Dianne G is continuing with her Cross stitch of the month - free on the internet (details om a previous blog). Another gorgeous row completed! Sally has caught the bug too and is doing hers in blue - from her photo it looks fabulous, but we won't see it until it is finished.
Sally's stupendous seagulls are progressing, and don't they look wonderful?
Jeanette has resurrected a 1990's Deidre Macalroy Japanese reverse applique pattern. The pattern looks fabulous - as does Jeanette's early work on it.
Kathy, I will have something different for you to do next month!
Those who offered to bring morning tea next month - please remember to bring something delicious xxx.
So, I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 5th July,

We did manage to have some show and tell however:
Dianne has finished her Gail Pan stitchery and followed the pattern to make it into this very handy bag. Gorgeous work.
Just a note that Waverley Patchworkers are having a quilt in on Sunday 17th June at Mulgrave Community Centre - 355 Wellington Road. Doors open at 10 and the cost is $8. Morning and afternoon tea provided BYO lunch and sewing. Lots of fun, traders etc. More details from Rhondda 9560 4087 or 411 863 307
Hope to see you all at Carrum Downs this Wednesday 7th June from 10am.
Judith brought along a lovely range of products and very kindly donated a lovely set of charm squares to our cuppa for cancer in May.
I will get straight to show and tell - as I need to do our May blog too! It is not that I couldn't be bloggered, it is just that it has been such a busy time. Our Mildura retreat, giving classes at Phillip Island - where a Cape Barron Goose tried to mate with my Janome and I broke my big toe in the process of saving its honour - the Janome's, not the Cape Baron Goose's! And best of all, a beautiful, healthy, new great niece Maggie Jean. So I will get down to blog business.
Jo made this "interesting" place mat for her her daughter in law, who is into skulls, and what better skulls to use on a place mat than these gorgeous "Day of the dead" ones from Mexico. It really is beautiful.
interesting. In our May blog, you will see what she has made it into???
Yes, this does belong to me (Helen). It is my favourite Mug Rug. I did not make it, but have had ti so long that I can't remember where is came from. If any of you made it, I am udderly mooved. Good to take on a freisan day for my hot chocolate!
I will now attempt to complete our May blog - our Cuppa for Cancer - which was a fabulous day.

However Madam Cyn has completed this fabulous quilt for the same Grandson. Just what every three year old needs.
This fabulous book is being made by Deidre and her mother for her nephew in Texas.The animals are attached with velcro, and as you can see - the barn doors open up. What a beautiful gift for a little boy. So much work (and love) has gone into this book, with still more to do. I am sure he will treasure it forever.
in Pakenham. Taught by the owner Sue - a very talented woman, it gave owners of the new Bernina 7 million (or something like that!) a chance to try all their stitches. Each block is appliqued using a different stitch, and the result is just stunning. Bar, of course, has done her usual spectacular job - putting her own stamp on it.
We wish Ramona well on her travels - we will miss you my dear Marona xxx
Our next get together will be on Wednesday 5th of April - from 10 - 2. BYO lunch and mug. Mrning tea provided.
And just a reminder that our May meeting will be our "Cuppa for Cancer" fundraiser - so start collecting items (wrapped) worth approx. $10 for our lucky dip, as well as anything you have for te trading table - all funds will go to Cancer research. Also for May, we will bring a small plate of something tasty to share for lunch.
See you on the 5th of April,
your roving reported,
Devon Meadows, Vic
