MY GROUP OCTOBER 2017

Although we seemed to be thin on the ground, the ladies did not disappoint me in the fact they worked really hard all day and produced some amazing place mats of their own design, I had shown them a very simple idea and then they went to tow on it. Well done all of you. So the first lot of pictures are the ladies busy at work and the Showtime pictures are just brilliant. Thank you for coming once again and supporting my little group, without you there would not be one.

The following pictures are of the two FMQ girls having a go, they both did brilliantly, keep on practising though girls, it will get better and easier the more you do…

Pat B brought along lots of her fabrics she no longer wanted for sale and did a good trade with the ladies, I too bought lots of things from her, and thank you Pat for the donation to my Hospital Quilts, appreciate it, these last few items were left, so I did a ‘market trader’ style shout and lots more of it got sold and I believe Pat went home with just two items left, the Tree of Life hanging and I think a Christmas Owl cushion panel.

SHOWTIME —

Anne B’s version of Bridget’s quilt, and some wonderful colourful trees..

SEPTEMBER MEETING

Oops, a bit late but lots of lovely pictures to see so I hope you will forgive me.

It was a great day, lots of ladies turned up for which we thank you, if you keep coming we can keep on going.  I was wearing several hats on this day as I was demonstrating two blocks for the ladies to make and doing some FMQ with a small group up the corner. I love being busy and it worked OK you will be pleased to know.

We also had  http://passion4quilting.com/   at this meeting so lots of lovely new fabrics were purchased….oh yes they were.

Right on with the pictures, I will let them speak for themselves…

As you can see tea plays a very important part of the day for the ladies….

SHOWTIME in the afternoon brought some lovely work to the fore…

Brilliant work by all the ladies, I hope we shall have yet more to show you next month folks.

LAST WEEK IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY

I had a lovely day and lots of goodies, I thought you just might like to see them.

I am very lucky in that my family and friends know exactly what I like and I am also easily pleased, so a big thank you to all of you, Annette and Clint, Rebecca, Suzanne and Richard, Hubby, Fiona and Isabella, Jean and Ange plus all the peeps who wished me the best on Facebook.

Before my birthday, the week before in fact, my friend Cathy came to visit me, she is from New Zealand, unfortunately I was ill when she came on the Friday, but Annette to the rescue and she looked after her for me, they apparently got on like a house on fire, which is lovely. Cathy came back on the Saturday to see me and I was feeling better, of all the times to get ill, I was so cross with myself. It had been 4 years since we last saw each other, a long time. Hopefully it wont be that till the next time Cathy xxxxxxx. I sent Cathy home with a Quilt she liked and as when she arrived home it was their Winter I hope she puts it t good use, this is the Quilt.

I have been busy making more Quilts for Ange and can say how much I am enjoying making them, they are keeping me busy and my fingers working and they are all going to a good cause. Here are the ones I sent recently to Ange…

I decided to try to sell a few of my Quilts, here they are, they are priced at £50 each plus Pnp,  let me know if you are interested…

So I think that just about brings me up to date for a change, do let me know what you think, if you have any comments to make I am always grateful for them as they make me feel people are actually reading my Blog.  Well I am off to spend some of my birthday gifts now…
