Keeping Up The Challenge

Narelle has been able to keep up the challenge she set herself of using what she acquired on the trip to the Bundaberg Quilters Exhibition.

The first ball of wool is now a snuggly scarf although with Spring just around the corner it may go into storage till next winter.

On the same day as the exhibition, she signed up for a Quilters Bag workshop and has been working away on the embroidery. Saturday she was able to set up the sewing machine and hey presto a finished bag.

The bag has two pockets on the front for holding quilt rulers and her large cutting mat will fit nicely inside the bag. She's also very happy with the pencil she purchased for tracing stitcheries.

Shopping Challenge Update

Hi Girls,
I'm quite sure you all had a good time shopping at the Bundaberg Quilters Exhibition. I'm sorry I'm not up to that challenge Narelle as I purchased nothing in the fabric line. You'll have to wait instead as I purchased a days workshop with Jocelyne Leath and that is on August 15th to see what I do with my spendings.

I can also report that the sewing machine lucky door prize is not going to Mt Perry or any out of town location. It was eerily won by Joan of Bundaberg Quilters ( who also won the same prize ) either in 1994 or 1996 ( we were not quite sure as to which year). She is a past president of BQ and has been a tireless worker for the club, nearly since it started and is still one of their beginners classes teachers.
There sure were a lot of tired looking ladies after their 5 days of efforts when I collected my quilts at the end.

Shopping Challenge

We had a lovely day yesterday admiring quilts, enjoying a chat over morning tea and/or lunch and checking out the yummy stalls at the Bundaberg Quilters Exhibition.

So girls ... who's up for a little challenge!

Above are the little goodies I brought home with me. The hexies were in a kit of fabric with templates and I made them up last night.

Below is my finished pincushion made from the kit I purchased yesterday.

Who will be next to share something finished using a purchase from yesterday?
