Wednesday 4th May 2011

It was a busy day at Carrum Downs last week at our monthly get together. Not only were we holding our Biggest Morning Tea to raise funds for cancer research, but we were also sewing kits for the Breast Cancer Comfort Cushion organisation.



Show and tell was fabulous – as always:


Here is Hermione – she brought herself as show and tell and a wonderful project she is! She was also knitting something in rather riotous colours – not sure what it was, but it looked pretty bedazzling!



A beautiful version of Esther Aliu’s Red Delicious BOM from Marilyn. I only hope I can do it justice half as well as Marilyn has.



Laurel has made this gorgeous cover for a block folder to hold her “Farmer’s Wife” blocks. Personally I think there is no such thing as a farmer’s wife – there are amle farmers and female farmers – as a gal of the land I don’t know of any farmer’s wife who wasn’t a farmer in her own right – however, I do love the quilt and know that Laurel will make a wonderful version of it!




Ginny amazed us with her work from an AQC class with Beth and Trevor Reid. She has called this marvellous example – and here I am trying to read my scribble - In another world the flower will be cheese…. oops no I think it should be  coral.


This is Sally’s 2nd last Dear Jane block – congratulations for seeing it through. We can’t wait for the finished quilt now.



Kate has knitted one leg of this cute doll – the colours are fabulous!



Not sure what Maggy had to show us, but it was “This big”! Good on you Maggy!

And that’s it for another month – your roving reporter,
