This week Grace was working on a Wagga made by weaving strips of fabric together and adding decorative stitches. Yet another way to make a Wagga.
Speaking of Waggas, as next week is our Community Day, we will be preparing Wagga Kits to sell at the Show. So join in and enjoy.
A very special Donation:
Bronwen, a friend of June's donated 9 quilts to our group this week. Bronwen is happy for us to sell or distribute "as we see fit."
Every quilt is beautifully made using the best fabrics and wonderful colours.
We were all stunned by Bronwen's generosity. There were many 'oohs and aahhs' as each one was shown.
Show and Tell:
Above are a selection of little birds we prepared at our "Booth" at the recent Craft Show. They are so cute.
The above three Baby Quilts are from June. The small squares in the middle quilt are from Hayley.
All three are very pretty and perfectly made. Thank you June.
Until next week ......
