Quilt sale this week

Hi anyone who reads this blog, this week I have decided to clear the decks a bit. I want to sell some quilts at much much lower than usual prices (enough to cover materials only) as my airing cupboard is full and I'd like to get some money together to pay for membership of the World Shibori  Network (plus possibly go to their symposium in China next year). Postage will be additional to the price.

I am going to Melbourne on the 10th of November so can post from there if anyone from Australia wants to buy something.

I will also be at the Whitireia campus in Paraparaumu this weekend for the Kapiti Arts and Crafts Trail if anyone wants to see the quilts in person. The campus is on the corner of Kapiti Rd and Milne Rd, Paraparaumu from 9-4 Saturday and 10-4pm Sunday.

London, October 2013

I've just had a really great day. Last night I booked one of those mystery hotels and it turned out to be a really nice hotel within walking distance of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in Southwark. So today I have been to the Globe and to the Tate Modern (and Tate BritAin to see the Lowry exhibition). Then after Dark I walked over the Millenium Bridge ,had a meal near St Paul's and took photos on the way back. 

I'm now nearly on my way back to New Zealand, I've been in Japan, Sweden, Estonia and England and my flight back is tomorrow. I've had reliable wifi only ocasionally so haven't been able to blog much.

I've got lots to process about my trip
