The craft quarters mascot

This cutie is Amber. she belongs to Estelle, but has become the shops mascot. She is a great dog, who sits and watches and sleeps.
You hardly know shes around she is so quiet! Normally she will sleep in the middle of the tables, they are arranged in a square, but lately she is trying to find the sun. Amber is an elderly lady and her joints are not what they used to be. So the sun helps to warm them.   She is a great dog, and loves any attention you would like to give her, but will happily just be and not bother anyone at all.
Thanks Amber, you are a gem!

A beautiful creation by Pam

 This gorgeous quilt was made by Pam as a gift for a wedding. You can see Pam in the second photo.
We wanted to do justice to the quilt and show off the colours so we all went outside, carrying two chairs, so we could get a photo in the sun.
Its a massive quilt, made in the king size. Its a french braid pattern, using a wonderful New Zealand fabric called paua. she has teamed this with the range called shadow play.
A truely magnificent Quilt.
Well done Pam
