Fourteen lof us turned up at the Pennant Hills Pub yesterday, it was a lovely small group of happy friendly and busy quilters.

 Sharon:-    Do we really want Pennie to take out photo today?
Maureen:-    Yeah!  go on it won't hurt.
The real Sharon and Maureen.

Irene B. and Gillian.

Irene L. and Pennie.

Jill and Lynne.

Kathleen and Jan.

Nola and Rita.

Heather and Glynis.

Very busy hands make for some really beautiful work.

What does one need for a happy day.           One glass of Champagne, a Kit Kat and some sewing  :-)
I wonder who this belongs to!

 Heather is onto Block 11 of her amazing quilt, there will be 12 blocks when all finished.

 Irene B. knitting a scarf for the Homeless, as was Irene L. crocheting a scarf for the same cause.

 Irene L. work at the end of the day.

 Something interesting going on here with Kathleen's work.

 Something just as interesting going on here with Jan's work... I hope we eventually see the finished products! 

 Now here's a story...  Many years ago, Maureen made the quilt in the photo top left, it's been on her bed for a long time but it's worn out and faded... so believe it or not!  Maureen has unpicked all her old hand quilting and is searching for ideas of how to put this quilt back together again.  Love to see what you decide Maureen.

 Wow!  What a blast from the past.  Nola is putting together a 17 year old SCQuilters Signature Quilt.  Keep going Nola this block looks wonderful.
 This is fascinating!  Nola is the first entry in this contemporary textile book, read about her work below, wonderful stuff.

 I'm knitting more ANZAC poppies but why does the colour go bonkers??

 Sharon does the most amazing fussy cutting work, just look very closely at her block above.

Not much Show and Tell this week, Rita was the only SCQuilter with something to show.

 Cute little Ladybird cushion for a daughter.

Rita's finished quilting and binding her Blue and White quilt, check out the delicious flannel backing below :-)

I wasn't able to make it to the Blue Gum this month, too busy and important by far I was! But... have no fear the lovely Becky, of whom there is no photo, took lots of really wild and funky photos for us all. Thanks Becky!

These two quilters look as though they are quilting in the dark... but... no!  They can see quite well.
Hello Emma and Rita!  you two seem to have the very special seats for today.

The names of 6 of the ten in this photo are firmly in my head... but... two just aren't falling into place... Help someone please!
Cath, Heather, Quilter #1, Quilter #2, Jill, Jo, Rhonda and Kathleen.
Jo, Rhonda, Kathleen, Jackie,  Cath, Heather, Christine and Denise.
Glynis, Lissa, Liz, Lynne, Lyn, Stephanie's back, Jenn, Selina's back, Jackie and closer to the camera, Irene and Christine all the way from Bathurst!
Jenn, Jackie, Cath, Selina and Stephanie's side.
Rhonda and Kathleen.
Liz, Lynne and Lyn.

Handwork, so many great things being made and so varied! Fun, Fun, Fun... but I'm guessing here so please... let me know who's is who...

I have a sneaky feeling Liz has started another funky embroidery.

I've seen these before and I'm channeling Sel??

Dunno what's going on here but they all look delicious :-)

Now that's funky!  I love it but who does it belong to... and hey is that a little Easter egg?
I now have it on good authority that this work belongs to Jenn! 

Binding, Binding, Binding going on here, I saw this one being held up but Who's does it belong to I wonder!

I know now... it's Jackie!

These are Mine!   If I'm wrong here I think they should be mine anyway!

Heather!  Yay!

Mmmm... Quilter #1?

These are Rita's fabrics, aren't they?

I'm guessing Glynis!!???

This one is easy peasy... Lissapoo!

I've seen this knitting before!  It's Irene!

I've also seen this beautiful work before... Lynne!!

I'd know that neck anywhere... Lissa!

Socks... let me think... Becky???

Another Guess... Stephanie??
