Our caravan trip to Taupo was planned to collect my quilt from Linda at Razzle Dazzle Quilting. Of course, it could have been couriered home to me but……..what if it went missing, got stolen, or damaged – the possibilities just didn’t bear thinking about. Call me a worrier by all means, but I much preferred to collect it in person. And as Robin always says, it’s an excuse for another trip away! But first things first – it was time for a trip to the local laundromat.

And what a busy place it was. Locals came and went, plus people passing through the town like us. A group of French people came it with bags and bags of washing and started loading it into the driers. So I approached them and pointed out that the washing machines were over on the other wall – and they thanked me for helping them. They had so much laundry that they loaded up machine after machine.
Later in the day we went to see Linda and her sister Peggy. There is a lookout on the top of their hill, with a great view of Lake Taupo, and always full of tourists clicking away on their cameras.

And here it is – my lovely quilt, expertly quilted by Linda. There is beautiful free hand quilting around each floral heart and the ric-rac border, I’m so thrilled with the work she did! And I can’t wait to get it home and put the binding on, (something which I prepared earlier, as the TV people say) so I’ll be ready to start. Thanks so much, Linda.
