Mystery quilt photos

Sorry......that title is misleading....it is actually photos associated with the workshops - not the big mystery quilt reveal yet as it is still a mystery to several groups!
Thanks Faye for the photos....looks like the weather was a little warmer than the current conditions!
 Pt Broughton quilters looked like they had a great time....lots of piecing there Helen........maybe a Christmas tree garland??!

 John perusing the scenery while Val irons, irons and irons - what great helpers!
 And the volunteer class helpers from left to right: Val, Helen, Margie, Faye and Lessa
 Back at the ranch..........Sonja and Roma with yet more cutting, cutting, packing, packing....
 Gorgeous view Lessa........sorry!...blame Faye for that one!
 And so begins the packing and posting of quilt kit orders all over the country..........
 ......it takes over Faye's house for months - thank goodness for our tolerating husbands!!

I have two boxes of kits packed in the car which I am hoping to offload on my travels as we continue the fundraising.........happy stitching to those of you still waiting to do a mystery quilt class!

Australian Quilters raise $$$$$

Sorry folks for the lack of posting....maybe I need a few photos please of some of the workshops!! I have only managed to get photos of the ones I attended (and a sneaky one sent to me below - gotcha Jude!)

The photos below are what you really need to see and what a whopping effort!! Yes $75,000!!!! Well done to EVERYONE. I believe there are more kits for sale so email Faye if interested: fsae@optusnet.com.au

 From left: Lessa, Sally from Bedford and Faye with the whopping $$$ below!
