Quilters' Circle - 28th November, 2011

It was our second-last meeting of the year today.

Glennys was back, with good news about her grand-daughter's recovery. Today Glennys worked on a couple of the remaining blocks for her "My Blue Heaven" quilt.
This is one of them, and the other is a 64-patch block.

It was great to have Joy back again. She still isn't feeling great, but we were happy she was well enough to attend. During her illness she has done some sewing, and a couple of her long-term projects are now completed tops.  We look forward to seeing them at future meetings. Today Joy was sewing beads and shiny bits to this Christmas tree:

Vireya made a few pentagon shapes, and stitched together most of another sunflower:

Carol brought along this project which we think wins the prize for the oldest unfinished quilt (if there were such a prize). It is Carol's first quilt, which she began in 1995.
Today she did a little "unsewing" to fix a couple of blocks which were in the wrong place, while her lovely daughter Isabella had a look at everyone's work and entertained us with big smiles before taking a little nap.

Marie has added the roof and the garden to the house she showed us last time:
It looks great! She also embroidered the title banner for the top border. Today she was working on embroidered details for the bottom border.

Our next meeting is in two weeks, on the 12th December. It will be the final meeting for the year, and we will have a combined afternoon tea break-up with the knitters. Bring a plate if you are coming along!
