We haven’t quite made it home from our four week caravan holiday yet – in fact we are camping at Himatangi over Anzac Weekend. But that didn’t stop me from driving down on Friday night to meet up with the other Remnant girls for the monthly get-together. I’m so pleased I braved the heavy SH1 traffic – it was nice to meet up with the other friendly Remnant regulars too.
Mary was there for a while, still working on helping Kaye with her New Zealand bird appliqué quilt. Mary just does a little every now and again, she said. She gets the honourable mention of the evening for her delicious home made cream sponge. Served with whipped cream and topped with passion-fruit, it was “light as a feather” indeed. Great cooking, Mary!
Kaye was wrestling with the logistics of putting a fabric book together, working out how to layer the pages so they were in the right order when stitched together. Yes, the instructions were there, but Kaye decided she really didn’t need to read them.
Both Janelle and Vickie were working on their Patchwork of the Crosses projects. Vickie’s are in browns and cream, and Janelle has chosen blue and green. With all that hand stitching it will be a long term project, I expect.
There were a couple of new faces attending too. Ute has recently joined the club, and was practising free motion quilting. And her friend and neighbour Wendy who hopes to become a member was working on a Minnie Mouse cushion. Sandra was busy finishing off a quilt for an expected grand-child, due in a week or two. And I didn’t do any stitching at all. Just wanted to pop in and say hello, before heading back to the caravan club rally. Hopefully I will be able to spend the whole time there next month. Why don’t you come along too?
