Quilters' Circle - 14th November, 2011

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARIE!

Today we celebrated Marie's birthday with some afternoon tea and a few cards and gifts.
Marilyn remembered the day, and sent a lovely card and gift by post, which we all admired.

Glennys couldn't be with us because her little grand-daughter became very ill over the weekend, and is in the Children's Hospital. Glennys was at the hospital with her this afternoon. We all hope that the little one makes a full recovery quickly!

Marie showed this house she is making for a gift for someone:
It will get a roof and some garden next. I'm not sure we will see it completed though, as I think she may have to present it before our next meeting.

Today Marie appliqu├ęd circles while drinking tea from her very appropriate mug:
I forgot to ask what the circles are going to become. We will have to wait and see.

The paper-pieced pentagons Vireya was playing with last time are turning into sunflowers. Today she finished stitching this one together, and most of a second one.
Very bright!

Mary dropped by and had afternoon tea with us. We tried to persuade her to come back, so maybe we will see her with some quilting next time.

Wendy is at home with a broken ankle. Hope you are back on both feet again soon, Wendy!

Special thoughts too for Joy, who has been improving but couldn't make it today, and Dorothy who celebrated a birthday last week.

We have only two meetings left for this year. The penultimate meeting will be in two weeks, on 28th November. Hope to see everyone again then!
