The weather was kinder to us this week, although it was still quite warm in the Scout Hall.
22 members gathered. We set the tables up in a long row, which I liked. We normally sit with the same friends each week. With this different arrangement, we get to mix more and chat to members you would not normally speak to. I really enjoyed the morning.
Thank you to Debbie A. and Helena for morning tea. With the heat we don't eat as much so the light morning teas are perfect.
Deadline for the black and white blocks:
Message from Iris to ask that your blocks be in next week. Jenny and Iris put the ones we have received on the design wall this week. I must say they are pretty spectacular. Thank you everyone for contributing so quickly.
Achieve at Balmain:
They are looking to finalise a permanent outlet in Balmain. Many of us visit for woollen fabrics for Waggas and other bits and pieces so this good news.
Community Day Postponed:
As we are betwixt and between at the moment, we will sew as normal next week. Our normal Community Days will resume once we are back in the hall.
Mark in your diaries that the retreat this year is the first weekend in May.
Show and Tell:
Only a couple of baby quilts this week.
This one is made with 'Quilt as you go" blocks from Sheila. Sheila has used fabrics designed by Kathy Doughty.
Jenny has made this very colourful baby quilt using techniques learned during a workshop with Alaskan quilter, Maria Shell.
Until next week ....
