Today

has been Guild day, and it was the Biggest Quilting Bee other wise known as the Buggest Morning tea, so we fundraise for cancer research. The speaker today was the founder of Knitted Knockers, they provide knitted bra inserts for women who have been through a mastectomy.

Our speaker, sadly not the most flattering photo

the Knitted Knockers and knitting packs with patterns
We were to decorate out tables in pink and yellow, I didn't get a photo of the winning table, but it was beautiful...lots of pink roses, tea cups and saucers and candles with twinkling lights.
These quilts are from the Travelling Suitcase Exhibition

which was supposed to be with us at the Quilt In, but the booking was forgotten

so we had them this month...they are beautiful quilts, the theme was Flora and Fauna.
There wasn't much show and tell today
This is a beautiful quilt that was started in a class at the Guild, Margaret the creator was sewing the binding today.
I have finished my row by row of stars

one more row ro sew onto this KOGO blanket

this one is done and waiting for it's crochet edging.
We had a silent auction at Guild today
I was the successful bidder on these pots of bulbs

and this lovely pot with pansies and lobelia I think, it is all pink coloured flowers. Will look wonderful on the table once it grows a little more.
Time for some dinner and a G & T I think.
Happy sewing.

What a lovely post... all those quilts are lovely. Can you get pink lobelia? I think I've only ever seen blue.
You must show and tell if it does come out pink!
