Sew and tell from home Aor 3 2020

Cathy made herself this table runner using the 
Making Waves pattern by Laurie Shrifin Designs

Louise made this "A Sunburnt Country- Renewal"
 wall hanging for an exhibition that was to be held 
in Taree. Unfortunately it was cancelled due 
to current restrictions.

Scrappy placemats made by Louise to match the
 table runner she made recently. Another UFO completed.

Three very cute Easter placemats for 
Maureen's grandchildren.

Meryl made this door stop as a wedding
 present for a friend's daughter who loves
 her chickens. Unfortunately, the wedding had
 to be postponed so this little chick will have to
 go into lock-down for a while.

Meryl has been amusing herself  sorting scraps of 
fabric in preparation for a string quilt. A very 
messy job, but good fun

using fabrics from our donated stash 
and Erica quilted it. it is to be donated

This quilt top was donated by a generous quilter
 after our break in last year. Narelle offered
 to quilt it ready to go to one of the charities we support

Another donated quilt top, quilted and finished by Erica

Clare is very pleased with her "work in
 progress" so far. It will become the centre
 of a quilt and is all done by hand,
which is not her preferred method of patchwork
