Thank You Everyone.

We just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that came to spend the day with us on Saturday at our meeting of the Castlemaine Appliqué Group...

It was such a fantastic day and we hope that you all enjoyed it as much as we did...it was a day full of quilts, fun, laughter, chit chat and cake...just perfect.
Thank you also to everyone who brought along their work for "Show & Tell"...wow, what a stunning collection of beautiful quilts....can you imagine what Castlemaine Appliqué Group's first exhibition in March 2014 is going to be like...it takes our breath away just thinking about it.

And another great thank you to every one for joining in on our extra raffle last Saturday...it was a lovely prize for one lucky person to get their hands on, and because you all so generously joined in and bought a ticket we were able to raise $500 for the 10 students from Castlemaine Secondary College who have been putting all their efforts into fund raising for "G'Day USA", a self funded trip to the United States in 2014....they were so thrilled to hear that they were $500 closer to their goal.

We are waiting patiently now for deliveries so we can show you some lovely new fabrics and books...nothing has arrived today so far bur we do have new copies of this amazing Quiltmania book, "2001 New Patchwork Patterns", by Chuck Nohara.

 If you haven't seen this book before and you are building a collection of design resources then you will love a peek at this fantastic book.
If you ever have  a day when inspiration has deserted you, well just sit down with this book and a cuppa, and all your design problems will be solved. This book is page after page of block ideas, well, as the title says...2001 block ideas.

It goes without saying that Sammy had the best fun of all, he caught up with so many of his special friends, and got all the pats and cuddles he was hoping for.

Of course blogging dogs share a special bond so his was tail wagging when he caught up with Sue-Anne, and sent home his special greetings to Buddy.
