Here's proud Glenda, a Wildlife Carer!
Another of her babies, Lorraine! Isn't she just the most wonderful girl looking after these rescued creatures - hats off to you, Glenda!
They came along to our WAQA Sewing Day - South of the River - the Swan river runs through the beautiful city of Perth. Our regular guild day is held north of the river once a month, so this is a nice little treat to happen , maybe half-yearly as we live south of the river!
Lots of Show and Tell - a really, really striking quilt of Robyn's in a Drunkard's Path design using Aboriginal type fabrics. Not Robyn's usual style at all - prompted by her husband when they visited the Northern Territory!
I can honestly say I have never used these fabrics, and really admire those who can co-ordinate them so beautifully and turn them into objects of art!
Below, dear friend Gwen's quilt - Gwen is a well-known physiotherapist and she has mad this quilt for her long-time receptionist who turns 70 this week! A Split 9-Patch in gloriously rich flannelettes - isn't she just going to love it?
Our Girlfriends! Group made lots of quilts from blocks made by WAQA members last year - for October, Breast Cancer Month here! Dear friend, Louise has just finished quilting this one below. It is beautifully quilted and quite a stunner!
I can't resist showing you another great beauty - married 30 years, dear Girlfriend! has become the new owner of a beautiful 2 carat diamond solitaire. It is a gorgeous Argyle diamond - the Argyle Mine is one of the world's largest diamond suppliers and situated in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia. Oh, isn't love grand - and it couldn't happen to a nicer person!
A very long Post for those who have stayed with it - hope you have enjoyed the Australiana, learning about our wonderful country and enjoyed the eye candy! Happy weekend!
PS - oh, I meant to tell you in my last Post - if you would lik to learn the finer tips about needle-turned applique, pop over and visit Janet, at Quiltsalott - a true master of this technique!
