This is our last post for 2016. I’m sorry to have missed last week but I was unwell but am now on the mend. Today we had a lovely friendly time as we ran down the clock on our stitching for the year. Wilga and Elizabeth had show and tell.
A birthday cake was cut for the December girls of whom only Marlene and Elizabeth were present.
We had another Row By Row session with Helen Granleese getting our last two rows, a diamond heart and a picket fence. Some hardy souls also took the finishing pack with hopes of completing their quilts over the break. Many thanks to Helen who has been very patient with us dealing with the fast finishers and the slow pokes and all in between!!!
The raffle quilt girls are applying fabric to the paper templates and soon members will have some hand work to do. This lovely quilt will be quite traditional and the colours are soft and yummy.
A small working party has met to decide on the criteria for the Wilga Bolton Award. This will become part of the exhibition each year and will go to a bed quilt that is “keeping the traditions alive”. I’m sure this award will become a great honour to win. Wilga is the founder of our group.
Our thoughts are with Joan Farlow whose youngest son Anthony was killed in a road accident.
So farewell from all our stitching friends who have featured in this blog over 2016 and we will meet again on January 17th 2017. Merry Christmas
