ANOTHER BUSY DAY! 12/5/16

The hall seems to be getting busier each week. It must be a show year!

And in addition to our own show in August, the Guild Show is coming up at the end of June. We have been successful in gaining some display space where we can promote our group (June 25th). Iris has sent a list of questions about how much space we will have etc. We will ask for volunteers once it's clear how many people we will need to man the stall. Thanks Iris.

Finally we have working front door cards again! When it's your turn for morning tea duty, don't forget to get a set of keys and a card from one of the execs the week before.

A reminder for all those attending the retreat in a few weeks (can't wait!) to give Narelle your baby/toddler photocopy as soon as you can. She needs to organise that activity before the weekend. Also don't forget a wrapped fat quarter if you are intending to participate in that game. Bring some comfortable shoes for our little Tai Chi session as well. It's a bit difficult in heeled shoes!

New batting is in the cupboard ready for sale. 

SHOW AND TELL

At last a few show and tell items:
Iris showed four quilts intended for community.

The first is the 'blue' done by Gil, using the very last of the Christmas Challenge blues. Wonderful that two quilts were made from that challenge. Thanks Gil for taking it on, and what a result!

                                

And in addition it has a matching bag. I suspect this was made by Iris, but I may be wrong! Lovely anyway....

                                  


The second community quilt ready to go is Jenny's which was just a top last time we saw it. Looking fabulous in the finished mode. Well done Jenny.

                                


Thirdly, Robyn S, Maree G, June and Jenny have put together this stunning quilt, using Carolyn's scraps apparently. It is a 'quilt-as-you-go' production, and looks fabulous.

                                 


And the fourth quilt is another made from Akiko's donated silk. Orange group are responsible for this gem. Well done girls. It looks stunning!


                            

So, as well as those community quilts, Maree K showed one of her new designs. Susan St J did the quilting. Gorgeous!

                                  

And so, ever productive, we ended another week of fun and stitching.
See you all next week. Happy quilting!
