Quilting, Sewing, Knitting and even Crocheting at the Blue Gum Pub! Not to mention the chat, the food and the wonderful laughter :-)

I wasn't feeling 100% ticketyboo last Saturday...  my experiment, two weeks ago, with some marvelous, yet untried, unknown and unpracticed ballet manoeuvre on one very slippery unknown Hotel bathroom floor in Canberra...  managed to tear my right Hamstring muscle... rendering me little movement and one hell of a lot of pain.   I didn't want to miss our Blue Gum Gathering though so through the kindness and generosity of so many quilty friends I made it to the pub, I was comfortable, I was fed and watered and even enjoyed my usual $2 ice cream cone  :-)   Thanks Everyone.

Taking photos wasn't on the agenda for me yesterday so I sent my camera around with the request for some 'Selfies' and here are the marvelous results!!   Enjoy  :-)  cheers Pennie

Show and Tell... Show and Tell... It's Show and Tell Time!

 Marianne - Bonnie K Hunter's latest Mystery Quilt - Celtic Solstice.  Marianne changed the border a little on hers and this is the smaller version of Bonnie's 2013 Mystery.

 Jean - has almost finished her Celtic Solstice, Jean is doing the borders as suggested by Bonnie... this is also the smaller version of the Mystery.

 Annie - Log Cabin and below Annie's Crochet Blanket, she has many circles already made so she intends to keep going around and around and around.
 Love Annie's Daks... I think we should all get a pair :-)

 Christine - found this old quilt when she was moving house, it's from original Feed Sacks and you can tell the difference in the texture.

 Heather - Lovely little quilt for a grandchild.

 Annie - was working on this enormous circular quilt yesterday at the Pub, hand quilting it in fact.  The photo below is a bit of a twirly one but shows the back of Annie's quilt... which she paid under $5 for ages ago.

 Jill - bought along the Fairholme Quilters Raffle Quilt, their quilt show will be held on the first weekend of April.

 Lissa - in the pretty shiny Dorothy shoes  :-)  Click click... and away we go...

Muniaba - squares in squares... how many squares are there in this quilt?   Now that's a challenge for you :-)

 Lynne - with her pretty little girly quilt.

 Marilyn - Stars and below Log Cabin.

 Sue - Pretty little girl quilt for a new born niece... and below with Heather wearing a shirt to match!

 Selina - with some interesting blocks, nothing new here, Sel's always got some interesting block underway.

 Selina - these blocks were swapped within a world wide group and below another pretty quilt top of Selina's.

 Stephanie - with her crochet by the day circles.

 Rita - Soft toy for a child... and below a lovely childs quilt.
