It is the first week of the school holidays for NSW. Our group was a little smaller as a result.
The Sensory Mats are due on Thursday May 10. For those who haven't finished theirs, you will need to get a move on.
Grace will be collecting them on the 10th.
Merlyn and Val have been to visit Doreen during the week.
Val had lunch with her and said she is in good spirits.
Merlyn was able to give Doreen some information about her accommodation as her brother also is staying there.
It was wonderful to see Joy back this week. She is not 100% but is much better.
We were sad to hear that Quiltsmith at Annandale is closing the shop. They have an amazing selection of fabrics and many of us bought fabric there.
With increasing rents and expenses, the owner has decided to go online.
They are currently having a sale with 25% off everything.
Show and Tell:
Robyn and Iris packed 50 baby quilts to take to the Grace Centre at Westmead Hospital.
Our cupboard is now bare, awaiting a refill.
Marie K. made this lovely hexagon quilt for our Community stash. Marie is very talented at putting colours and various fabrics together. Her quilts always look stunning.
This is another quilt for Community. It is a joint effort between Gill, Val and Doreen. Elephants are always a favourite. Lovely work.
Iris asked Marie K. if she would be able to make a matching bag for her hexagon quilt. What a great bag. We all wanted it! Thank you Marie.
I will be away next week. Grace has kindly agreed to step in for me. I hope you enjoy the the rest of the school holidays which includes Anzac Day next Wednesday.
