The Springwood Quilt Show 2015

The quilt show's not 'today' anymore, in fact a week has flown by since the The Springwood Community Quilt Show, like a rocket with turbo boosters, but here are my photos of this year's show, better late than never.

The Springwood Quilt Show is this weekend!!

It's the Springwood Quilt Show's 10th anniversary so it's bound to be better than ever. The show runs from Friday to Sunday, from 10-4pm daily, and is held at the Springwood High School, Grose Rd, Faulconbridge. The hall will be filled with quilts made by quilters of the Blue Mountains. Rhonda Pearce is the guest quilter with her beautiful award winning applique quilts. You can read more about Rhonda and see photos of her quilts on the Springwood Quilt Show blog. And of course there will be lots of vendors with an abundant amount of tempting wares, and delicious meals and snacks being served.  

For the first time in my 5 years of taking part I'm not sewing on labels the night before. My quilts are all neated stacked and ready to be dropped off for the big hanging day, I was going to share a photo of them all in a pile but I didn't get home till late and it's too dark now for pretty pictures. 

But I couldn't possibly have a post without photos so here are some I've taken recently. 
Most mornings Mr Daisy and I go for a walk in our local neighbourhood. We head off quite early and sometimes just as the sun is rising. 

Is that a star still shining in the sky or a UFO whizzing by?
