Great meeting at Sandgate, must remember to get a photo of the venue to show you where we are meeting these days.
As Kim mentioned in the newsletter we had quite an extensive show and tell.
Helen received a lovely birthday card made by Alison
Rly brought along this piece awaiting the fabric shells
Helen made this into a birthday card that Jill received, and she loved it so much she had it framed
Sue received this birthday card made by Jan
Kym showed her WOM piece, a map of the region
This is a detail shot of Alison’s COOTs piece

Then the work everyone was doing: Sue demonstrated her fabric shells to three members. Ryl pursued making a few, but had a few troubles with her machine.

Some of the shell making parephenalia
Sue having forgotten her camera (Yes, true, sadly). Add to this some weird stuff going down with her phone- amongst other things to do with the mute button, the phone camera did some weird stuff and at one point got stuck on taking photos. (I had to delete 150 + photos from my photostream! ARRRGh. Those dead photos bumped a lot of real ones out…. ho hum….. I don’t suppose it matters…. might need a new phone in the very near future……. )
Miraculously though, there were a few more pics that did work….

Jill was adding more quilting to her WOM piece.

No prizes for guessing who this work belongs to…
Di working on her next embroidered box
Helen made her usual delish morning tea – ginger kisses extraordinaire and her specialty gluten free chocolate cake – yuumm!!
We all have a deadline to meet at our November meeting… for some of us, that isn’t going to happen because life occasionally gets in the way, and we can’t do everything all of the time! But I am sure we can play catchup over the next few months…
