The Hunters Hill Quilters celebrated our 37th Birthday this week. The group started in 1982 and has been going ever since. We were fortunate to have two of the original members with us as well, Carolyn and Margaret.
In fact they arrived just as we started to sing Happy Birthday. Pretty good timing!
We had another busy day this week. It started with our Show Committee meeting at 9 a.m. We are underway with bookings etc ready for our show next August. There is a lot to do.
Sandy brought in a huge bunch of Continental Italian parsley for us to share and the kitchen was in very safe hands with Heather and Joy in charge. Ann also contributed two slices. Everything was delicious.
The Crafts and Stitches team is hosting the Newcastle Show from September 26 - 29 in the Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Broadmeadow. Hours are from 10 am to 4 pm each day.
Hayley joined us this week and showed us photos of her 'new' island home in the Torres Strait. I hope she can visit us again before she goes back.
A big thank you to Kerry and Narelle for providing the beautiful cakes and drink for the Birthday.The table looked so pretty as you can see from the photo.
Baby quilt from June.
Baby quilt from Robyn S.
Two lovely ladies with their medals. It was Helena's first marathon! What an achievement.
Akiko ran the half marathon and came first in her age group. She was disappointed that her time was just a tad over last time, but an hour and a half sounds pretty amazing to me!
Congratulations to you both.
Three baby quilts from Carolyn.
There was another baby quilt from Robyn that was made from orphan blocks leftover from a show quilt.
It has mysteriously disappeared! I will take another photo for next week.
Until next time ....
