Thank you to all members who put pieces in the show- without you there would be no show, simple as that! And thanks to all of you who visited, worked a shift, contributed cookies, and spread the word about the show to all your family, friends and neighbours.
Gwenda M and Barb P blew us away with their spring decorations.Gwenda came up with the idea of songbirds to go with our "Symphony of Spring" title and she outdid herself with the birds, birdhouses and thread nests. Barb took it a step further and made 20 teeny tiny quilts to hang out of the birdhouse "entrances." After all it's been a cold spring and those mama birds have to keep their babies warm! Many visitors enjoyed and commented on these extra touches.
Lastly a big thanks to all who worked on the organizing committee. What a great bunch to work with! Tired as we were by the end, we all worked so well together. (I certainly enjoyed every minute of it as I'm sure we all did!)
So - on to some photos. I still have many to edit and once that's done, I'll create a "show photo gallery" which you'll be able to access on the sidebar to the right. To hold you until then, here is a quick recap....
