Wednesday 7th June 2017

It was a most enjoyable day at Carrum Downs. We were missing some of our regulars, but we will catch up in July I am sure. There were a few good classes going on the same day!

This magnificent quilt is the ultimate Aussie Quilt, sorrounded by Aussie slang sayings and even some on the back in the shape of the Southern Cross. It was donated to Quilts of Valour by a lovely Qld. group - details are on the Scquilters FB page. Ridgey Didge I say! It was donated that very day to a veteran in Pakenham.

 Dianne G is continuing with her Cross stitch of the month - free on the internet (details om a previous blog). Another gorgeous row completed! Sally has caught the bug too and is doing hers in blue - from her photo it looks fabulous, but we won't see it until it is finished.

More hexies from Dianne G as well - some beautiful fussy cutting, and fabrics in there.

Marvellous Shashiko work from Marilyn. She learned this in a class with Di Rickard at the Mildura retreat.

This is just one of the lovely evening bags Deidre has made from a Leesa Chandler kit. She was putting the finishing touch on a couple of the gorgeous bags - using Leesa's great fabric.

Sally's stupendous seagulls are progressing, and don't they look wonderful?

Jeanette has resurrected a 1990's Deidre Macalroy Japanese reverse applique pattern. The pattern looks fabulous - as does Jeanette's early work on it.
Marilyn is working on an embroidery featured in Inspirations magazine. So striking and lovely. I think we all want this magazine!

This is the block Dianne G made in her Foundation Piecing class with me. Doesn't it look fabulous? We want to see the finished article next month - if you aren't still in Bali!
Kathy, I will have something different for you to do next month!

Those who offered to bring morning tea next month - please remember to bring something delicious xxx.

So, I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday 5th July,
Your roving reporter,
Helen Evans
