After being so early last week, I am late this week. A busy weekend.
We had a really happy retreat last weekend at Kurri Kurri. 25 members came and lots of sewing was accomplished.
Suzie had us decorating items to be sold at our show next year. Some girls shared - one sewing and the other decorating which worked very well.
The Fat Quarter game this year was particularly fun. Two black and white fabrics were fought over by a number of us and a good time was had by all.
The weather was sunny but very windy and we didn't see as many kangaroos as last year.
A great big thank you to Narelle for organising everything perfectly. Narelle even had the staff at Kurri Kurri onside and singing her praises.
Iris brought along the box of 'orphan' blocks. Many girls tried their hand, sorting and trying various options. The end result was fantastic.
At our meeting Iris told us who had made which block. Lots of fun.
Our Birthday party is next week. Bring along a glass and we will have cake. I believe we are 37 years old which is a wonderful achievement.
We will have a show committee meeting at 9 am next week in the hall. There is quite an agenda, so come prepared.
Moina called in to stay for a while this week. It was lovely to see her after a long absence. She hopes to come more regularly from now on.
Show and Tell:
Iris and a quilt she is working on and part of the 'orphan' quilt being constructed.
A baby quilt from June. So soft and pretty.
Susan H. made her heart quilt from Helena's workshop into a baby quilt.
Susan D. made a baby quilt. The elephant block and the 5 squares were all from the box of orphan blocks.
Karen M. made this baby quilt. Lovely colours.
Gill finished putting together a bag which Suzie will sell at the show.
Iris made these mice for Robyn and her charities. Unbelievably cute!
Narelle made this cot quilt to be donated to a charity. The cats look super!
First go at the orphan quilt. Lots of hard thinking going on here.
Another photo from the retreat. Debbie U. took the photo above and below. Lovely to see the kangaroos. Thank you Debbie.
Until next week ....
