Just wanted to share a few photos from the Quilt Norfolk Getaway last week. Hubby (John, the one with the long grey beard) and I have just returned from a really enjoyable 10 days on Norfolk Island with a really lovely group of people. I taught two workshops over 4 days and along with the other tutors, Michelle Yeo, Meredith Budd and Meg Orr and the wonderful Quilt Norfolk organisers led by Rowena we had the luxury of having many other days to explore. Quilters from all over Australia and from New Zealand (some with their husbands) all shared a little bit of what the locals call "Norfolk time". Norfolk Island is very small, only about 1300 residents on an island about 8km x 5km. It has a rich history and is very beautiful. Animals have right of way on the island so with cows and chooks and geese roaming around it's a blessing the speed limit is set so low. It's such a great place for a peaceful and relaxing break. I sometimes think I could live there, but then I return home and remember all the wonderful things I love about where I live in my little peace of bushland heaven.
