Thursday 19th June

Hi again everyone.
Another quilting day with smallish turn up. Still a few travellers and people recovering. We welcomed Iris back, and had a message of greeting from grace who is 'still on to road'. Great to see Cheryl back on deck as well. 

A very successful show meeting before getting down to quilting work. Everything is coming together nicely, thanks to the massive efforts of Jenny and all her enthusiastic committee. Only two cards still outstanding, so a full pack will be the end result! Don't forget to bring along any plain bags (without logos or anything else printed on them) for use with stage sales. Also bring in anything you're planning to sell so Alison can photograph it, that includes waggas. Stage sale sheets will be ready soon for you to fill out if needed. Duty rosters are already out and being filled in enthusiastically by all yesterday! Thanks for that. Many hands etc etc.....

Late message yesterday afternoon from HH council. I can pick up our swipe cards on Monday. So those on kitchen duty next week, I would still bring along your keys just in case! However. I will pop in to check if the system is in place before Thursday, and if it is, I'll meet you at the hall at 9.45am with the swipe cards. 

Now for the 'Show and Tell'

An enormous beauty from Jenny S, a mystery quilt project I believe. Then a smaller one from the left overs!

A lovely quilt by Penny

This cute baby quilt was made by June P and quilted by Helen K

A 'foreign order' project for Elva's grandchild- an Elsa dress for a Frozen Party!! Many more sparkles still to be stitched!

Cheers, and see you next Thursday. Beautiful sunny weekend coming up. Enjoy yourselves!

Thursday 12th June

Hi all. Elva here.
We had quite a small group today. Many travellers off in the wilds, leaving us to do all the work! We were a hardy group however, and the show & tell will prove that. We welcomed Suzie back looking well again. I spoke about the adventures with HH Council and the new swipe card entry to the hall. Supposed to be in place by tomorrow, but no action so far. Many a slip I suspect! Stay tuned for progress, if you can call this progress!
We are all still trying to figure out the logistics of getting to the Guild Show at Glebe Island this year. This will be a new adventure for all, but I'm sure the show will make it all worthwhile.
Jenny reports that all arrangements for our own show in early August are humming along nicely.  A reminder that there's a meeting of the show committee next Thursday, same time, same place.

Now for some show and tell:

Above also a couple of nice bags by Susan H, and a nice blue number by Jenny S.

Above is a Liberty print jelly roll by Lindy - very much admired, and may well be copied!
Below is a detail from Audrey's whole fabric quilt which she was doing at the retreat. Coming along nicely. 

Last but not least a very cute baby quilt by Robyn S for the usual charity.
Cheers all. See you next week. Enjoy the weekend and RUG UP! Winter's finally here!

Looks great.

29th May (cont)

Ah yes, well the photos jumped around all over the place, seemingly at their own pleasure!
Jessica, your effort gained pride of place through its own bidding! I'll gradually experiment and get these photos to behave themselves and do my bidding!

Happy quilting everyone, and have a great weekend.

Hi everyone. Elva here.
Started with a smallish group this morning, and gradually became a full house! Good to see. We had a Show meeting before getting down to work. All preparations coming along well. Only four cards still outstanding. Duty rosters will be out soon, so sign up for jobs! 

Don't forget next week is Community Day. Plenty of work to catch up on and help out with. 

Special thanks to those who provided morning tea. Looked wonderful! Thanks also to those who have offered to do next week at short notice. Best wishes to all members who are feeling poorly at the moment. Our thoughts are with you. Hope to see you back soon.

Some beauties at show and tell this week. I will attempt to display them below. Here goes!

Well done Elva! You managed.
These are the photo's belonging to the Show an Tell Elva writes about.

Susan H. made this lovely Wagga as a sample for the wagga kits and wagga patterns we will be selling at our Quilt Show!

Jenny has put all her blocks, made at the retreat, together!
And has started to fill some holes.

Ros has put her quilt top together.

So has Narelle

Susan H. started with strips she was given by Moina. She also had some Kaffe Fassett jelly roll strips. She worked hard at the retreat. Besides this top she has been wiring on some beautiful bags, we will be selling at the Quilt Show if not sold out prior.

Then there was this production line of cod quilts going on.
