Tuesday 18th November

Today we just enjoyed a day of stitching and friendship. No events or other distractions!

Quite a few ladies are exploring the joys of English paper piecing with clam shells, diamonds, hexagons and apple cores all been incorporated into our patchwork. We are even adding hexagons as a feature on our raffle quilt with members tacking fabric to hexagon papers ready for two adjacent border corners.

The librarians have culled a number of magazines that can be now taken home for some retro patchwork. We have subscriptions to Patchwork and Quilting, Quilter’s Companion and Down Under Textiles. These are all Australian publications which inspire us with patterns and advertisements.

Wilga and Fay were working on some very old UFO projects which is lovely to see and a good lesson for us all to look out those old works and complete them. Fay enjoyed a birthday cake for her 82 birthday or as she says 28!!!
