Today was my last obligation as President of Tauranga Patchwork and Quilting Group. The ladies made a fuss of me with numerous hugs and thanks, some lovely cards; 2 gifts and these lovely flowers. I am hoping the Lizianthus will recover - the tips drooped on the way home as it was so hot here today and I came home via the supermarket. The flowers D ordered match my lounge and are Sunflowers, Chrysanthemums, Statis and Lizianthus with Hygdrangea leaves. The card the Committee had signed has Jill Maas Dolls on it. One of the presents I left unopened till a day when I need a little treat.
We had a shared Christmas lunch then I started work on trimming and assembling some of the healing hearts blocks ladies had made. Thanks ladies.( I will show progess photos when I make some ). J has made a whole quilt top and decided to take it home and complete it, so she can send a finished quilt down to Shirley. ( I explained how Shirley was completely swamped with blocks to sew into quilt tops. ) I will try and make what I am working on into a finished quilt too.
I am very much looking forward to a spell from running meetings and having the ultimate responsibility for the group. I hope to take more time to sew and look forward to being just a normal club member next year.
