Thursday's travel stories came from Betty, who emailed to tell us about the fun time she is having in Alaska and we wished Robyn and Graham a safe and exciting 3 month trip by caravan to Geraldton.
A reminder from Grace about the Round Robin Challenge. Finished quilts will go on display at our Christmas lunch on Thursday 12/12/2013. And don't forget to keep your diary up to date as it is very likely that Alison will make a 'Challenge' book, incorporating both the pictures and the stories.
Four new quilts were added to our stash for the kids in Nepal. Rhonda will be picking them up on Thursday 22/8/2013 and she will tell us all about the project.
