Back in blogland

I'm sorry I haven't given my blog priority for some weeks. It has been quite busy.
In my last post I told you that I was going to have a course. It was an interesting weekend with very concentrated students. There were 5 - three of them from South Africa. I taught them basic patchwork. Unfortunately I forgot my camera the last day, but below you can see a few photos from the second day.
The colours on this table runner was much better than the photo shows.

The African ladies stayed for two and a half week. Every day some of the members in our Handicraft Association had activities together with them. The guests taught us beading which they are very good at. It's very interesting to learn about culture in another part of the world and get new friends.
The last weekend they were our guests, they joined a quilting retreat. It's a yearly event in our quilting group to arrange this meeting. 50 - 60 (from a large area) quilters use to gather at the local guesthouse - sewing, talking, eating - just to have wonderful days together. Some ladies even arrive early in the week to have more time. I'll show you some photos in the next post.
