Great meeting

Recently at our AGM we all agreed that were not doing as much at our meetings as we used to and that it had to be a little more structured. You will see from the following photos that we have done quite a lot of work at our last couple of meetings.


This is a show and tell. Gaynor has just finished this lovely quilt and here she explains how it was made. She made all the required blocks and took it to a lady who then made it up for her with her long arm machine. It's a beauty!


Here is a better image.


This is also work made by Gaynor at a class she attended recently. This looked so professional and used a black bin bag, some newspaper, wadding, clear plastic and plastic thonging.
Below is some of the work developed after our shell embroideries demonstration by Rosemary at the last meeting.






As you can see Ann is busy working on a quilt. I'm sorry the photo is of such a poor quality.


Here everyone is busy doing something or other, so a great improvement on some of our meetings which had become, tea, cakes and chat with lots of laughter.

I love the shell embroideries and would like to try something similar myself. The quilt is also beautiful and no mean feat - a quilt is quite a commitment. Your group sounds a bit like the one I belong to - it is all too easy to forget why we meet and just get down to enjoying eachothers company! We have to discipline ourselves too sometimes.
