Weekly Despatches


The tally so far-

 20 quilts this week and 31 laundry bags.

345 quilts and 736 laundry bags for 2013

1362 quilts and 2110 laundry bags in total.


So, what do you think of the new name for 

Friday night Posts?


The first quilt tonight is a joint effort, pieced and quilted by Caroline (aka Deputy Nut) and bound by Angela.  Here you will see it "modeled by Angela's accommodating husband who apparently wanted Angela to make sure she told me that he actually volunteering to be our first centrefold by posing completely nude in this photo.  Hmmm, not sure I believe him - do you? 


Actually apparently he wasn't completely nude - he did keep his boots on!  Oh sure!

This is another of Caroline's quilts but this time bound by Joanne.


Angela rounded off her contribution with a cool Storm laundry bag!  Love those funky chooks inside!



Belinda

This is the second of two quilts that Melissa T sent me this week.
