Inspiration in the Upper Hunter

A busy weekend in the Upper Hunter. Denman held it's annual Food & Wine fair yesterday...lots of food & wine tasting plus jazz. There were steaming dishes of Paella, Sydney Rock oysters in the shell, wood fired pizza & noodles...lots of different tastes & even a BBQ school. it was a fun day as usual...big crowds & lots of opportunities to catch up with old friends.I hung around with this crew...wineglasses hanging around their necks!
Today we headed for Scone to the north where Scone High School were fundraising with a quilt show. Lots of lovely quilts on display...a few stalls...and an exceptionally good book stall run by the partner of one of the quilters...happy to hunt down new & used quilting books. Shrewd business man that he is has noted the market for good quilt books & is keen to help the local quilters! Maybe there will be a treat for me for Mothers Day???
Here are some pics from the show...
The next quilt was a foundation pieced miniature...very nice!
 
Made by my friend,Raelee!
