September 23 2009 Quilting Newsletter


Hello one and all, greetings from Bellaonline – Quilting. Another week has flown by and I’m popping in to say hello, perhaps stay for a quick cuppa and then off, out of your hair for another week.

I wonder how things are in your life of quilting and family. All of us are creating “mini-miracles” on a daily basis to keep ourselves and our loved ones happy, healthy, content and much loved. We don’t look for awards, or medals. Just the knowledge that we’re appreciated and that we contribute in a meaningful way to the welfare of others.

I attended a Quilt group meeting this morning. The group is the Sherwood Stitchers and I was a guest of one of the members, Ruby. What a lovely bunch of ladies. The fellowship and camaraderie that I witnessed in that group was just lovely. Each member is busy doing their own thing, as well as doing for others. This morning they were a group of about 25. I liked the way they did “show and tell”. Everyone attending was asked if they had any show and tell. Some declined, but most either bought something along specially or showed what they were currently working on. They also had a showing of old milk jug covers. These were very popular in the early part of the last century, designed to keep insects (especially flies) out of the milk jug. There was an enormous array of covers, some made by the members themselves, others made long, long ago and were very precious. It was a very special morning for me and I’m grateful that I was able to be part of their monthly meeting.

Last week I posted another of Jenny Riley’s wonderful quilt poems. This one is about the Skeletons of Quilting. I love it and it definitely reflects my position in the world of UFO’s. Here’s the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art1665.asp

All’s quiet on the forum front at the present time. I’ve been adding some tips for quilters. Here’s the link to the forum: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=43

My gifts for you this week are a couple of beauties!!
Firstly, I stumbled across this fun quilt game at the Threads Magazine site. It’s a spot the difference game they’ve created using their past cover photo shots. I had lots of fun, but haven’t been able to crack 100% found yet. Let me know how you go won’t you. Here’s the link:

As you know I’m a bag/basket kind-a-girl and found this pretty petite fabric basket that I made and am using as a mini bin for my threads etc when I’m sewing in my lounge room. It looks gorgeous and I boast to my DH that it’s another useful patchwork and quilting tool!! Here’s the link:

Well, I guess I’d better put this laptop away and get onto some cleaning. We had a terrific dust storm blow in yesterday and everything’s got a fine layer of topsoil on it that has blown in from the centre of Australia in a massive weather front. Yet another example of weird weather we’re experiencing on the globe at present.

Anyway, that’s all for now, keep your heart full of love and patience and make time for yourself over the next week, to do something just for you!

Cheerio for now, and have fun quilting!
