Wednesday 2nd September 2015

Our first meeting for Spring 2015 was a wonderful get together with a great deal of chat, laughter, enjoying our morning tea and some occasional stitching. Many of us, who had been to the Canberra retreat (well me!) actually did more than the one stitch achieved at the retreat. Many of you sowed a great deal of interest in our 2016 Retreat, I will add details about it at the end of this, what is laughingly called a report of our day – some of it may be accurate! Don’t forget to click on the photos to enlarge them and get a proper look at some fabulous show and tell.

These lovely appliqued blocks are the work of Bar, who has made them in an on going machine applique class at The Sewing Connection at Pakenham. The class introduced Bar to many different methods and different stitches that can be used in machine applique. Such beautiful fabrics too.

  Here is a beautiful stitchery from Melody. They are to be surrounded by Dresden plates. It is a BOM from Rosalie Quinlan. Gorgeous isn't it?

Bev has caught the hexagon bug! She was asked to take over the work of someone who has gone to that great Quilting Bee in the sky, and had never done them before – is anyone surprised that she is now addicted?

Marita has been perfecting her foundation piecing skills and I think that those that live in the Hundred acre wood and beyond would agree that she has succeeded admirably with Tigger, Pooh Bear (the photo is right way up, but you know Pooh – jumping around at the last minute!) and Christopher Robin himself.  The patterns come for free on a site called Fandom.

Jan  - just back from Malta and Italy and looking fabulous (that’s Simone in the background- she also looks fabulous), was after advice for her Christmas Tree Wall hanging. I think she went home with plenty of ideas. Don't you love what she has done so far?
