The two entries above were late scratchings. According to the stewards, the first one (mine) was a safety issue- as one of the horses may be too interested in the carrot on top, and the second (Marilyn's) one, on account of its resemblance to a spider - which may startle horses and jockeys alike. Jockeys in particular.
If you enlarge this pic and look VERY carefully, you can see that Helen (I) have started knitting yet another dishcloth in a very pretty lavender cotton from Bendigo Woolen Millls.
Jeanette has been working on the border of the quilt she is making - designed by Di Ford. Splendiferous!
From little strips big strips grow and voila - here is Jo with this superb quilt. I trust your tub of scraps is somewhat reduced - beautiful border fabric too.
Maggy has made this fabulous quilt for her great grandchild in England. It is an absolutely beautiful quilt for a child of any age. Welll done, Maggy.
Di has made this terrific Christmas stitchery. It is fantastic!
Here, Marilyn W. has decorated one of Dijanne Ceval's medieval lady lino- cuts. Unbeliebly great work by both ladies. The stitching is just superb.
From Marilyn again, a very clever quilt made with 7 FQs. It is to be donated to Quilts of Valour Australia. Thankyou Marilyn.
And so, until next time, when, on Wednesday 2nd of December 2015 we will be having our Christmas extravaganza.
Please bring along:
Yourselves wearing something Christmassy - it can be either underwhelming or overwhelming - or just red and/or green.
A small plate of food to share for lunch.
A home made or something in kit form gift for our Pressie swap.
An open mind to engage in our usual festivities, quizzes, caroling etc.
A decoration to add to the Christmas atmosphere if you have something lying around at home.
Any other Scquilters in the area - south east of Melbourne - well within 1000 kms.
