What A Wonderful Day

Hi everyone,

Well, despite much heart searching it was decided that the 4th Annual Stonestead Quilt Festival should go ahead, and with much scurrying around all 60 quilts were hung by 9.20am.

It has be said that Te Marua seemed to be the only place in the Lower North Island that had fine weather and as the day progressed it became better and better, I must apologise to all those people who phoned and the phone was unanswered, we were outside hanging quilts!

Anyway a huge thank you to everyone who helped make the day such a good one, everyone seemed to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and looking at the beautiful work that was on display, the Official Greeters Bailey and Poppy were a little too relaxed at times, but when you are a dog sleep is very important!!

As a taster I have posted some photos of the day along with the names of the winners in each category, I shall be posting more pictures over the next few weeks so come back and check.
