A quilting Golfer

Quilts are found everywhere, and in some quite surprising places.  We recently stayed in the caravan at Rangatira Golf Club, in the wilds of Ohingaiti on SH1.  Golf clubs welcome caravans and motor-homes to stay in their grounds, and most offer power, water, showers and toilets.  As well as bringing some extra funds into the club coffers, people staying overnight deter burglars, break-ins, and boy racers.

Hanging in the ladies changing rooms was a small appliquéd wall-hanging featuring a tree and lots of numbered pockets, with words like birdie and eagle.  Now I’m no golfer, but it looks like the ladies place their number into a particular pocket when they have played well.

The wall-hanging was signed on the back and made in 2006 by Marg McAlley.  Wouldn’t it be great if one of you lovely readers knew her?

Jenny, I'm not a golfer at all, but this is one super wall hanging. I too hope someone knows the quilter, so she can see all her lovely stitches on the net, world wide!, Cold rain here, thunder and lightning. Enjoy the time away, Cheers from Jean
