Quilts in the Garden

Hello Friends.....I hope this beautiful Friday finds you productive and well.






 As Autumn is looming I have been thinking of investing in a few more Quilts especially after attending "Quilts in the Garden" at Poppy Crafts over the summer. I was truly blown away by the quality and the craftsmanship of these quilts especially after learning that the women ( Poppy Patchers) who created these masterpieces had only been doing so since October 2012! here are some pictures I took of the day enjoy......
Just look at these quilts.....



Handmade goodies



Budding friendships were formed

Sewing classes were taking place in store!





 These women clearly love the art of quilting as their quilts were both stunning to look at and touch....there were almost 30 quilts and over 100 other handmade items on display for sale and raffle...all to raise funds for Harmony Therapy Trust which provide complementary therapies for terminally ill individuals. I took my famiy with me to enjoy the day and support a great cause....the events of the day raised £240.00......friendships were formed.....items were happily won and purhased and lots and lots of laughter and smiles all round. I had a truly remarkable time and I am not missing next years event for anything!



Have a wonerful weekend....
