The first month of the new year gone already !

A couple of Event updates:
  • The Retreat information is now available - 16th to 18th May at Redleaf Resort, Blackheath :Kerry has the details.  Add your name to the list for a weekend of sewing, talking, laughing, celebrating, shopping and fun.
  • And another reminder of the AGM on 14/2 and to get your nominations to June asap.
Book Review:  Alison K was so disappointed with her new internet quilting book purchase:  Quilts inspired by Jane Austen,  that she felt the need to advise us all not to buy it !     A case of 'don't judge a book by it's cover' .

Stepping Stone House 'thank you':   Grace read us the 'long'  thank you email that she received for our 'Santa' donations to the kids at Stepping Stone House.  If you would like to read it again - just let Grace know.

Show and Tell: 

I noticed Susan D. was working on a quilt that  we hadn't seen before - so Susan shared it with us:  a little girls quilt.  
My picture does not do Susan's  pretty quilt justice

... and the butterfly detail

Henny showed her just finished Teddy quilt for a new baby due to arrive in the next couple of weeks.  We also enjoyed the love story of the baby's mum and dad. 

'Ain't love grand'


The wagga 'queens', Doreen and Gil  have done it again:  check out the fringing  ...

Another good week at HHQ   ...   see you next week.   Cheers Iris
