Our group today was smaller in number owing to school holidays and the up coming long weekend. Although we had fewer attending there was still plenty to do and to show. The hand quilting on our Traditional raffle quilt has been completed and Grace has kindly taken the quilt to choose a binding fabric.
Elva showed us a completed knitted outfit consisting of a beanie hat and jumper for the Fish & Chip babies. The outfits are sent to any crisis area in the world. New born babies are being called “Fish & Chip” babies because they are sent home from hospital wrapped in newspaper for warmth.
The other week when I was at the QuiltNSW Exhibition there was a small quilt that caught my eye and sense of humour. The title of the quilt was “What’s for dinner Mum?” It made my day. If only the family would be satisfied with a fabric meal on those days when you are on a roll with your stitching!
3rd - 5th November at St Joseph’s Kincumber. Payment for the Retreat must be made no later than 20th October.
Jane met with our contact at RizeUp this week to hand over some Teddy Bears which were knitted by Ros and Robyn Jo hand sewed their faces. RizeUp was thrilled to receive them and one will be placed in a new home tomorrow.
40 Baby quilts were selected and will be delivered to Olivia for Little Wonders RPA for World Prematurity Day in November.
