It was lovely to see everyone again this week. Some members were away as we often find during school holidays.
I read out the September Birthdays - a favourite task of mine.
I received a lovely note from Penny, a former member who is now living in Bowral. She has joined a group of quilters there and also works two days a week. We miss her.
Jenny, Iris and their group put the wonky stars we had all made, together for the quilt top for the Lord Mayor's Picnic Raffle. It is bright and happy and looks great. Thank you to everyone who contributed, especially Iris and Jenny for taking up the challenge.
Jenny announced that she has bought 3 new books for our library. They are quilt-as-you-go patterns.
We have a large selection of books in our library. Take some time to browse the books when you can. They are there to be borrowed.
And joy of joys, the council finally cleaned out the fridge in the kitchen. It is sparkling! Let's hope it stays that way!
Items of Interest:
* The Rosehill Show will be moving next year from Rosehill to Darling Harbour (where the NSW Guild Show was this year). It will be on from 14-16 February 2019.
* Fabric designer Amy Butler has announced that she will be creating only one more range. She will then concentrate more on her books. I am sorry to see the end of her ranges as I have always loved her colours and patterns.
* Womens' Shelters:
There was an article last week in the North Shore Times. Three womens' shelters were mentioned. One of these was the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Womens' Shelter that we supported this year.
The article said that every time a shelter opens, it is full in a week.
I am so glad we were able to contribute to such a needy cause.
Show and Tell:
Robyn Jnst. made this cot quilt for a friend who is living in Darwin. The family loves to go camping so Robyn found some camping fabric for the backing.
Another baby quilt for the Westmead Hospital from June. June has a talent for colours. It will be lovely for a little boy.
Until next week .....
