Catti was glowing in her praise of Gwen as a teacher and very grateful to have had the opportunity to learn all the different aspects of quilting in the series of workshops presented by Gwen last year.
That favourite day of the year for many came around last Sunday, yep, you guessed it, 'Mother's Day', lots of flowers and pressies made an appearance but Janice reckons she got one of the best. Her Daughter, who does lovely cross-stitch inserted a native kangaroo paw flower into this sewing compendium as her gift. Janice has just about worn it out with pats!!
A closer view of the cross-stitched flower and a flimsey of our next workshop that Janice will be presenting.
and when she wasn't strolling and patting, Janice was stitching down the binding on this lovely quilt, the top was a donation, and Pamela Jones from Kimz Sewing and Patchwork Center in Warana very kindly did the beautiful quilting in between the chains, the finished quilt will be raffled at the Biggest Morning Tea being held at 'Craft in the Chapel' in Nambour next Thur.19th.. Pop along for a cuppa and a chance to win.
Maree bought along a 3-D wall hanging that she made about 2 years ago through Quilt University, just to show some of the gals what is available as quilting courses with Quilt University. '4 Elements' is a very textural wall hanging, with silver lightning bolts shooting throug 'Air',and even tiny shells stitched to the sand in 'Water'

Heather has been knitting up a storm for her new Grandie to be, the first babe for one of her daughters. Bub will be born in the middle of winter in Sydney so those cute little cardies will be just the ant'z pantz.
Marcia is busily crocheting a knee rug for friends she and her Darling will be visiting next week, yep, next week!, and although she was busily telling a rather hilarious tale from her last holiday, as you can see, those fingers didn't stop for a second.
Crocheting is really 'The Thing' at the moment, Marguerite is also making a knee rug, sadly I chopped her head off in the pic!........no I didn't!, I just had a flat battery in the camera and by the time I took a pic of Marguerite everything was way way fuzzy, but heres the goodies anyway. Sorry Marguerite.
