I'm Back and A Quilt Show!

I'm back from our outback adventure to the Kimberley and the 
Kandiwal Aboriginal Community at Mitchell Plateau! 
In fact, I've been home about 3 weeks or so.
What an amazing time we had. I have so much to share. 

There are over 2,000 photos and 500 videos. 
My iCloud storage ran out of space so not everything uploaded.  
I've been trying to upload them the old fashion way using a usb cord 
but it's not behaving itself. I'm now slowly going through
 every photo on my phone and cross checking 
that they have uploaded to the computer.

So what have I been doing in these past 3 weeks?
No sewing sadly!
I was preparing for the NOTYQ Quilt Show of which 
I was the convenor. There were so many beautiful quilts.
 The Viewer's Choice winner was Linda with her "Colour My World"

Second Viewer's Choice winner was Monica with her "Nebula".
 I entered my "Lillian Elizabeth's Kitchen" quilt. 
It is very exciting to tell you that I won Viewer's Choice 3rd prize.
(Not a very good photo) 
Here's a better one.
After many years of giving out rosettes at the 
quilt show, I now have one of my own!
So now it's back to my Kimberley adventure photos. 
It's taken me many hours so far and I'm only half 
way through, not counting the videos!
