Wednesday 2nd April

Hello again everyone! Sorry for the delay - but I have been pretty bloggered with the school holidays and other nefarious activities, so have only just got our blog done. Plus being a "bear of little brain" I needed retraining for my second attempt at bloggery. I am learning more, so just be patient & expect a little improvement (hopefully) in layout etc each month. The comments, alas, will stay the same!!!!
This month I took more photos of our group at work ( Marilyn took the show & tell piccies - thank you Marilyn). I asked everyone the stop talking & look busy & then proceeded to miss most of their heads! So next month there will be more full frontals of our lovely group.

Helen Yann, Lovely Louise & Bar looking through the goodies on the trading table.
A shot of some of us at work with Jo ( green T shirt) & Robyn in the foreground

Narelle, Louise (hidden) & "Pam perfect" working away.


Di, assisting Jan sewing the binding on Jan's quilt. Note the close up of the gorgeous border fabric.



Jan, at the other end of her quilt



Miriam working on her four patches. Such lovely fabrics.






Bar's hexagon quilt - Bar must still be looking at the trading table!




A gorgeous one of Kate with her clever bag. I think I have worked out how it is done!




Wendy & Jennifer acting busy



Marilyn working on her stitchery - you see what I mean about the photography!






Wynn shashikoing away





Helen Y mid stitch working on her applique




Clever Jennifer's hand made jewellery




Wendy & Sylvia admiring clever Jennifer's hand made jewellery



Helen E (moi) with autumn themed ( well, it has pumpkins & autumn leaves) quilt made 12 years ago




Moi again - Mermaid ( note lifesaver attached) & rose trellis cushion




Jo with one of Waverley Patchworkers "Gift Quilts" - very pretty




Jo once more - note snazzy shoes! With her autumn themed medallion quilt. See the clever arrangement of colour - from bright in the middle to more faded with each row.



Pam trying out a new bag pattern - with three bags for family & friends in wonderful fabrics



Robyn with a self designed bag to carry her library books around in so they don't get damaged. A great idea.




Robyn again with a lovely angel swag. I think there are not many Scquilters - particularly those in Angel swaps, who don't have this pattern.




Jan with her a lovely quilt for her grand daughter. The picture doesn't show the animals clearly - but they are really pretty. Plus Jan's DH did beading work on each animal - very clever.



Sylvia proudly showing us a former UFO of lovely Christmas charm squares.



Sylvia once more with her autumn themed half square triangels - simple but gorgeous.




More "faceless" photos! see if you can guess who this one is??



And last but far from least - Sally's dear Jane WIP in the most wonderful range of blues. It is going to be magnificent when it is finished Sally.
Well, that is it for another month - our next meeting will take place on Wednesday 7th of May & will include "The Biggest Morning Tea" in aid of Breast Cancer Research. I just had a thought!! Why don't we bring along any pink quilts we may have made &/or wear something pink on the day???
Best wishes to our regulars who couldn't make it for various reasons, in particular to Sheila, whose DH "The Scot" is currently undergoing chemotherapy. Best wishes from all of us Sheila.
And a big thank you to those who left messages on the blog - I didn't even realise you could!!

Sally's Dear Jane looks fabulous! I like all the chantelles, and you are doing well with the blog! GTG blogs are a great idea. Wonder if we could get one going in the Hunter?
