Kerry organised a coffee morning to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research. Guests were treated to cups of coffee with sponge cake and other goodies on the menu.
Patty kindly presented us with special fabric to make bags for sale at this function.
Raffles were held as well, with all funds raised going directly to Breast Cancer research.
The bag sale is still continuing with them on display at the Mt. Perry Post Office.
Will post photoes later if the camera made it to the morning.
Check back to our blog archive of October 2006 for our bra efforts.
We are already planning the fund raising item for 2008. Looks like it might be a quilt.
It has been interesting that only some people noticed that the fabric similarity existed.

Here we are posing for the cameras in the Art Gallery. Don't we look a happy bunch. Fay and Patty were absent that day so there are actually 9 of us. Annette ( the tutor) was present for the opening. She was glad to see all the quilts actually finished. We still have more to show you yet.

Faye felt she had a bunch of disconnected hexagons that were impossible to put together hence the name for this quilt. With the addition of her boxes and changing it to a wall quilt size , the result is very enjoyable to view.
She certainly is a prolific quilter as she squeezed in a trip to Canada during its construction and still managed to meet the deadline.
Her next projects have included a horse quilt for a beloved grandson, and there was another one already in the workbox last patchwork day.
A medical emergency involving a snake prevented her from attending the official opening so she missed the good comments about her work.
P.S. The emergency all ended well if you are wondering.

It was interesting to note one of us decided to use the same fabric as the tutor. After much deliberating about where to put the boxes, a helper decided to arrange them.
This quilt is aptly titled "Lost in Space" those boxes certainly do look like they are.
The tutor's quilt is of the same fabric with different features.
Naturally they are much better to view hanging in the gallery so make sure you visit before they move on.
