As promised all the names of people who left comments during the last week were put into a draw. (Not a drawer, as I wrote the first time!!) The winner of this bundle of items is “Hellie”, who did make a google account for herself and left me a comment on the blog. Hellie often comments on what I have written, but usually it is verbal or email or text. I thank all those who “came out of the woodwork” and commented, as well as those who often leave me messages. I might do this again another time as this was fun.
Today was our monthly Gumnut Angels Sewing Day. We use donated scrap fabrics and make a quilt with them, to give to local people who are not well, or going through hard times, to let them know that someone cares. It was a good attendance today, for the first meeting of this year. There was lots of sewing, trimming, pressing, laying out of blocks happening. The laughter and banter was good to listen too. It was a bit tricky when there were several conversations happening at the same time, and you listened to one and thought it applied to you, and acted on it, and it was really meant for the other person! It was one of those, “you had to be there” moments.
Quite a few quilts were worked on today, some completed, and some still in progress. Now they just need to put some pressure on the quilter that does their quilts for them!
This quilter has passed the half way mark of the candlewicked quilt that I loaded yesterday. So you know what I shall be doing tomorrow.
