April meeting

I always seem to start off saying "Another busy day", but I can't help it because it's true!  Lots of ladies, buzzing about; creating, sorting, packing, and sharing skills.  It's so uplifting to be part of a group that's working together and filling a need in the community.  And we're fulfilling a need in ourselves at the same time, and that's important too.
So what happened.
Ann's friend, Lorraine, who lives far away in South Australia sent some baby knits by mail.
Lorraine has been knitting for us forever, and just in the last year has sent 107 baby jumpers and cardigans.  Talk about flying fingers!  Thanks, Lorraine.
Jan K has been on holidays, fishing I believe, but she found time to embroider these sweet little motifs, and put them into memory blankets when she got home.
So pretty!
Claire found some white lace in our supplies and was inspired to make this little lovely.
And Nicky demonstrated how to make a shaggy quilt like these.
So effective, and they're so warm and cuddly!  Thanks for sharing, Nicky.
Leone always brings in such a haul of product that we think she must sew 23 hours a day!
Amongst it this time were these Xray bags.  The radiology and oncology departments love these for their patients so they don't have to juggle cumbersome Xrays.
Of course, in amongst all this loveliness our main focus is quilts; and below is a selection from this month.  I apologise that I do not always remember who made what.
This strippy might look a bit plain, but the other side is pink plush that a little girl is going to fall in love with!
I Spy squares and corduroy, what a great combination.
And tartan for a big boy.
Tweet tweet - too sweet.
A scrappy delight, with a very striking border.
And lastly, woven pink hearts.  Yes, that is not check fabric in the hearts, its woven strips!
Our next meeting will be on May 27th, and we'll be working on preparations for our Open day on August 31st (which is going to sneak up on us real fast!
