Open Studio Weekend Part 1

Last weekend was the Open Studios weekend for Boonah, Aratula & Tarome in the Scenic Rim area.  AliQuilts hosted one such studio.  We began the set-up on Friday during rain (oh, there were a couple of long faces for a while - not knowing if this weather would continue throughout the weekend!)

Ali's garage was slowly turned in to the "Garage Gallery" featuring a SAQA quilt exhibition & textile pieces from Ali George, Mel Forrest & myself.

Postcards received from IUOMA members were also on display.

Ali demonstrating & Hilary soaking up the knowledge.

Al's husband, Chris, supplied the suasage sizzle, Jen & Sue kept us going with coffee & Ian & Dick supplied the moral support necessary.

The weather did not disappoint us & guests took the opportunity to sit out under blue skies & warm sun.

The moon even provided us with a show from Ali's verandah as we sat to enjoy an well-earned drink.Ever seen a halo over the moon?   So endeth Day 1.
