We had a busy meeting again this week.
* Josie's daughter, Jane, arrived at 11 a.m. with a lot of fabric and bits and pieces from her Mum.
Everything was put on two of our tables and members gathered around to sort it all and take what they could use.
Not only did this help Jane a lot, we picked up useful items for Community quilts or for personal use.
We know each other so well that members were instantly able to know who would have the most use for each item.
Jane was very grateful that we were able to take so much. It is a fitting tribute to Josie's memory.
Jane also told us that she had purchased a plaque in memory of her mother. It is on a park bench at Jeffrey Street Wharf in Kirribilli, overlooking Sydney Harbour.
* Later in the day, we had a visit from Anne Sheehan from the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Womens Shelter.
Anne presented us with a framed certificate of appreciation for the generous donation we made to them from the proceeds of our show.
She said it has meant so much to them.
* During a visit to the Hunters Hill Council, I discovered that the vacuum cleaner in the hall is for us all to use.
It is quite heavy so will only be used if the floor is particularly dirty from crumbs and bits of cotton.
We are all very good at checking the floor for pins and needles.
* Next week will be our last meeting for the year. Our Christmas Party will be on the following Thursday from 11 a.m. onwards.
Bring a plate of food to share and a glass for your drink.We have fun and games. It is a nice way to end the year.
