Brisbane Get Together 12 November 2010

Apologies in advance for the state of the blog. My camera is doing strange things and seems to have recorded all the photos to its clipboard rather than the memory card and they don't seem to be the best quality, plus my hotmail just got hacked so I am hedging my technological bets this evening and keeping it as simple as possible

A dedicated group of SCQuilters met at the Quilters Store on Saturday for our last get together of the year.

We all brought a plate and had a lovely spread for lunch. I suspect I exceeded my recommended calorie in take for the day just in banoffie pie.

We had a secret Santa with everyone receiving a small gift.

And of course we did lots of sewing and talking and then had show and tell.

Lynell was working on this cute little stitchery.

This was my knitting. A scarf I am making.

And also had this newly finished red and cream quilt to show off.

Eldona showed us a Christmas tree quilt she is making.
As well as this nearly finished baby quilt.
Julie brought along some christmassy items

Sharon had a bag.
Margaret had an array of calico bags she was decorating for her market stall.

Apologies to all concerned, but I can't remember whether the following were part of the show and tell or the secret Santa... but they are very cute.

Next meeting will be in February next year. Same place, same time, second weekend in February.




  1. Great work Helen, you managed to make me look ok with your supposedly (not so high quality photographs)!!!LOL

  2. Sorry I missed the gathering. It looked like great fun. Houston was wonderful, NY had great quilts and we are currently touring around New England. Will share photos at our next gathering. Christine
