It is catch up time after the wonderful Bendigo Retreat, so I am going back in time to the beginning of July, trying to read my notes.
This time of year a lot of us travel to warmer climes, but a lot of the usual suspects did attend to make it a fun and enjoyable day.
Cynthia has crocheted a baby quilt for her 42 year old daughter who is expecting her first baby. Lovely work and congratulations to Cynthia and her daughter in particular.
Frances saw a video in Lincraft of how to knit in this scarf, and immediately thought that she could do it herself. She was not wrong – and has done a beautiful job on this bright cheery scarf.
Ginny (and Fran as well) were both knitting retreat beanies/ berets. Good work!
And here is the beautiful raffle quilt from Cottontails – to be drawn at their quilt show (always wonderful) to aid their local CFA. The show will be held in the Community Centre in Belgrave, or is it Tecoma? on the 24th and 25th of August. Ramona has all the details: 0432 399 215 It is always a wonderful show and well worth a visit. It is not too late to buy tickets – once more, see Ramona or Sandra
Also there will be a quiltathon on Saturday 3rd August for the St. Johns Quilters, Cranbourne to raise money to restore their heritage listed hall. You just bring sewing machine and sewing stuff and the fabric is provided. The cost for the day is $5 and you can ask for friends to sponsor you for more. The aim is to finish quilts to sell. There will also be traders and lucky door prizes. Di Mitchell can provide more details: 0409435769
That’s it for now,
