After the Fair, it's all about relaxing and catching up

This weeks blog is very kindly bought to you by Lorraine, she took the pics, wrote the words and e-mailed them off so all I have had to do is pop them into a post for you all.  Thank You Lorraine, it is most appreciated.


Judy was starting a quilt full of clam shells. This is the first row. It will be a queen size quilt and she is already cutting a sizable hole in her stash of Japanese fabrics.

 Gwen is hand quilting. She saw this pattern not long ago and said that she just had to make it. Another good use for all her fabrics.
A view of Gwen's quilt, showing more of the lovely colours and layout.






Lyn is still busy making animal quilts for the grandkids. This has been on the go for most of the year. The animals change from week to week.

 
Deanne is working on lots of Southern Stars. Can’t wait to see them all put together.
 
 
Marguerite is candle wicking. Up to her usual standard she said she has put in 5 stiches today. Well, a girl does have to keep up with the goes and check out what everybody else is doing.

 
The show and tell table had some interesting things on it.

Lyn has made a litter of puppies. They will soon be off to a good home with each of 3 granddaughters.

 
(Someone, who's name shall stay a secret just for now) made this lovely bag to sell at the Easter Fair. She was a bit slow in finishing it so it will be a birthday present for her sister instead. Maybe I better not say that in case her sister reads the blog. 

Ailsa made time to make some string pieced squares for Val's charity quilt.
 
Lorraine made an 'I spy' quilt a little bit differently to her usual. This is for a friend’s newest family member, the eldest brother has already got one of Lainey’s regular I spy quilts so something a little different was called for.
 A good search around the fabric shop found this lovely range of circus prints from Benetex called 'Under the Big Top'.
The back is a cot panel from the range but was too small to use by itself so I put on some border fabric from the Big Top range.

 Thanks again Lainey for making this blog post possible - Andrea
