Community Day and the start of Spring!

Not that you'd know Spring has sprung. It was as cold as ice outside, with occasional rain. But tucked up in the hall, a happy bunch of ladies were stitching away making quilts for community use. It's a wonderful feeling. Susan put up what was left of The Lord Mayor's picnic quilt blocks, with a few already completed. We all agreed it's going to be another beauty this year!

Thanks to Kathy D for the donation of another copy of "Collaborative Quilts" to replace the one we lost from the library. Very generous, as it has become a valuable book. We are all alerted to the dangers of on-lending and/or forgetting to fill in library cards as books are borrowed. Can't afford to lose any of our books.

Next Thursday is our birthday party celebration. Thanks to Betty and Narelle who will take care of refreshments for us. Try and remember a glass for yourself, or some plastic ones might be available as well. 

Audrey reported on the financial success of our 2014 show. Another triumph despite numbers being down. Some areas of the show obviously did better  business than last time. Just shows that all the work pays off in the end. Well done everyone.

You may have noticed already that the show photos of the quilts are now on the blog. Thanks to Alison for this work. More photos to come I believe, and possibly another book which many are looking forward to. 

A reminder that The Lord Mayor's picnic quilt blocks are due back  on the 9th of October. Gives us plenty of time to complete them. 

And finally to our show and tell. 

Robyn S has made this beauty called "Leftovers"

This red and white number doesn't have a name yet. Put together from some donated squares for a community quilt. I'm planning to finish it with a bit of hand quilting in the border. Any name suggestions would be appreciated. It's been fun......

Lindy has made this as a Christmas present for her sister. Can't believe it's getting near that time again! Nice job Lindy!

Jill working on another baby quilt for the Grace Centre I think. Looks wonderful!

And finally a few round the room shots showing girls working away on community quilts.
Have a great week till we meet again.
