Patchwork Day - Before and After

With the cooler weather some of the ladies decided to sit outside in the warm sunshine while others battled the cool breeze (sometimes wind) blowing in through the large doors. After awhile the sun went and hid behind the clouds so it was time to move indoors, close the doors and find a warmer spot to stitch.

Sandra brought along two quilts to work on hand stitching the bindings as well as some crochet to work on inbetween.

This sweet pink heart quilt is all ready for a grand daughter to snuggle in. Sandra made some good progress on the crochet and started handstitching the binding on a lovley purple heart quilt.

Kerry gets to join us briefly before heading off to work through the middle of the day. She brought along a cute teddy stitchery to work on.

Back from work, a fresh coffee and stitch away. All these guys need now is the border.

After the manditory coffee was made, Narelle began on a blank canvas stitchery and was able to finish all but the letter "i". To view the finished stitchery and read the saying visit Narelle's blog. The deep heat came into action that night for an aching elbow.

Ruth had it all planned to sew on her amazing mariners' compass but alas her machine had different ideas and is now making a visit to the machine doctor.

Time for Ruth to mull over fabric selections and begin tracing and placing for the embroidery part of this quilt.

Margaret had to pop out for a bit so enjoyed the day browsing through magazines, gathering ideas and inspiration for new projects.

Kath and her gorgeous little grand daughter strolled in for a visit and to see what everyone was working on. Kath's been working at home on a lovely jewel coloured quilt for a grandson.

Next patchwork day will be the 15th of June. You will be excused for wearing nice warm slippers to keep the tootsies warm.

Quiet April?

Did somebody say April was a quiet month? Here on the blog perhaps but not for the busy band of quilters.

Fay, Margaret and Narelle travelled to Childers on the 14th to attend their Quilt show and had a lovely day out. Saturday the 16th was Mt Perry's Annual Show.

Our patchwork day was on the 2oth and everyone was busy sewing.

Add to the mix school holidays, Easter and Anzac Day and our calendar was full. Phew!

What does the month of May have in store for you? Make room on the calendar for Patchwork Day on the 18th.
