On a personal level, Trevor met with Architect John Blair yesterday and he has agreed to design our new house – how exciting. Almost all of Trevor’s work in the past three years has been John’s design – they are great.
The Queenstown Embroiderer’s Guild co-hosted our annual Friendship Day in Garston (45 minutes south of Queenstown) on Saturday. It was an uncharacteristically cold and bleak day there. We meet with other ANZEG members from Fiordland, Invercargill, Gore, Dunedin, East Otago. We had a fantastic turn out of over 60 ladies which made for a lovely display of work. We felt we may need to find a more appropriate venue to cope with the growing number of ladies travelling to this day.
A lovely shared morning tea was had and then we caught up with other Guilds news and programmes for the year together with a bit of stitching. Here is a pic of our Tea Cosies which were a guilt challenge last year for the launch of our recipe book.
