Two Great Nights Out

Thursday night I crossed the Harbor to North Sydney for an inspiring evening with the legendary Gwen Marston.

She generously shared her journey  of quilting with samples and techniques explored over 30 years. We laughed as she mixed humour with a detailed explanation of her experiments with solids and the results.

Gwen's  animated delivery engaged us all in the discoveries but made photography tricky. I departed ready to expand my quilting with more solids. I am glad quilting always gives me new challenges and wonderful people.
Friday Night tonight DH and I went to the movies. The Lone Ranger was so so funny. From radio to television and a wonderful spoof on the big screen. A great night out.  I highly recommend it.
Have a fun weekend. Terry

Gwen Marston is such a great quilter!
I just love her work and her advise!
You sure had a great time!
Enjoy your weekend.
Love, Ria.

Animated is so true. Gwen has so much energy, I had trouble catching photos too because she moved so quickly, plus you just get taken with listening and forget to take photos. I'm looking forward to sharing some sewing time and solids with you.

How lucky to hear Gwen's speak! I was hoping to see her exhibition in Taupo, but unfortunately it only starts today while I'm flying home. I always love solid ever since I discovered Amis quilts! Will have to collect more of solids...
