Linda's back!

On the kind of autumn day that makes you feel proud to be a Sydneysider a bunch of 'graduates' from last year's St Mark's Stitchin' Mission beginner quiltmaking course gathered for afternoon tea at Di C's apartment overlooking the harbour.
With our quilting teacher, Linda Hungerford, back in town for a brief visit we were excited to meet up with her again. Here she is with Marvellous Margaret.
The indomitable Moo and our talented Averil were there too.  Averil had brought along photos of her latest creations - exquisite heirloom embroidered pillow cases and nighties.
There was lots of interest in Di C's almost-finished New Life quilt, with blocks made with tiny scraps from our Stitchin' Mission quilts.  We're making these up in a child size to add to our growing stash of bright and beautiful quilts for the KU Marcia Burgess Autism Specific Early Learning & Care Centre.  Di has a real gift for putting the right colours together and we loved that gold tone-on-tone sashing and all agreed (along with Jill, Louise and Christine in the photo) that her striped binding is just going to be perfect. 

 It wsn't an entirely girly gathering though, and this handsome young man was the centre of attention.  When we last met Tay, Linda's grandson, he was a tiny newborn, so we were excited to see him again, along with his yummy mummy, Jill, Linda's daughter.  My, how you've grown, little man!
