10th May 2014

A lovely few hours spent together today at our usual gathering place, upstairs at The Quilters Store Salisbury where this month we welcomed Violet who shared a little about herself whilst working on these lovely big hexies.


Margaret was on to a great idea with these bags, purchased from Woolworths supermarket for just $2 then covered in Suffolk puffs & hot glued into place. Don’t they look great!  I think each and every one of us was inspired to buy one or three of these bags and do our own decorating in the near future. Excellent gift idea.  Violet was quick to nip downstairs and purchase a couple of Clover puff makers after a quick demo from Margaret on how easy the discs are to use & the great results they give.IMG_0315

Apologies in advance for the new addiction Violet lol.  That’s the thing with us, sharing is caring and every get together someone always has something to inspire the rest of us Winking smile


IMG_0313Janet popped in for a quick visit & showed us the stash-busting placemats she’s been busy with. Love those little pegs to.

IMG_0319Gail isn’t sure what this stitchery will become yet but having begun the tradition of making a Christmas Stocking for each of her grand children, this may become part of Number 10’s stocking.

IMG_0317Julie was working on her hexi’s which I didn’t get a pic of sorry Julie, maybe because I was stunned by how many beautiful and unique cards she has been making. We don’t know where she finds the time but boy, they look great.

IMG_0318IMG_0321 I put the finishing touches on my A5 journal cover and brought along some quilling I’ve been playing with. I could have removed the scraps bits before taking the photo. Oops.

Ann was working on her stitchery from last month, telling us that she will be away next get together, travelling to Alaska, Canada & Hawaii. We will miss you – have a wonderful trip.  Also away for our June get together will be our worldly traveller Margaret, visiting Norfolk Island. There will be lots of travel stories to hear about in July!


Kayt was hand quilting this beauty to be given to a friend and had us in fits of laughter as we each introduced ourselves to Violet – you had to be there! So come along on June 14th. We’d love to see you then.

Happy stitching

  1. Oh yes, another day if inspiration, a quick stop at Woolworths for Gail & I to begin our own suffolk puff decorated hessian shopping bag was a must after seeing the lovely bags Marg had shown us. Good times, great meeting you Violet!
