Pioneer Women's Hut (Part 1)

Wednesday we headed off to Tumbarumba for the day. 
 
 Beverley (SIL), Ian (BIL), Kerry, Tamara-Jade and Noel. 
I don't know where the boys are!
After lunch Noel, Ian, Beverley and I headed 
off to the Pioneer Women's Hut just out of town.
 
 Remember using one of these?
 There were quite a few quilts to see.
 They change these around at different times.

 
 How lucky was it that someone picked 
this quilt up off the rubbish!

 

 


 Next post I'll show you some more gorgeous handwork.
