This version of Kelmscott was made by a lady who was looking forward to meeting me but sadly passed away earlier this year. The blue and white version was hand appliquéd by Darlene……….
So a little more about Terang. The buildings reflect past times of wealth but sadly some are in serious need of restoration especially this wonderful small arcade 'Johnston Court'………..
There is a large avenue of oak trees down the centre of the High St with more wonderful buildings…...
Darlene owns The Good Old Days Quilt Shop and this is the first time she has hosted a tutor. I am not sure she realised how much work was involved but then again I have a feeling that she may have spoilt us all way too much with the scones, cakes and sandwiches….and that was just for morning tea!! Then yesterday was homemade pumpkin soup with freshly baked rolls, followed by chicken and salad. Today was homemade chicken soup followed by corned silverside and vegies! But her mammoth efforts were appreciated by us all and I was thrilled that I could do the workshop for her……….
A visit to her shop was a treat where hanging on the walls were two of my quilt designs…..all hand appliquéd (needle-turn) and also entirely hand quilted……...
Thankyou Darlene for asking me and for your kindness and generosity to us all. Thanks also to everyone who came………if it wasn't for all of you there would be no workshop! It was also a great surprise to have some of our 2014 Whitecroft William Morris tour guests come to stitch as well! Jude and Liz………..
and Marilyn and Jenny…..so very exciting……..
So tomorrow we head home…another 640kms to drive so in total we will have travelled about 4,340kms (2696 miles), and in just two weeks….so it will be time for a good rest when we get home! Thanks for sharing our journey and more soon when we are rested x
