Viewers choose Sea and Sky

 Kathy's quilt "The Sky is Blue, The Sea is Blue" has won second place in the Viewer's Choice awards at Toowoomba Quilter's Inc. annual exhibition held last month. 

The quilt is based on a photo taken of our daughter Michelle (below - left) and friend Matt taken at Fraser Island in 1987.  Today Michelle is a Registered Nurse currently in her second year of studying for a Medical Degree, while Matt is an Honours Graduate working for a pharmaceutical company.  If one were to take the same photo today, the chances are there would be other people and an army of four wheel drive vehicles in the picture.  Fraser Island as the world's largest sand island, is a beautiful place, but in danger of being loved to death.  Tempis Fugit!
