June 19 2012 Quilting Newsletter

Hello again, itís me popping in to say hello. The sun is streaming into my study at present; this time of the morning, especially on a wintersí sunny day is so pleasant. The room warms up with the heat of the sun, and the garden is just singing. All very good for inspiration for newsletter writing!

Iíve had a busy week this week, not making, but sorting and tidying. As you know Iím involved with a group call Sunshine Linus Inc, who make quilts and other comforts for people in need on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. (Hereís a link to the blog if youíd like to see what we get up to: http://sunshinelinusgroup.blogspot.com.au/) .

I had a lot of ďstuffĒ being stored in my sewing room and downstairs bathroom and Iíve had great success in tidying and sorting. My shoulders are sore from lifting and folding, but itís done now and I feel a certain glow from my halo!!LOL. Next Monday (our monthly Sunshine Linus gathering) we will be celebrating our 2nd Birthday! Canít believe that weíve done so much in such a short time. Anyway, we are going to have some fun and games, some home bake and lots of laughs. Iím really looking forward to it.

Last week I posted an article about Round Robins that are being conducted in quilting circles around the world. These were very popular in the 1980ís when quilters were getting some good skills together and sharing what they knew. Hereís the link to that article which also has a heap of links to current online round robins: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art176822.asp

Iíve also popped a question on the forum and have asked readers to tell us about their experiences with round robins. Hereís the link to the forum and a chance for you to contribute: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/769048#Post769048

So, onto my little offerings for this week. I hope you enjoy the browse:
