Lunching, chatting, sewing, drinking, lots of Show'n'Tell but mostly we spend the day smiling and laughing.

Guess what we enjoyed for Lunch today... it was a big bucket of ICE with a bakers dozen of king prawns on top... How decadent are WE!!
Cate was busy sewing the binding down on her Lisa Walton quilt before she sews all the beads on.

Claire has made this quilt for her boyfriend... lucky boy!
Claire's handwork.

Gay made this Purple and Yellow Quilt for her Grandaughter.
Gay made the quilt below for a Charity using the left overs from the bigger one above. While Gay is in Australia she makes several quilts for Charity, she also makes big quilts such as the lovely big one for her Grandaughter.
Gay is heading back to her English home in Romsey in Hampshire in about 9 days, so we won't see her till next year... I hope she keeps sending me photos of her quilting to put on our Blog.
Heather's Quilt made with 4" squares.

Liz was busy beading this quilt made in a Lisa Walton class.

Pennie decided there would be a Show'n'Tell Competition today... she didn't tell anyone so she won easily LOL

Pennie's #1 - Half Inch hexagons going around and around the edge.

Pennie's #2 - Ku-ring-gai Quilters Challenge - 'Animal-Mineral-Vegetable, something in your garden'
There is only one thing in this quilt which was only found in my garden... in my imagination :-)

Pennie's #3 - Bonnie K. Hunter - Carolina Christmas, with borders still to come.

Pennie's #4 - I made this little tray cloth using the left over triangles of the Bedford Mystery Quilt... see below. And... Pennie's #5 was the Bedford Mystery Quilt.

Sue's Handwork.

Several of us had our Bedford Mystery Quilts with us... some finished and some still in blocks, we asked those who still hadn't started their Mysteries to leave the room while we poured over the quilts and took photos... but if I showed you the photos I'd probably have to shoot you... and myself! So here is a teaser of the fabrics we were sent to make the Mystery and I will post the photos of the quilts when we get permission from the Designer and Organizer.

Post Script..... I just received this photo from Shirley in Victoria...

Shirley often comes to our Blue Gum gatherings when she is up in Sydney, she is also doing the Bedford Challenge and is showing us her progress so far... Well done Shirley can't wait for the finished product!
