Another busy meeting this week - almost full house which is always good to see. Now that the show is over we can concentrate on other things. Had an email this morning to let me know that Christmas is 14 weeks away!
As September 22 has been declared a public holiday in memory of Queen Elizabeth, our next meeting is on 29 September. We will celebrate our 40th Birthday then. Please remember to bring a glass for the toast. We are allowed to sing this year so I hope you will be in good voice.
We have received a very nice letter from our contact at the City of Sydney about the Lord Mayor's Picnic. Unfortunately the City has made the decision to no longer proceed with the Lord Mayor's Picnic on New Years Eve. They will therefore no longer require us to make a quilt for raffle. We have made some pretty spectacular quilts for this event in the past so it is very disappointing.
Alison and Sandy looked through the cupboards to find dark fabrics to be used for the Days for Girls kits. Alison, Sandy and I washed and ironed them over the weekend. The lovely sunny weekend was very welcome.
Show and Tell:
Two quilts from Sue D. this week. The first uses the disappearing four patch blocks. The second is an Irene Blanck pattern. Irene's patterns are great for applique and hand stitching.
Until next week .....
