Thursday was a day of ' thank yous': we received a thank you card for our quilt donation to the Annual Fair at Inala and a thank you email for our donation to the Relay for life Fund Raiser. Betty was back from her holiday, so she brought in the thank you parcel which had been sent to her from Sunshine Homes: we shared the chocolates and the other 'goodies' in the box will be used as a 'lucky door' prize at our end of year Christmas lunch on Thursday 12th December.
Reminder from Robyn S: the need for cot quilts for the Grace Centre continues. So if you need a quick quilt gratification - whip up a cute 26 inch square, all cotton baby cot quilt. It would be good to have a new supply ready for delivery before Christmas. Robyn has the cotton wadding that ready for use.
Community donation: this is from an over-achiever !! Remember last week - 7 days ago - I showed a picture of work in progress:
This is it on Thursday ... Grace works wonders ! It is finished - even the hand quilting and binding ! Great quilting with variegated crochet cotton - there is some in the cupboard for everyone to use. The fabric was a gift to Laurel from an 'old' HHQ girl, now at HobbySew ( I hope I've got those facts right, Grace - if not correct me in a comment, please !)
Show and Tell ... a wagga, started by Gil and Doreen at the 'working with wool felt' workshop, and then picked up and finished by Grace. The hand quilting lines add order to the random shapes of the wool felt. Illustrates what you can do with 'just little bits' and a creative imagination!
And a 2nd 'exhibition' quilt in two weeks by our other prolific quilter, Jessica. The theme is 'Water, Warp and Weft'.
Thank you to Alison for being this week's photographer - I forgot my camera.
Have a productive sewing week, Cheers Iris
