I took my new bag and the placemats I have made recently for Show and Tell and 3 other ladies had finished quilts made from bandannas for canteen. Here they are.
This one had some other fabric along with the cut up bandannas.
I won't now be seeing most of these friends again till August and will miss them. I got so many good wishes for a great trip and so many hugs. They are very nice friends.
Yesterday I was sad to learn that of our 3 members who have had cancer in the last few years the one I was most worried about is okay for now but 2 others are not well at all. A mum in her 40s who now has secondaries from her breast cancer has a real struggle ahead of her. She has teenage family. I am sure they will all keep fighting it ; but that still doesn't guarantee they will win. I am now going to send messages of encouragement to them. I wish there was more I could do to change things. Everyone wishes that.
Guess what? it is pouring with rain again. One of our friends who has a much larger orchard than us, but lives quite nearby called in last evening. His kiwifruit crop is about half picked. When the rest will get done is weather dependant. That is a long wait they have had, as our was picked a month ago. It has been a trying season for growers in many ways.
