See Lynnie, back middle, she's our knitting teacher. Next to her in the black top is dear Jan of Gallivantour, a lovely surpise to see her back for Christmas! Several of us carried on with our sock-knitting lesson, with a couple managing to get the heel turned.
Take note of the 'work in progress' front middle of the table - this is Kris's hexagon quilt - being assembled using American piecing method, so much work!
Kris's work prompted Gwen to show us a quilt she bought in the Appalachians in 1975 - isn't it just wonderful? Makes you wonder about all those wonderful fabrics and where they came from! It is hand-quilted in a Baptist Fan design - just beautiful! Cost Gwen the grand sum of $50 - what would it be worth today?
Thanks, dear friend Robin for trialling yet another of my Happy Bags! Robin has read over my notes and helpfully made additions and corrections The pattern will most likey be published in our Australian magazine, Down Under Quilts, early 2009.
Quite a few have asked for pattern/dimensions - hopefully I will be able to let you have them soon - I'll see what I can do!
I'm a little behind answering emails - I guess we are all pretty busy these days, so please forgive!
Have a happy day (cold and wet, here!) - hugs!
