We had lots of door prizes and raffles to draw as well as Jacky Hens quilt trunk show. Sally from Dreamswork talking about photography and Jacky and Jean hamming it up with jokes and a skit about a pussy who met a dire fate. Not bad legs in those black tights Jean!! I even played up being on my crutch with a touch of Pirates of the Carribean.
Our DH's helped out throughout the day from hanging quilts, providing security, lifting and carrying and lots of other jobs. Also the local RSL sub-group members cooked the sausage sizzle lunch. Our photographer Terry managed to stay behind the camera.
I know you shouldn’t write in capitals but it was a BIG DAY AT TOOGOOM CCC!! Shame you didn’t make it. It was a fantastic day.

Me, well, I have to admit I took to my bed. Not in a fit of pique but as a result of a ruptured Baker's cyst in my knee which was just starting to recover from replacement surgery. However the team have been great - including DH - and with lots of help, from Pam in particular, the 'airing of the quilts' is almost sorted and it is now up to the weather whether we really get the quilts aired on the tennis courts or in the fishing club shed. We have over fifty quilts for the display.
I have been looking for a pirate hat and a parrot to go with my hop-a-long look as I do my job on the microphone on the day but so far have only been able to find a few feathers in my craft cupboard. I think a hired pirate outfit would clash with my CCC pinnie - you'll have to come and see - mmmm
