Lyn Tay­lor

LYN de­scribed the Cal­ico Girly Night In last week as a “real escape”. “Get­ting women away from the grind­stone and having a chance to put your mind in a dif­fer­ent place is re­ally im­por­tant,” she said. While Mrs Tay­lor only lost fences dur­ing the 2013 flood, she said it still brought a lot of ex­tra work and stress to her life. “You had to think about things like go­ing to chase the cat­tle be­cause they were eat­ing the neigh­bour’s lucerne,” she said, with a laugh. “Peo­ple can just come and sit here and it’s like a hol­i­day, no dis­trac­tions.” And Mrs Tay­lor’s work is good for the soul: when she isn’t chas­ing rogue cat­tle around, she makes patch­work quilts for sick chil­dren. “Gen­er­ally the only way I find out about the kids is from word-of-mouth, then I make them a quilt,” she said. “I give them away faster than I can make them!”
