We had a bigger rollup at the Scout Hall this week. It is really very pleasant at the moment with the cooler weather. It has been our home for 6 weeks now. Hopefully we will be back in Fairland Hall before too long.
Elva received a photo of a baby kangaroo that has been rescued after the fires. It is sitting in a pouch that was made from some of Cheryl's fabric. The carers have named it "Pip" (after Cheryl's daughter) and another has been called Cheryl.
Cheryl would be thrilled. I can see her smiling and chuckling about it!
The joey is so cute.
Quilts for those who have lost everything in the fires:
Robyn S. has a holiday home on the South Coast near lake Conjola. This was devastated by the recent fires. Many residents have been left with nothing.
Robyn has asked us to contribute any quilts that we have to help. As she knows many in the area, she would like to take them and distribute them personally.
Robyn suggests a king single size which is 107 x 203 cm.
Teenage girls and boys particularly are hurting. Remember that the South Coast will start getting cooler now that Autumn is here so think 'warmth' too when deciding what to contribute.
Helena and her Triathlon:
Helena will be leaving for New Zealand on Wednesday to enter into her first triathlon to be held on March 7.
We all wish her the very best and lots of luck and love from us all. What a tremendous effort!
Show and Tell:
Ros made this very colourful quilt using the 'quilt as you go' method. First photo is the front. The second is the back of the quilt.
The quilt is for community and will go to a very lucky and deserving person.
Thank you Ros.
Below is a sample of the Contemporary Raffle quilt for our show in August. Iris designed it. We all contributed blocks and Grace will quilt it. I love it.
Below we have a very pretty baby quilt from Beryl R. ready to go to Westmead.
Below are 4 baby quilts from Carolyn. Carolyn has such a knack for colour. All for Westmead too .
Until next week .....
