Lockdown Projects Completed

 Hi Everyone,

Val Nelson called in with her daughter again this week. We received rotary cutter blades, a large box of basting pins and clamps, and scissors from Val's stash. We were able to show her the baby quilt and the other quilt that had been made from her donated fabric.

Val was pleased to catch up with Robyn, Marie and June.

Grace has finished sewing the Street project from our lockdown blocks as well as the Star blocks. You will agree that the quilt really looks good. We will hang the Street quilt in the hall for us all to admire.

After quilting on Thursday, five of us walked over to check out one of the HH Council's initiatives - The Yarn Space. We had been booked from 2 pm but on arrival, meetings were being held and we weren't able to stay. We were however given a brief talk about the facility. It is a space that can be booked by the community for yoga, storytime, baby bounce sessions, and upcoming village talks and workshops. 

Council has an agreement with Lane Cove library for a click and collect system for books to borrow.

One handy addition for locals is items such as used printer cartridges, plastic, batteries,and various items for recycling can be dropped into the bins in the space. 

I don't think it is particularly suitable for our needs but it was interesting.

Show and Tell:

Ros has made 40 knitted rabbits. Here are three waiting for their noses and eyes to be sewn on.

 Our Lockdown Street quilt. Terrific! Thank you Grace.


The Lockdown Star quilt. This will be for Community. It always amazes me that our blocks, all worked on independently and with few instructions, always come together and look great. Thanks you Grace and Sandy for finishing this one.



Until next week ......
