Good to be back

Hullo Everyone,

 I must apologise about the Blog last week. I forgot to press the 'Publish' button. Hopefully I won't do that again! Alison kindly sent it out on Thursday once I discovered that no-one had received it.

How about our Helena! As you know, Helena participated in her first Triathlon which was held in New Zealand last weekend. Helena did brilliantly, coming 15th out of 40 in her group. She looked marvelous on Thursday and not a bit tired. What a feat! Congratulations Helena!

We held our AGM this week. Kerry has emailed the Minutes out to every member.

June has had shoulder surgery and is now in rehab. We hope she will be able to call in soon to see us. We have very much missed having her at our meetings.

I have had a query about our show this year. As you are all aware we are living in very uncertain times. We are working towards having the show at this stage. I will keep you updated as the news changes.

The latest NRMA Open Road magazine has a centrefold of baby kangaroos in pouches made from donated fabric. It is a cute photo and wonderful that so many sewers joined to make them. Ellen's daughter was very much involved with the organising and many quilters donated fabric.

Joy and Elva held a mini quilt show at Montefiore last Tuesday. It was a great hit with the residents and a lot of fun. They are planning on doing it again.
Elva is doing her best to organise a bus to bring some residents to our show.
I will add the photos in the next blog.

Show and Tell:

The quilts below are being donated to the Fire Victims in the Lake Conjola area:
