My big exciting news.....

Wow this is so exciting..... I went to pick up my quilt from the Mt. Gravatt Show today so there I was having a look at the quilts and on my quilt was a blue ribbon and a great rosette, the ladies were waiting for me to show up to see the results, getting first prize for this section was great but to get "small quilt champion" and "best of show" was certainly more than I had hoped for.

I received a $50 voucher at Webster & Wood hairdressers for the first prize and Best of Show was a $100 voucher for a service on a sewing machine, $20 off a facial and a $20 voucher at sewing world.

Took a piccie at the show of the quilt and the other at home.

Our New Group

The Jimboomba Quilters and Stitchers Group began on the 4th June after the closure of our local craft shop and is now going very well with appox 35 members already and each week we about 20 girls attend which is great. We celebrated our first Christmas in July last monday and it was terrific, we had started a secret santa swap at the beginning of the year (whilst still at the craft shop) with 12 girls so we opened our gifts at our party, it was so much fun. I started a new swap for the next part of the year and we now have 20 girls involved so hope it goes well. Everyone brought a plate of food for the day so we eating took up most of the day as well as much laughing and chatting.... of course. As the piccies show a great was day had by all, I had to play santa which was a bit embarassing but whats a christmas party without santa.

My Little Secret.......

Gosh its been a while since I have had anything newsworthy to tell but I do now.

I have entered my quilt (piccie below this post) "Throught the Garden Gate" in the Mt. Gravatt Show this weekend, I won't be going to the show until sunday afternoon to pick the quilt up so I"ll get to see all the quilts then and maybe have more news to tell.
