Trip to Pentzplaas, Bultfontein

On Wednesday Karin and I took a trip to a farm just outside the small town, Bultfontein, an hour's drive from us.  One of our guild quilt groups, The Tolbosse, arranged an exhibition for us and what a lovely day it turned out to be.

On our way, with the usual breakfast, just off the N1, we were caught by both STOP/GO road works and this kept us waiting a full 20 minutes the first time and somewhat shorter at the second stop.

Arriving at the farm with its tranquil surroundings all was forgotten.  Here Mari√ętte welcomes Karin.

Live music gave an extra special vibe to the day and I thought this was a great idea.

Unfortunately I enjoyed it too much and was frowned upon when I made a couple of dance moves.

Seriously ladies, we don’t stop playing/dancing because we get old, in fact we get old BECAUSE we stop playing/dancing.

Needless to say Karin and I shopped for fabric we didn’t really need……….. so what’s new?

We got inspired by all the beautiful quilts on display and choosing a winner was not an easy task.

After shopping and looking at all the displays, we could sit back and enjoy the treats prepared for us.

Not as much fun returning home but we had to, however not before Karin could strike up a pose!
