What’s happening this week




This is what I am working on this week, a candlewicking quilt, which I will tell you more about in a later posting, and as I’m not sure just how to put the photos in the order I want, the bottom one is the outside border of this quilt. I still have to anchor the block centre, and do the centre large on point block of the quilt, hopefully today.


Above is the PINK quilt that I made which will go to some lucky person this weekend.       IN THE PINK weekend is fast approaching. Below are some of the goodies that have been donated. After much thinking, I have decided that we will have mini auctions so that the retreat attendees can “bid” on them, will some play money that I have made, and put into little pink purses for them. Not sure what sort of auctioneer I shall be, but should be some fun. And can you see the pink bags, they are for the ladies who are coming for the weekend.

And on Sunday afternoon, there will be an afternoon tea out the back for a few extra guests, to join us. So if you would like something to do on Sunday afternoon, let me know and come and join in. Proceeds to the Breast Cancer Network and a chance to win the quilt. (Would love to hear from you, virtual quilter, if you are reading this!!)

So this week has been rather busy, had a tidy up in the garden yesterday and am now waiting for the mowing man to come and trim the lawn, and Friday we shall put up the PINK decorations and wait for everyone to arrive “in the Pink”!




Enjoy your week, whatever you are doing, and I shall report back next week.

What a great idea Jude!! You certainly have your hands full with all of the organising and preparing of the raffle quilt. Very timely that you have posted pics of the Candlewicking quilt, I have one to do, and I'm really stumped at how to quilt it. I like what you have done with the borders and the work around the individual blocks.
Enjoy your weekend.
