Getting Things Done!

While waiting for this retreat's Fold, Snip, Tear, Drop, Pass It project to start I sewed up the pincushions that I cut out late last night.  They all will be stuffed with wool from Egli's Sheep Farm in Oxdrift ON and finished off with a button on both side in the centre to give it some indents.  Then after lunch Charlene and CornĂ©, the organizers,  presented Adina with the quilt made from blocks the October ladies group stitched last year along with a photo album signed by each contributor.  It's just awesome and many a pair of moist eyes around, not just Adina's!!!  In the second last picture you'll see my block - the bowler trailer that they have and intend to camp with.  In the last picture in the bottom row, third from the right is Sylvia's block.

Finally after lunch the 7 of us who brought our one metre kid friendly fabrics played the fabric game and now we're all stitching like mad!  This completed quilt has to be returned next year and all such quilts from the other retreats will then be delivered to the hospitals for their nurseries and or neonatal areas.
