Quilters' Circle - 8th November, 2010

November already! Five of us got together today, and had a lovely afternoon.

Joy was hand-quilting her miniature mariners' compass quilt:
Joy is on a "finishing" drive - she is working at completing unfinished items, rather than starting anything new.

Marilyn was machine-piecing the border for this football-related block:
Guess which football team?

Vireya cut out an apron panel she recently purchased:

Marie was assembling her baby ball:

Glennys added hair to a Raggedy Anne (or is this Andy?) doll:
This one is for her grand-daughter.  Glennys made the same dolls for her children, using the same pattern.  It is now a family tradition.  She also showed us the cute outfits she has made for the dolls, using a very appropriate border print.  I didn't photograph the clothes, so I hope Anne and Andy come back for a visit before they go to their new homes.

We had lots of books and magazines to read, and Glennys very kindly brought along some very yummy chocolate-chip biscuits:
Thanks, Glennys!

And speaking of chocolate, the childcare centre is having a fund-raising chocolate drive, so we had to help out...

Last time Mary, one of the knitters, offered around pieces of a red-flowering salvia from her garden, and today she brought them along all potted up for us. Thanks, Mary!

Our next meeting will be in two weeks, on 22nd November. Hope to see you then!

In the meantime, some birthday wishes:

Happy birthday tomorrow to one of our readers, Dorothy. Hope you have a lovely day!

Happy birthday to Marie for this coming weekend. Hope something nice happens for you on the day!

  1. Hello Vireya and everyone.

    This is the first time I have been on the computer for a few days.
    I would like to thank everyone for my Birthday Wishes. What a lovely surprise!
    It looks like you are all very industrious.
