Snake Gully and a give away

Snake Gully Quilters are a group of girls in and around Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley.
From memory this is my third year of travelling there for a weekend of fun and laughter with some sewing thrown in.
My gracious host Liz feeds and waters (read wine) me and I always come home with vegies or plants from her garden. A really lovely lady!
Rolling star blocks and Matiah with her Art Deco Lamp - she's 13 and a great little sewer!

Over the two days we were tackling my Rolling Star quilt and a circular table centre.

Show-and-tell from previous visits

 They are a very productive group with a fantastic sewing room and a great bunch a gals.
I'm booked in again for next year too.
Now for the give away as it's my 251st post. Who would have thought I'd get this far. I'm finding it hard to make the time lately to post here when Facebook is so quick and instant.
I'm giving away my original circular table centre taught at Snake Gully.
It measures 30" across and was foundation pieced and machine quilted.
It has giant ric rac around the outside edge and is made from a French General range of fabric.

To enter please leave me a comment - Australia only for postage reasons - and I'll select a winner next Monday.
Wish me luck for Saturday. My darling son is getting married and I'm to walk the 2 1/2 year old flower girl (my granddaughter) down the aisle before the bridesmaids. I'm pretty sure I'll be carrying her!
