Stitching and chatting

Elva was visiting family in South Australia,  so Judy was our leader for the day.   And she had lots of news:

  • Reminder of the Show Committee Meeting next week at the Baby Centre:  Kerry has distributed the agenda for the meeting.
  • After many years, Redleaf is no longer operating as a suitable location for our annual retreat, so our booking for the May retreat has been cancelled.   Judy is working on an alternative in Kurri Kurri and has 'penciled' in the last weekend in May.
  • Colleen has had to cancel her visit to our Christmas party.  However,  the celebrations will still include,  good food, glasses of bubbly, fun with 'June', and all the good cheer of the season with good friends.
  • Sue reminds us that the morning tea roster is ready for next year - don't forget to add your name.
     
  • Meg, her daughters and her granddaughters featured in an article in last week's Sunday Life magazine about girls' weekends:  'The Moodie Girls Weekend'.   Good reading.  I liked the bit where granddaughters had to wait until they were 21 before being allowed to join.


Show and Tell  ...   and there was lots:

Beryl's Circles:  worked on at our last retreat and now at quilting stage



Laurel showed us her latest finished top:  a scrappy Japanese design made for a friend.   Delighted to have a visit from Laurel after her move to the Southern Highlands.




Sheila had this beautiful quilt to show,:  check out the fabulous fabrics,  use of stripes and the detail in the quilting.




Lindy has just finished this cute 'Rocket to the Stars' design



Not a quilt 'show and tell',  but a fashion show:   Doreen rescued this cape from the wagga wools and decided that it was perfect for Akiko.    



and just as everyone was packing up, I spied this block by Narelle.   A simple way of making an eight pointed star without the dreaded multiple seams in the centre that never seem to line up properly.


Have a fun stitching week  ....  cheers Iris
