Somedays, it's all under the table...

...bit disappointed yesterday, not too much hanging around for Show and Tell.......but the girls soon fixed that, it was all under the tables!.  The Cottage renovations are still in full swing and really, we just don't have the space (or stands) to display our treasures.
Betty was finishing the binding on this wonderful quilt, applique medallion of Bluebirds and flowers, surrounded by kaleidoscope blocks, its a large quilt and will live on Betty and her Darlings own bed. 
The fabrics were a gift from Betty's D-I-L awhile back, and sat in her stash awaiting inspiration, and as we can see, inspiration certainly did arrive!

 Fran was working on a piece of silk 'Crazy Patchwork' with the addition of some Suffolk Puffs, (top left pic) it's to be one of her fast selling bags.  Fran just happened to have a finished bag - yep, under the table! this one with a lovely braided silk shoulder strap.

Catti has been beavering away, organising the 'Leaf Notions' for our up-coming (fast upcoming) TREE-mendous Quilt Show, we reached our target some weeks back and for her organisational efforts Caitti was awarded our 'Star of the Month' at yesterdays meeting.  She was almost as thrilled to receive the award as the rest of us were to have her win.
Just look at all those busy beavers in the background, when we get our Cottage back to normal, there is going to be Show and Tell in abundance!

Catti then pulled out a quilt - yeah, from under the table - to show us.  A pastel take on the 'Hidden Wells' quilt from our workshop with June.

June wasn't able to be with us yesterday, but had sent along a flimsey of our next workshop showing a two colour variation.  Striking design, can't wait for the workshop.
