Tonight I had the pleasure of attending Hume Council's presentation night. We were given a brief snap shot of the diversity of programs available in the City of Hume.
Sunbury Stitchers and Quilters were presented with a cheque for $1300. This goes a long way to meeting our committments for the hire of venues and insurance. We thank the City of Hume for the grant to assist our operations.

Christmas Dinner Delights

Thanks to Robyn for organising this year's Christmas dinner at Sunata's Thai restaurant.  The food was delicious and we loved our beautiful fat quarter present.

There was great variation in the little pressies we exchanged and everyone seemed delighted with what they received.

Enjoy the following photos and take notice of the ones who continually misbehave.  No names mentioned!

Christmas is coming!

It is that amazing busy time of the year when we all get overcome with the things we need to do and the planning it takes.  It all gets to be too much.  At least one of us is organised.  Robyn has sent me a couple photos of Elsa's Christmas jelly roll quilt.  Well done Elsa!

Hope to see many of you at our Christmas dinner on Tuesday night.  I have made my little pressie to exchange and have it all wrapped and ready to go!

Our last meeting for the year is December 12th.  Please bring a small plate of festive food to share.

We will also be raffling the Christmas stitchery blocks.

See you there!

Sunbury Street Festival

The sun shone brightly on all the many visitors at the street festival today.  Our stall with its colourful quilts and items for sale attracted many visitors and some people have expressed interest in finding out more about our group.

Well done to Sheila, Evelyn and others who helped organise the event.

The following photos are from last Tuesday's meeting.

This is Barb's amazing Patchwork of the Crosses quilt made with elongated hexagon paper piecing.

Grace was working on a quilt using some embroidery panels she had created years ago!  It is never too late to rescue a UFO.

Janice has been exceptionally busy with some beautiful little projects.

Evelyn's fur kids are not going to miss out either. One special doggy will love this- his very own quilt!

Judy V is putting the finishing touches to her interesting quilt.

Sheila now has her own iPad so look out for some amazing BLOG posts from her!

Enjoy your week!  Glo x

While the cat was away...

the mice did play!

Rosie doesn't do show and tell.  So we do it for her!  Ssh!  Don't tell Rosie!  Rosie made this fantastic quilt using batik fabrics and raw edge appliqué.

Whose legs are these?

Look at Rosie's stunning quilting!

Oops!  We caught a mouse!

Pink Project

I have come across this beautiful easy project for lovers of quilting. It is quick and easy. I made one in a day. I had all the requirements at home so didn't cost anything besides the pink "sharpie"

It is designed by Helen Goddard and supports the McGrath Foundation. It is a small wall hanging and depicts love and hope. The end result can be donated to the Foundation or gifted to a person with breast cancer. The camellias have the McGrath Foundation logo  in them and depicts love through the flowers and the vase and the bird of hope. It is a simple design done on calico and using a pink "Sharpie"pen for the outline. It can be done easily on a domestic machine. She provides the design and quilting designs and a support video on her Facebook page. The link is "The Pink Project" by Helen Goddard


Bus Trips are a Quilters Dream Day Out

Once again Evelyn and her team have managed a perfect outing for us heading to Geelong and four amazing shops to explore and spend all our money.  Enjoy the photos of the happy smiling faces!

And of course there was a blowfly ready to pounce on Kay but she was ready
 with yet another paper hat solution!

A special thanks to Sue's husband Mike, our fantastic bus driver who 

once again delivered us safe and sound!
