Wednesday 6th August

It was a beautiful sunny, springlike day on Wednesday -That's Carrum for you -beautiful one day - perfect the next! We did have a great day, and surprisingly, for a change, most of us got lots of sewing done as well. Of course, we still managed to chat, sew, eat, drink, buy from the trading table - that's multi tasking for you!

Here are a few shots of the gals hard at work, doing said drinking, eating, sewing & chatting!


Sandra was finishing off her hand quilting on this lovely, hand pieced quilt that she put together some time ago. It will look spectacular when finished - it is being finished, by the way for the "Cottontales" 10th Anniversary quilt show in Belgrave at the end of August - should be a great exhibition.

Sue's own version of a Baltimore quilt - looking even more wonderful with Sue's magnificent machine quilting. This woman is a wonder!

A close up of Sue's machine quilting!

Bar with a gorgeous bag in a paisley print.

And getting ready for Christmas! Her lovely, but easy to make Christmas Bunting inspired us all!

Sally with her splendiferous pieced swan quilt, from the book "Quilts from Nature" purchsed from our very own trading table some time ago! The fabrics Sally used are just exquisite.

A close up of Sally's machine quilting - her usual splendid standard.

Bronwyn received this great Bali bag from a friendship group she belongs to for a "Special 0" birthday. The makers of the bag all embroidered their names around the top of the bag.

Bronwyn with yet another gift from yet another friendship group ( how do we join these groups Bronwyn??). Beautiful pieced urns in lovely oriental fabrics.

The innovative label from the above quilt - what a great idea!

Sue with a bag made by her sister from "cheater" fabric. Most effective!

Helen Y ( who I might add, was in a rather frivolous mood - so unusual for you Helen!!) with a (slightly modified) Cinderberry Sttiches bag, using gorgeous "city girl" fabric.

Pam with her Dear Jane - so far - it does seem to be growing at an alarming rate. What are you feeding it Pam??

A beautiful hexagon bag made by my angel ( from near Mittagong???). The comments were that you must really love me angel!!
Well, that was about it, so until the first Wednesday of September, that is all from your roving reporter!
