What was happening at the Blue Gum on the first Saturday of this month! Sorry this post is later than usual, I know lots of you have been checking this Blog on the off chance.

 I wasn't able to go last weekend, but my trusty friend Claire took lots of photos for us all.  Thanks Claire :-)

The first two quilts were made by Kyishia, nice and fresh and summery aren't they, just perfect for the odd cool evening in Summer.

 This is Selina's Show and Tell, doesn't she look happy :-)

Here is a striking looking quilt from Stephanie.

 Gay Jenkins from Romsey in the UK sent me a photo for this quilt all about New York!  Gay has just celebrated her 80th Birthday and she's still making quilts for all her Grandchildren. 

This is what Gay wrote:-   It was made from fabric (6 fat quarters) brought to me by Trudi, after their trip to NY. Olivia wanted a memento, Trudi said a cushion but Olivia was determined she wanted a quilt! 

I hope you get to come back to Australia next year Gay.  We miss you.

 Rita has been very prolific this month, all the quilts below are her's.  These first two quilts are Quilts for Valour and Rita is donating them to returned service men in the USA.

 This is a Christmas Table Runner, Claire tells me the back is Halloween but she missed getting a photo of it.
 Here is Rita's Jean Quilt, we saw the top last month and now it's all finished and for her BIL.

Look at these Belgium Waffles!!!!!    Chocolate Ice Cream and Persian Floss!  Claire asked me to guess who ordered it and it wasn't her... well it wasn't me either but I'm drooling here so I'd better go and get some breakfast and hope the culprit  fesses up anytime soon  :-)  Yummo!
