Quilt Hanging Part 3

DD2 and I were up at 5.30am on Sunday.After a quick cuppa it was off to hang the quilts and do the last minute touch ups on the displays.



On the drive to the Priory I was a little concerned at the black sky and the pretty rainbow!!!





           The quilts are all on the hangers .                         
So now the men will help us put the rest on ropes strung across from one balcony to another.




I see someone is having a coffee break. :)

There are some vintage cars for the men and markets for everyone.
The Blue and White Quilt in the background and the Butterfly one next to it are our raffle quilts.





                                   
So many Quilts and so many people.

Even my friends The Red Hatters came for a visit.



Awesome Xmas display.

Tiny "Lilliput"
Kid's display.



There were lots of bags and a cross stitch display and sooooooooo much more but the battery in my camera went flat. :(
To see many more lovely photos pop over to

P.S. We did have a few showers but for the rest of the time it was just perfect.
