Wednesday 4th September 2012

It was a fun day at Carrum Downs – we discussed a few special things for our Christmas meeting, which will be announced at our October meeting on Wednesday 2nd of October.
Also, I have a new craft toy that I will be demonstrating at our October meeting – once I work out how to use it!

For show and tell we had:

IMG_0259 Dianne showed us one of the many QAYG quilts made at St. John’s Quilters Quiltathon . The quilts are to be sold to raise fund to restore the old church hall which is heritage listed and will be restored to its former glory. It has been the sight of many workshops and even a quilt show, so we are all keen to see it at its best. Many of the quilts have already been sold!

IMG_0260 Laurel, brought along yet another quilt she has made for charity. This one is to go to the palliative care unit at Casey Hospital.

IMG_0261 Laurel also made this cute dinosaur quilt for her little grandson.

Simone has also done some beautiful felting, and made a “caravan” bag – to show her love for the great outdoors!

IMG_0267  IMG_0268  Here are a couple of things I did for the Bendigo retreat – the patterns for which were in the goody bags.

And here is the lovely gift the person I was secret Santa to in Bendigo, made for me. A gorgeous table runner, from none other than Ramona.  And (sunglasses warning) my new shoes – ever so comfy, and the colours go with everything! I got them on a girls weekend in Queenscliff – together with a black pair for night wear!

Fran’s beautiful “Under the sea” stitcheries – almost finished – love the detail!

Cynthia’s awesome teddy quilt for her soon to be grandchild (who texts her daily).

Photos do not do justice to the beautiful shawl Cynthia has crocheted for the same lucky grandchild. It is the same pattern shed has used for all her children as well and we have persuaded her to show us how to make it next year.

Someone is working on this pretty scarf (?), and Bar made this be basket quilt with fabrics bought at the Kiama retreat.
Ramona's note: Ginny's scarf :-)

More hexagons from Bar! And Dianne R is assembling her colourwash Y2K – the results will be worth the wait – I am sure.

Once again, the photos don’t do justice to Maggy’s winter wonderland quilt – a wonderful achievement . So pretty.
