With being in Level 4 Lockdown, then in Level 3 over the last few weeks we are now at Level 2 finally allowing our Sew Wot get-together to happen. Heather kindly offered to host our morning at her home, as it was roomy enough for us all to spread out. Not only was she a very gracious hostess, but she had made a range of rice bags for charity, and we were encouraged to take one home each. Thanks so much, Heather. As per usual, I took a while to make up my mind, do I want this one, or that one? They all looked so pretty it was hard to choose.
Rice filled hot bags galore
With so much time in lockdown recently everyone had plenty of stitching time, show and tell was full to bursting! Sandra had finished her Mystery quilt, and Helen had made a pretty pink HST quilt.

Sandra had been busy working with squares and rectangles. The first quilt was assembled for the quilt club charity donation, and the next she was making as a gift.
Two more made by Sandra
Heather had made a gorgeous quilt from vintage hankies, shaping them into butterflies, so pretty. I had never seen this design before and would be a wonderful way to use up and display those precious family hankies.

Carol had been busy too. She had brought along a teal coloured quilt top, and an assortment of cute knitted toys. She really is the knitted toy expert in our group and gave Heather a few pointers during our morning together.
Helen had been busy knitting too, and had made quite an assortment of baby beanies to be donated to Wanganui Hospital. Plus a very cozy pair of booties with soft leather soles.
Beanies for premmie babies
Everyone loves Kaffe Fasset fabrics, and Helen had completed this lovely quilt top using his big bold florals. I think this one is going to a family member,.

And what about me? I had taken a bag of donations along, clearing out the final items in the bottom of the carton I had received when my elderly neighbour was moved into a rest home. And I had some donation items to show, more about them later when I send them off.
As Heather had offered her home for Tuesday’s get-together (it should have been at my much smaller house) everyone took along a plate of goodies to share for morning tea. What a feast we had! We never leave these functions hungry! As previously stated, we are sometimes called “The Eat A-Lots”
It was so nice to finally meet up again with the Sew Wot Ladies, and all going well, we will do it all again in two weeks time.
