Sewing Day June 12 2013 Information

 A pleasant day in the Hall, good company, an excellent catch up of all things quilty. Even the vibrations from the rollapak machine doing the road repairs outside were not quite enough to destroy our day.
 Lyn is showing her recently completed wall hanging  She also had us all intrigued by her bookbinding efforts after a workshop in Bundaberg. She even has found the time to design 2 more quilts and has made a start on one after purchasing fabric.
 Sandra was impressed with Fay's curvy quilts from our last day, so decided to visit Fay for a lesson and she is nearly finished this beauty. Amazing what you can achieve with some inspiration and assistance from a friend.

Next patchwork day is July 10th, after the school holidays. Also plan ahead for Christmas. House Rules are
bring along 4 gifts from the letters XMAS to swap. One must be food to share for the day. No more than $5 each in value. You must contribute to receive.  Some suggestions have been M for material,M and M's,  A for applique, apple pie, S for sewing thread, X for Xray film for templates. So start thinking outside the box.
Patty also announced the theme for the Mt Perry Art Exhibition in September is eMotion, lots of ways to interpret this. Check for further details, as she is setting the size rules this week for the brochures.
I also brought along my Mt Perry Quilters Blog Book I had printed. Amazing how many items we have finished. These books can be made to order through the Blog2print website.

A quick snapshot of my recent handiwork. Our house is like a patchwork quilt, bits restored here and there. I am hoping to complete some more of this work soon, then just maybe , we may be able to have a "retreat" sewing on the  restored veranda sometime before Christmas. Does anyone feel like learning how to remove paint? We might be able to sew sooner if you care to climb the ladders with me. You all said you are enjoying House Rules on the television. By the way those windows are earmarked for replacement.
Don't forget the competitive Bundaberg Quilt Show in August, looks like it could be a bit busy for the rest of the year. Catch you in July, Ruth.
