There were nineteen of us all together, including Maria and Caroline. Paula has been due to join us, but unfortunately was laid low with a cold. What a shame, get well soon.
You can see that everyone had plenty of room, and they had made sure there were enough extension leads etc. The big table for layering up was very handy.
Lunch was fabulous! They had thought about sandwiches or a buffet, and then decided it would be easiest to do baked potatoes, and provide a selection of fillings. The potatoes were bought out of funds and the fillings and deserts were brought by each member. What a great idea!
Here are people ready for food!
One lady had brought her granddaughters, who did sterling work. One of them felt she had done her bit by lunchtime (quite understandable!) but the other one got hooked on these scrappy pinwheels and was determined to make 25 blocks and join them into a top.
Success! What a great job! Even better, she’s taken it home with her to finish! You are a star!
We also made some wiggly bags for Ward 27 at the Royal Infirmary. These are for the cancer patients to store their Hickman lines so they don’t get pulled or knocked. Over the day, there were 42 made! Great total.
We had a wonderful day and were very grateful for the members of Quilting Together for inviting us. I will see them again soon, to collect the quilts. Hooray!
