A sight for sore (quilting) eyes

I have not been on my computer in over a week to even read blogs, let alone make a post myself. School has been incredibly busy with 3 prize-givings in 2 days and junior exams (which I am still marking the tail end of - darn, still need to finish them before tomorrow!) Then I have to have my junior reports done by Wednesday and I had a bit of the 'lurgy' for a few days as well. I had to cancel my Friday night group, something I haven't done since we started it years ago. Needless to say I haven't touched the sewing machine either. To cheer myself up I am posting a photo from our Mystery Bus Trip which I am sure you will enjoy as much as I did.
This was the fence outside Griet Lombard's new home when we arrived (and I humbly apologise for incorrectly spelling her name in previous posts) and isn't that a sight to gladden the heart of any quilter?? What a fantastic welcome. I wonder what the neighbours were thinking (garage sale perhaps :-) or did Griet warn them, I wonder)?

It is interesting to see the sun was shining because about 20 minutes after we arrived the heavens opened and the rain pelted down. I was pleased to see Griet's husband Willem (I think I've got the spelling correct) had taken the quilts in before they got wet:-)

PS: Thanks to Judy for the photo and Griet for permission to post it
