Quilts In The Barn Eve!!

The books are here!!!
All 6 boxes of them, weighing a mere 15kg per box.

For those who have pre ordered them, this is just a friendly reminder
 that l can only accept cash payment for them.

These are  my helpers having a pre hanging meeting.

Here is Anna filling the bookshelves.
We also have Petra and An's book,
Promenade in A Dutch Garden,
and An Moonen's book,
The History of Dutch Quilts.

All systems go!!!
See Mary and Joe Koval in the background hanging their antique quilts.

The first few go up!!

Some last minute binding being done on one of my quilts.
Thanks to Jill and Kim for their help, or this quilt would not be bound!!

And just when we had the garden looking spick and span,
we had a wild and wooly storm come through today.
And to my great disappointment,
my favourite tree in the garden came crashing down!!
So it was all hands on deck to get this cleaned up.

Huge thanks to Meredithe, Jill, Kim, Anna and Chris for all your wonderful
and invaluable help in setting up for this years exhibit.
And of course, to Mary and Joe Koval for making the trip here again this year.

So fingers crossed,
we are all set for the Grand Opening tomorrow!
The Quilted Crows are here and set up,
the quilts are all hung, and the cuppa's are ready to go!!
Don't forget to say hello if you are coming by!!

Thanks for visiting,
