Fran got into the creative mode with a vengeance, Fran loves embroidery, so is really looking forward to assembling a canvas for some of her lovely stitching. Patricia, who wasn't so convinced at first, decided to give crazy a go after Sheila's tutorial.......with the occasional comment or two of 'maybe.....perhaps....'
Here is a rather interesting little thing for you to try out, and if you have a colour blind family member or friend, this site gives you a real insight into just what colours they do see,..........in my world....this answers a whole bunch of questions about teenagers bedrooms and the decorating thereof.
It is a Colour Scheme Designer, you get to click on your main colour and then choose you colour wheel, be it, complementary, triad, etc etc., so pop on over to http://www.colorschemedesigner.com/ for a visit and click on the 'vision simulation' tab in the top right hand corner for the various colour vision simulations and the ratio of men/women and the rest of us ..........bit scarry really. But a wonderful tool for planning your next quilt colour palete.
Remember this lovely quilt from Lorraine?
"The totally un-me pastel polka dots have finally been put to use. Ava arrived in January but I only got to see her last week.
She is obviously the most beautiful child in the world, being my great nice, but the quilt don't look half bad either".Lainey
Sorry about the quality of the pic, its had a bit of a travel, from phone, to computer, to computer to you.
Denise bought in some delicious bags for show and tell, two ruched lovelies decorated with organza flowers that she got from Johno's, firstly sweet roses all in a row.....
We rounded the afternoon off with this lovely spread, mini banana muffins, a lovely fruit cake and biccies and dip..........yummo, we really do do ourselves proud.
And now, in Lorraine's words and with her pics, a chance to catch up with what the lovely ladies got up to last Wednesday. Thank you so much for making this effort for our group Lorraine. -A
'Cos you were away I thought I should get out the Camera, aren't you glad I had it with me?, and do the rounds of the pw room.
Starting with Beryl. She created a roll based on a Aust. Post roll to carry blocks. The sealed ends of the roll let her casrry the necessaries. Neat and compact.
Pic to follow. - am having a few probs with some of the e-mailed pics.
Wendy has been playing with Dick and Jane. She made a gorgeous bag,
Denise has been playing bag lady again. These are really lovely. Loved the charcoal and gold fabric. I want a pup out of that when she breeds it. I am glad to see that Denise never wastes her left over knitting yarn. What great embellishments.

Lorraine presented a mystery object. Everyone had a guess but no one came close.
Another day was spent in the back room with ladies going crazy - patchwork that is. Another day of fun and help for those crazy challenged. I wouldn't have thought that was a problem in our group. Jan, our resident expert on all things crazy lent some expertise.
