September Meeting

It was all hands on deck on Monday morning.
A lot of new folk joined us, after our exceptionally spectacular Open Day (no bias here!); and all of the quilts and other goodies that had been held over for showing at the event had to be sorted for distribution, but we also had some very special visitors.
Claire has been liaising with the Endeavour Foundation, after reading in the local paper that two houses have been built in Pelican Waters for eight Endeavour Foundation clients and two staff members.  The residents will move in by mid-October and Claire thought donating colourful bed quilts would be another great way for Sunshine Linus to contribute to our community. Go, Claire!
So the soon-to-be new residents came to visit to collect their quilts and have morning tea with us.

It's starting to get busy in here!

Another resident happy with her gift
Adele, the lucky winner of our raffle quilt, also came today.  Adele loves her new quilt (and her cat has also given his seal of approval!)

After all the excitement it was back to work.
Jill and Judy are sorting the quilts for distribution. There is a lot more to go yet, girls!
As always we had plenty of show and tell
Nikki made this gorgeous scrappy purple lovely

Claire used furnishing fabrics for this one
Maggie made this sweet little girls number
And Bev did this scrappy log cabin
The distribution list for this month is long.  You can see it here.
See you all again on October 28th....
