After dinner on Saturday night we were given another challenge. We were put into groups of three, asked to choose some fabric from a pile and make as many Breast bags as we could in 90 minutes. These bags are distributed to hospitals and given to women who have had a mastectomy and are sent home with drains in situ for up to 3 months. These bags enable the drain bottles to be carried around inconspicuously. In all, the groups made over 45 bags on the night. The pattern for these bags can be found on the net.
Show and Tell was on Sunday morning. I took lots of photos but I will only show a few. The first one is the quilt top I put together on the camp. I have had the stitcheries done for quite a while so it is nice to finally see it in one piece. I am going to scallop the border so can't wait to get that done. Sorry it is not a great photo but the stitchery is very cute. A Birdhouse design.
|Above and below is the same quilt. Amazing how different it looks in the black, red and white.|
|The above quilt is a Mystery Quilt that the Lismore quilters did for the retreat. I managed to get the pattern from Marilyn (on the right) who organized it. No curved pieces in this, just the way the blocks are put together.|
Just a few more.

Well I think I have given you a photo overload again. Till next time........ Happy Stitching........
