- I attended the Project Hexagon Exhibition at Nathan Homestead, a heritage arts, culture and events centre. Built in 1925 it has beautiful grounds and gardens too. Over 30 quilts in varying colours, styles and sizes were exhibited all made from hexagons. The majority of quilts on display featured hexagons based on the book, The New Hexagon. Some quilts were hand pieced and others machine pieced. Over 1000 pre-quilted loose hexagons have been donated, and these will be stitched together to make quilts which will be distributed to Auckland Women's Refuge and the neo natal ward at Middlemore Hospital.
- Enjoying some vicarious garden visiting through this post and for those who really want to experience colour, craft, food and friendship, check out this beautiful post.
- A little retail therapy - some for my AMH quilt, some for Ice Cream Soda Blocks, and a tiny rotary cutter for easier fussy cutting.
- Meeka, was she sheltering from the sun or trying to camouflage herself under the rhubarb leaves?
Hope you have all had a lovely relaxing colour filled weekend too.
