I've finally had a productive week of quilting or at least better than before. I attended my quilter's meeting of AQA on Monday and as that's a 2 1/2 hour trip each way, not much else got done but it was great to catch up with my quilting friends again. Actually I forgot that I did manage to make 2 rice bags for Timor.
Then on Tuesday I quilted 4 tops and finished putting a crocheted blanket together. Then on Wednesday I bound 2 of the tops and quilted 2 more as well as packing boxes of goods for East Timor. I received a large box of 90 rice bags for Hiam Health in Timor and they were made and donated by a group of quilters from Wauchope in NSW. They've done a wonderful job in making so many bags and they will be used to distribute rice as part of Hiam Health's program to combat malnutrition. I was told they can use 55,000 and although they have received some 2,000 or so, they can still use more so I am busy cutting and making bags when there's time.
My back and shoulders were complaining after quilting so many quilts for the last few days so today was a day to catch up with other chores. This weekend I have a quilting weekend of classes at the Dookie Weekend and it's always a fun time, especially seeing the tutors Show and Tell. I've shown 2 of the finished quilts and the blankets but need to finish off the bindings before I take more photos.
Last night I de-constructed 9 flannel shirts for a retreat challenge which is due in 3 week's time, so there's plenty of time to get that done- isn't there? At least I've made a plan and that's usually the biggest challenge!
Bye for now and back to the binding.
