Lunch with Linda and Peggy

We spent a delightful time yesterday talking quilts at the home of Linda and Peggy.  Linda is the genius behind Razzle Dazzle Quilter (do check out her blog) and I had asked her to work her magic on the quilt top I had recently completed.  We had kindly been invited to lunch, and arrived, with the caravan in tow, as we were heading off to Rotorua after our visit.  It was just as well that the ladies were not watching too closely while Robin maneuvered our 4WD and caravan onto their property – that was certainly a bit of a challenge.

Show and Tell took place as Linda showed me several recently completed projects, plus a couple of others which were due to be started shortly.  A quilter cannot have too many things on the go, can she? (Ask me how I know.)  Then we discussed the quilting and batting to be used on my caravan quilt.  Linda had several ideas for hand guided custom quilting, and after seeing some of her work on her blog, I’m sure I’ll be really thrilled with the results.

Then it was time for lunch, thanks so much ladies, and we admired the wonderful view from the picture windows, looking out over the Waikato River.

Then it was time to say goodbye, and we were sent on our way with a little home baking to keep our strength up!  I took a photo of the two sisters standing in from of Peggy’s lovely quilt, made with a new fangled curved ruler.  Linda did the quilting on this beauty too.  Peggy is recovering from surgery, and we wish her well for a speedy recovery.  Do check out her blog too, she writes as Kiwi Klippings.

Arriving at our destination in the late afternoon the caravan was soon put on site.  And what a great site we have, looking across Lake Rotorua to Mokoia Island.  Happy Camping indeed.
