May 28 2013 Quilting Newsletter


Hello there, itís just me stopping by to say hello. I hope you are well and getting on with your busy week, or perhaps youíre on holiday and catching up with your emails. In any event, I hope you are able to spend a little time with me today.

Iím in a cleaning out mood at present and currently going through my clothing and ditching the things I havenít worn for ages, or those items that have shrunk over the past year. Indeed, I have some of those! I like to give my clothing to the Opportunity shops that are local and have done so for many years. Itís getting cooler here as we approach our winter months, and the need for warm clothing is becoming critical.

We have an organisation in Brisbane called Knitting for Brisbaneís Needy and itís a terrific group of people who click clack throughout their waking hours and manage to supply a huge amount of warm well made clothing to Brisbaneís homeless and destitute. Hereís their website for you to learn more: http://www.knittingforbrisbanesneedy.com.au/index.htm

I can imagine that every town and city where you live have similar groups. Theyíre worth their weight in gold donít you think?

Last Sunday I posted a book review for a book I have recently received from Leisure Arts. Itís titled Asymmetrical Quilts and itís a great book. Hereís my review: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art180607.asp

All quiet on the forum front at present Ė I guess everyoneís busy in their lives. Donít forget, the forum is where you get to have your say. Hereís the link: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43

Iíve got some lovely stuff for you to browse through this week, Have fun!

http://www.kd-quilts.com/2012/06/solid-star-a-tutorial.html I love this scrappy star tutorial, simple and very effective.

Cheerio for now
