Just a few reminders before we get the show and tell underway.
Firstly I have been so busy getting off parcels to TK that I forgot to remind everyone that the next sewing day in Penrith is on this Sunday. Please can you let me know if you are planning to come so that I can be prepared. If you have not joined us before we are a friendly lot. No fancy stitching needed - just straight stitch.
We meet at Penrith Patchwork at 10am and sew till around 2pm, sometimes later depending on store hours. I try to bring some morning tea but you need to bring your machine and your lunch. I will provide all the materials. BYO coffee mug if you want tea or coffee. I always forget to add that. This week I hope to make a few special laundry bags and some quilt tops to match some of the special requests on my list.
Also the next sewing day at my home is on Friday the 18th. Same routine. Start at 10am and sew till 3-ish. BYO lunch and machine and I provide the rest. Let me know if you need the address.
Hope to see you at one or the other day. They are always fun and friendly days!
And don't forget to reserve your tickets for the dinner.
It is shaping up to be a great night!
So now on with the show!
29 quilts this week and 67 laundry bags.
1140 quilts and 2092 laundry bags for 2013.
When they saw tea towels in an earlier blog entry they liked the idea. They placed an add in a local paper and in a few days we had people dropping them off plus one kind lady rang and ask if they could pick up 40 from her home. They have so far finished 4 boxes of laundry bags!
Remember all those Pink blocks we made for that Mystery Quilt? Well the quilt is finished and is on its way but I can't post a pic til it has been received because the recipient reads the blog! and watches the FB page. Rest assured thought that she will let me know as soon as she has received it. She is very excited to see it!
