Monday Ya-Ya’s

Today’s weather might not look like Spring, but the garden is producing flowers, and Linda had picked these beautiful hellebores to grace the table

20140915-162232.jpgFiona and Trish came up trumps again for morning tea!

20140915-162359.jpgIn the show and tell stakes, Deb had quilted this one for Kim

20140915-162842.jpgThe quilting looks great

20140915-162912.jpgTrish had a special show and tell (just for you, GJ!); she started this at age 11, and every week Trish’s Mum took her to Myer in Frankston to choose four balls of wool

20140915-163057.jpgthose were the days when wool was wool, and a 25g ball cost all of 25 cents!!

20140915-163151.jpgFiona also brought some crochet show and tell (again, for you GJ); this beauty was made by Fiona’s grandmother and bequeathed to Fiona.

20140915-163526.jpgLinda showed us these fabrics, bought as a kit from Amities Textiles

20140915-163816.jpgto make Steampunk blocks!!

20140915-163849.jpgI think they’d look great in with mine, but Linda wasn’t keen to hand them over!!

Kim finished knitting a pair of socks (and I had a lesson on how to finish toes!)

20140915-164043.jpgSandra’s making star-a-day blocks

20140915-164116.jpgMargaret’s having fun with hexagons – and had a pretty piece of Liberty

20140915-164152.jpgLinda’s ploughing on with her hexagons

20140915-164229.jpgTrish is working on her pretty Liberty stars

20140915-164307.jpgFiona appliquéd basket handles

20140915-164338.jpgDeb is cutting clamshells from leftovers

20140915-164417.jpgand I’ve finished two more Steampunk blocks

and set up another

Such a productive day!

    Very productive indeed, I love how the Steampunk blocks work in very nicely colourwise with Kim’s socks. I would have been eyeing off those fabrics from Amitie too.
