8/6/17 LIGHTS OUT!

We found ourselves in darkness in the kitchen and bathrooms this week. A quick call to HH Council resulted in the problem being fixed forthwith (in your dreams!). Nevertheless we soldiered on.
We really are lucky to have the space we do in spite of the few glitches we experience.

A good roll-up of members working on an amazing variety of quilting projects.
The gentleman who comissioned that gorgeous grey Wagga we showed last week, turned up to collect it. It resulted in the first $ we have been able to bank for next years show! Already! It was much more than anticipated also, so well done ladies. He obviously loved it and rewarded you generously.

Both the Traditional and the Contemporary Show Quilts are still looking for hand-quilting volunteers to complete them. Put your name down on the list, or simply mention your readiness to Grace or Robyn J.

It's now time for all of us who are planning to go to this year's retreat in September to ring the Redleaf Resort and book your rooms. The dates are Friday 15, Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 of September.


SHOW AND TELL

Only two items this week. This first one is a long unfinished quilt which Lindy has been making for her mum. Sounds like it's been 'resting' for some time! I think mum is going to be delighted !


And this little gem is by Susan H. It's the beginnings of one of her many spectacular bags. The ubiquitous hexagons strike again! And looking just delightful Susan. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Well, we are all looking forward to the Guild Show in a couple of weeks. Always some surprises and new things to enjoy.
See you next Thursday as always.
Cheers, Elva
