January 20 2014

It's time to begin for 2014 or should we wait until the heat of summer is passed? We met again in the Hall for a day of sewing on Monday 20th January. It was also a day of sweating, who makes quilts in the middle of an Australian summer? Small projects seem to be better suited to our current hot, dry climate.
 Here is Di's small lunch bag she made over the New Year Break.                                                                                                                           
Lunch Bag

Not a Lunch Bag, but an Iron and Ironing Mat. Now on everyone else's agenda.
Margaret's Table Center in progress

Margaret's Christmas Sewing, gifts for the family in New Zealand.

Di's half chenille mat for her grandson. Only 3 layers of fabric in the chenille as she did not want it too thick.
Ruth finished the 2nd grandbaby quilt just 27hrs before she arrived into the world.
Here is the first one being used back in July 2013.Still on  the subject of grandchildren,

On my way home from patchwork I went via Mundubbera and visited the new grandbaby's Great Grandparents to be greeted with these creative gates.

There is a 3rd great grandbaby arriving in June, I wonder what colour this one will be?

Back to our sewing days, next month's date has not been finalised as we are still confirming it with our working girls.We will post the information here or email you all. Ruth
