We had 25 keen quilters attending this Thursday. It was great to welcome back Christie, Robyn J. and Jonquil, who we had not seen for awhile..
Gill gladdened us with the good news that Doreen is travelling along well and is looking forward to leaving care to return home.
Our AGM is coming up on February 18th and we will try to run a concurrent Zoom session for those not ‘rostered on’ that day.
We had a lovely thank you note from a grateful grandmother whose grandson received one of our quilts via Robyn’s granddaughter, Ash..
Heather’s grandson arrived happy and healthy, and will enjoy his Christmas stocking next year.
Sandy was able to add two more Community quilts to our donation pile. One, a pretty pastel HST quilt, was made by Ros’s cousin, who wished it to go to a women’s refuge.Beryl donated a wonderfully colourful quilt.
Grace had made 3 lovely baby quilts for The Grace Centre. Look at those beautiful, stitched bees and butterflies!
Alison returned to quilting after her brief,but successful, foray into puppet costumery and showed us two beautiful baby quilts-one for her friend’s granddaughter, using Brigitte Giblin’s snowflake design papers, and one for another friend’s baby granddaughter. She also had made a gorgeous outfit for her granddaughter from a Kaffe Fassett fabric featuring pomegranates. A sundress and bloomers...fabulous.
Looking forward to seeing more of our wonderful needlework next week.
