First some very important information. At our next get together on Wednesday 7th of February, a nice lady will be coming to photograph our quilts etc. - so bring along as many as you can. She is interested in every day quilts and is building up a collection of ordinary quilters quilts in digital form. So, perfection is not required - this will bcome an historic record of the quilts we all make and use. In other wors, everyday quilts.
Also back is another lovely lady who taught a shashiko class a few months ago and who came back for our Christmas extraaganza, will be teaching those who missed out on her first class. $20 for the complete kit.
Now that is over, some personal trivia to explain the absense of our blog and myself over almost the last half of 2017.
Yes, that's right, I was back, fit and well after missing every get together since -- er July ... I think. I have had big adventures, in the following order:
(including a remarkable fall down the back stairs of the Salamanca Place Fairy shop, where I took out several fairy displays as well as metres of beads)
Where I played Berlin bingo (like wanker bingo, only different), saw lots of beautiful places, apart from Bruges (where I managed to have an asthma attack, and spent the entire 4 days in hospital on oxygen, steroids and the worst hospital food I have ever seen)
Where I managed a few spectacular falls, including a very impressive dive into one of our rosemary bushes.
Anyway I was in full flight for our best ever fabulous Christmas party. Everyone brought the nicest food and our food and Christmas decorations gift swaps as well as some great show and tell which you will see - I did lose my notes, so it will be a guessing game for some of the work shown. Apologies ahead of the inevitable mistakes.
So don't forget to bring along your quilts on Wednesday 7th as well as $20 if you want to do the Shako class. Details of where we meet is at the top of the blog'
