Narelle and Lindy arrived with bags of mandarins and avocadoes for us to share this week. We are very spoilt with goodies from members gardens. All delicious and very much appreciated.
A rainy Thursday saw numbers down this week. As it is the first meeting of the month many were working on their quilts for Community.
Grace's group put together a wagga as a tribute to Doreen. Earlier she had brought in squares of woollen material for us to put onto a bigger square using blanket stitch. Her group then put the three layers together and tied it. A busy group. The photo below is the result.
Meg's group are working on a new project which looked very pretty.
There was much discussion in Alison's group putting hexagons together.! Robyn Jms saved the day! I look forward to the finished product.
Workshop next week:
Grace has kindly offered to do a workshop to show us Kawandi stitching which uses a running stitch in a circular fashion and works from the outside in.
We will do a place mat size. So bring along thread and scissors.
A longer needle is preferable to go through the three layers. A long embroidery needle is ideal. Bring scraps of fabric, no smaller than 2" or 2 1/2" strips or larger size squares of fabric, wadding, and pearl thread.
We will kick off at 11 am. Should be fun.
Craft Show at Homebush.
You can purchase tickets to the show online. It will be in the Dome at the Showground - no stairs and on the level.
There will be parking or go by train or bus. Looking forward to it.
We almost have 20 going to our retreat in October. See Narelle if you would like to go.
Show and Tell:
I really slipped up this week: Forgot to photograph Lindy's baby quilt ( will include next week) and I took a photo of the back of Doreen's quilt to show the stitching in process. Then forgot to photograph the front. What a nit wit I am.
All will be rectified next week! I do apologise.
Until next week ....
