Quilters' Circle - 8th December, 2014

Today was our last meeting for the year, so there were goodies to share, and a few surprises.
Lots of yummy stuff!

Glennys made this bowl after seeing the one Marilyn gave Marie in November:.
Hers has a china dish inside to hold the contents at the moment, but she is planning to replace that with a glass one so that the pretty fabric on the inside can be seen as well.

We had a surprise visit from Carol who we haven't seen for a while. Today she worked on a block for the Robyn Falloon quilt design "Airs and Graces":
Carol started the quilt a few years back, and here are the blocks she has completed so far:
Looking good!

Debbie has completed a few more stitchery blocks for her "Truly Aussie" quilt:
Today she worked on the dunny door!

Glennys has made progress on her Christmas stitchery project, including making the patchwork to surround it:
This is what she was stitching today:

Marie has added some more sections to the quilt top she showed us last time:
 Today she did some quilting on another project:

Mary from the knitting group brought along some fabric she didn't want any more, which I think all found new homes:

Marie told us about this craft market next Saturday:

Vireya showed us her work on the first couple of parts of Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion mystery quilt.
 Today she was trimming her Part 2 units:
It will be interesting to see what this turns into.

That's the end of another busy year at Sussex Neighbourhood House. The house will now be closed until February, so our next meeting is a long way off, on the 9th February, 2015. See you again then!
