Sharne made a bonnet to remember the women and girls that were deported to Australia, and so did one or two other people!!

June was the one that got our guild involved and her punishment for this was to help rune the stall at the FoQ, don't think she managed to escape at all!!  But we all had a nice meal together in the evening at out hotel, the Ibis, which was excellent value for money and good service.

Winner of ‘Summer in the City’

One of the students quilts, this made me laugh, reminded me of when I took the children to London when they were young and when they were asked about the best bit of their day, Kirsty said, when the train said ‘mind the gap’!  But this aside, the quilt was excellent.

My barbed wire quilt that I stitched whilst taking Dad to and fro from hospital, no awards, but got all areas marked excellent by one judge and the other gave me a good for one category and excellent for all the rest, and some very lovely comments.

Jenny's quilt is wonderful, bet you had alot to talk about. I think you bought more than Sharne and I. i spoke to someone and picked up her details about her coming to Essex to do a photo transfer workshop. Your books look interesting.
