Roll on summer...

is all I can say!!!! Have I told you all before that I dislike winter???? LOL
Never the less.... more finished (or near finished) work by some of the Thursday Craft ladies.
This quilt is made by Teena and is her first attempt!! A terrific effort.This is Una with another of her Heart Quilts - love the colours.One of the Margaret's (there are a few in the group - the rest are called Mary!! LOL - been calling one of the ladies Mary all year only to find her name is Jan!!!) has just about finished a lovely bear quilt stitchery.Quilty Gal (one of the Snobs and Slobs ) has made this lovely quilt top - using only what she had in her stash! Well done Claire, lovely quilt.

Well I am about to move from the computer desk to the sewing table to complete some tops, so see you all later.

How I hate the cold winter....

but at least we have had some reasonable rain!!! Tonight our cats decided that they would help out and with our hobbies - Rose thought SW needed some guidance on the computer while Tiger was busy supervising the sewing! They are so funny at times - usually Rose sits and waits for the SW to finish and promptly jumps into the warm seat :)
Last Thursday many of the Craft ladies finished their quilts off - so here are some more following from previous postings -
Norma and her green quilt - going as a gift to her sister who is in aged care. Jessie's lovely brown quilt - also going as a gift to a sister. And a pink one that I think she is keeping. Ella finished quilting her lovely quilt and it is now finished!There are still a few ladies who are working on their quilts so stay tuned for the rest!!!

As you might know from previous years - we (SW and I) belong to S.A.M.E and our annual show is coming up in August (more in future posts). The club has been gathering our bits and pieces and getting ready for the show :)) One of the things we do is have a raffle for several room boxes over the duration of the weekend. Here is one that has been completed and ready to go - it is in 1/24th scale so is quite small. (Keep your eyes posted for more to come)Well, I am off to try and warm my feet up before they drop off with the cold!
