So another meeting bites the dust. Everyone was very industrious and lots of chatter ongoing. We all – most of us –  brought our Brisbane Challenge work to lay out and some progress has been made… Helen had a few more bits added, as had Donna and Sue  – it was fabulous to see how much Di has done, her house is looking fantastic – sorry I forgot to get a photo this month…. will have to wait until November now…. I ran late as per usual, and then had to go home again to fetch my fish….. would leave my head behind if it wasn’t attached, and I am sure everyone wonders if I haven’t done that already….


Jan’s Wm Jolly, Kim’s background, and Helen’s bamboo at left, sky, the path, and her palm trees…

Everyone worked away industriously but somehow I didn’t get photos of everyone’s work this month….  Brenda was working on some brilliant birds, painting a beautiful Cassowary  – can’t believe I didn’t get a pic. Kim was working at another “sinchie” for Brenda Gael Smith’s weekly challenge, Alex is on a new tangent making some interesting stitched pieces to eventually be joined together in an eclectic mix, and I was painstakingly unpicking … Helen organised a brilliantly delicious morning tea, great cheeses and cake  – yummo!   here are the only “work of the day” photos I got.

Show and tell: I did a little better in the photo department…. but not fantastically. I didn’t get a photo for example of Di’s daughter Stephanie’s wedding photo album, nor of her glorious silk scarves that she bought for a song at the markets……. the photo album was fantastic and distracted me from paying attention to the next couple of show and tell items, sorry Brenda and Helen I seem to have missed yours…. but Kim had 4 of her six inch weekly BGS challenge pieces there, and Alex’s rusted fabric stitcheries….and Jan had some Spoonflower fabric designed by her daughter, Fiona. Ryl had some scrapbooking buttons she inherited from an elderly Scotsman.  Di made a birthday card for Helen, who made a card for me!

Other news for October was that Brenda won first prize in the Queensland Quilt Show Open  Pictorial category with her lovely quilt “Never Enough”. Congratulations Brenda! p1060246
