They aren't all finished yet but here are some of the colourful clutch balls for Ruel Foundation that the ladies stitched on Friday. A dozen almost complete and more in the pipeline.All the precut packs I had made and the ones D and I cut last week got snatched our cunning plan worked. Supply all the parts and the stuffing and a little instruction and to work they went.
 It is very wet here today ( 4 inches over night and still raining ) so I am glad I got some sun on Friday on my way home from P and Q group. 
The Carmichael Reserve is at Bethlehem and not out of my way. I can hurry around the walk in 20 minutes ( plus photo time. ) Yesterday was also fine but I knew rain was on it's way so I worked feverishly all afternoon in the garden. By 5 pm my back said," hey I'm tired, better stop now." So I did just a little more and finished the job feeling very pleased with my effort.
 Today I have all the half square triangles I have been working on spread across the floor to decide on placement. I may decide to do one more row. I will piece all the strips together before I decide. It may end up looking too long and not wide enough. I have added enough brights that the few uglies are hardly noticed. I am rushing through this little quilt because someone( at P and Q )  decided we wanted a small display of our charity work at our coming up Exhibition and we have already distributed all the finished charity quilts..... so guess who is making another one.

You are so industrious! I've been procrastinating about making just one clutch ball and here you have enabled so many to be made! I have an on-again, off-again project of random half square triangles....Yours looks enough to inspire me to finish!

What a lovely place to walk! Those clutch balls will be popular, I'm sure - and I love the half square triangles, so bright and cheerful.

I love the colourful clutch balls. My Mum has made quite a few of them over the years. I should have a day. I hope the rain clears soon. You must be nearly washed away. Good on you for getting in and making an extra charity quilt. It is lovely and bright.
