I also bought a set of star blocks, probably pieced from 1950s fabric and there is a needle still stuck into the fabric. The stars have all been made so it will be a fun project to tuck into my bag as a "carry along" WIP for those little increments of time.
I also gad my Melbourne quilting group's meeting on Monday and we had a very informative talk by Kathy Kaplan, of Impact. Kathy spoke about the effects of domestic violence in our communities as well as the work that occurs to help the women and children affected. Our group made another large donation of toiletry bags, and you can see of those I made, as well as lots of pretty items to be distributed for their Mother's Day project. I took the opportunity to donate some more finished quilts and crocheted blankets.Kathy asked me to pass on her very sincere thanks for all of your donations. Delys R., could you also please thank your DD very much for her beautiful quilt which will be a treasured gift for someone in need. Kathy said that the ladies who received the quilts we have donated have been thrilled with them.
Many thanks, Jan Mac
