This week we have not one, not two, not three, but 14 quilters of the week. We arrived at the Oakville Museum, bright and chipper on a beautiful sunny day. The temps were a bit crisp, but that didn't deter everyone from arriving with sewing machines in tow.
Dawne had arrived back to Canada the week-end before after spending her winter in South Africa.....a true snowbird!
Patti and Irene sat side by side and worked like a pair of troupers. Liquid nourishment close at hand!
Barbara, Rosemary, Dawne, Pat, Patti, and Maureen along with everyone else there accomplished so much in one day it boggles the mind.
Chris and Judy were proud to show off their accomplishments. Every girl made at least 2 quilts for the children. These are left-overs from Judy's grandson's quilt.
Elaine Sparrow made a few quilts before she even arrived at the workshop (as did many others) and I have no idea how many she made while she was there.
Maureen shows off a beauty while Ursula keeps working on her quilt. This lady came out to the workshop after having her foot operated on the week before.
and one more....................
Throughout the week, I'll feature more of the workshop. It was an amazing day! Thank you,
Dawne, Patti, Barb, Melissa, Sharon, Rosemary, Judy, Ursula, Pat, Andree, Maureen, Elaine, Chris and Irene.
