FULL HOUSE AGAIN! 2/6/16

The hall had members aplenty again compared to last week. I think we've all acclimatised to the cold, wet weather at last.
Retreat girls had plenty of feedback from our fabulous retreat at Blackheath last weekend, and lots of projects being finished.

Thank you to Audrey for the wonderful gift of a pile of fabric. This has filled our community quilts boxes, and even left some over for general use. It will all be turned into magnificent treasures!

Iris is collecting names for a mini roster to man our display space 'stall' at the Guild Show on Friday 24th June. We have it for the whole day, so more help is needed to make sure there's always someone there to chat to visitors, answer questions and help promote our group and more importantly our show! Please let us know if you can give up an hour or two. Cheers.

SHOW AND TELL

Lindy showed three new baby quilts she has made for the Grace Centre. All much admired by the group. Thanks Lindy.





                               


Iris showed the little ballerina quilt she was working on at the retreat. This will be a community one, and definitely for some lucky little girl!

                                    

Laurel showed the community quilt she designed at the retreat from a  Kathy D fabric range. It turned our very nicely indeed Laurel!

                                     


Maree K similarly had one from the retreat to show. Possibly another Wagga for Gil and Doreen?
Very nice indeed. Love the binding. Just lifts it nicely.

                                     


Gil showed another version of her foxes, which has turned out beautifully! It's such a delightful design!
Well done Gil.

                                       


Iris showed a UFO which she has finally finished, and very nicely too......

                                       
  

Also another which she was working on at the retreat - looking very good!

                                       

Norma was working at the weekend on a nice binding for this cosy red blanket. It is destined for use by Sudanese refugees. Thanks so much Norma. Keeping your hand in!

                                      
 
And so a chilly but productive day came to an end. 
See you all this Thursday for more stitching, fun and companionship!
Cheers all.
