Good bye Rosie.

Well I had to say good bye to my friend Rosie and her husband....

After a few days together and some good chats with friends we had an afternoon at the movies with about 130 friends from Squilters.....
We went to see the movie..... THE TENTMAKERS OF CAIRO....
It's not one I would rave about or choose to see on my own.. Unless you wanted to follow the Egyptian revolution in 2012-2015.. But there were amazing quilts being worked on and made by men. Brilliant and fascinating.
Now time to say goodbye I thought.
But Rosie had other ideas.. She had bought me a gift so I went back to her accommodation. Here we had a chat over a glass of red wine. We chatted about next years venue... And look at the glass she is using. She bought one for me... it says.
SCQ 2017 Retreat .... Mildura, Victoria. and has a picture of a paddle steamer.....
All etched in.... THANKS ROSIE & GRAEME...
Next years retreat is at....
I wonder if I can go..
Let's hope... There is a special person I could meet if I went... Of course I would travel with Rosie.. and maybe a few others..
Until next time Rosie.


  1. I have seen The Tentmakers of Cairo in the flesh at the NEC in Birmingham at The Festival of Quilts, about three times! They are amazing men, making their traditional Patchwork creations, no patterns , just snipping and appliqueing at amazing rate of knots. I'll see if I can find a photo of their work, I know I took some!

  2. Lovely to spend time with Rosie and to go to the movies together. Hope you can get to Whanganui next year.

  3. Hopefully you will make it Jo to NZ next year....such a beautiful place
