Very Sorry about this

Yes we went off to Bundy town to attend the Bundaberg Quilters Friendship Day. On arrival we were greeted by the smell of coffee and tea and a wide selection of goodies to eat. A quick chance to browse the market stalls and the day began. Margaret Brady the President of Bundaberg Quilters welcomed us all and we were suitably entertained by a selection of trading cards and quilts, bags and more quilts. The continuous raffle began and we soon found out who owned the lucky seats. Margaret handed over to her secretary who introduced us to musical chairs Bundaberg Quilters style. After much laughter we all managed to unwrap our parcels ( no one missed out in this version) and we then enjoyed a lunch break. More chance to visit the stalls and chat. More quilts on display for Show and Tell, followed by more continuous raffle draws. We all had badges made of yo-yos or suffolk puffs given to us at the door. The prize winning ones had flower buttons ( how cute) of various colours for the lucky door prizes.
The raffle quilt with proceeds to the bushfire and floods appeal was drawn but not won by a Mt Perry member. More food and drink followed at afternoon tea , then it was time to leave. Luckily Spotlight stays open until 5pm these days. The sorry part is the cameras never made it to the event and you missed out on a good time.
