A Quiet Day

 Hi Everyone,

 18 members arrived this week. Due to the closure of the Harbour Bridge some were unable to come. It took me a lot longer than usual and Helena was in traffic for 2 hours. Beryl B set off to catch the bus which took ages to come. After trying another couple of buses she gave up and eventually returned home around midday.

Gill had some news from Doreen. She said Doreen misses us and often thinks of us and sends her love.

Felicity has been in hospital again with a broken leg but is home now.

Heather gave Grace some beautiful woolen fabrics for our waggas. Grace and Gill were thrilled. Thank you Heather.

I missed the August birthdays but will include them this month with the September acknowledgments. I am somewhat out of kilter, what with no upcoming quilt shows to tell of, no real news from anywhere. It will be interesting to see if the Darling Harbour show does go ahead at the end of October. I am doubtful.

Sandy has 7 quilts ready to be donated to the Hornsby Womens Shelter next week. It will be interesting to hear how the shelter has been coping.

Blue Jacobs Ladder blocks:

Please bring or send any blocks you have. Jenny and Iris arranged the ones we had on the design wall. Photo below. You have to agree it looks pretty good. It was very nice to see Jenny. She has been unable to come for many weeks.

Show and Tell:

Gill put squares of corduroy together for a lap quilt for Robyn. Beryl R was feeling cold and wrapped it over her shoulders to warm up. She looked very cosy.

A quilt top donated by Rhonda T. The backing and binding were provided. Judy put it together and quilted it. This is for Community.

Sue D. with three cot quilts for Robyn.

The Hunters Hill Public School approached us for a wall hanging to celebrate their 150 year anniversary this year. Iris conceived the idea and with help from Grace, this lovely wall hanging is finished. Iris and I will present it to the Principal next week ready for their celebrations.
Lovely work Iris and many thanks. The jacaranda tree holds special significance for the school.

Until next week .....
