt will be a bit different to other quilts that I have done so we will see how it works out! Watch this space!

My "tree" quilt will be winging it's way to NZ later in the year as it will be going to my Mum and Dad.

Well thats all for now...Happy quilting!
