On Sunday the 27th July it's Ward Conference. We start Relief Society at 1.00 p.m. Don't forget to bring biscuits if you offered to help.  We will share them with some Milo at 4.00.

Lillyanne's Quilt

The quilt for Lillyanne is finally finished. There were a few sisters who helped with making the quilt which Lillyanne had started some time ago and was unable to finish. A special thanks to Cindy Reed who did most of the piecing and working out what needed to be done. I managed to get it quilted and Cindy helped get the binding sewn on last Wednesday when we had our needlework day.  Lillyanne is very pleased to have it to cheer her up as she has been having some health problems of late. 

Needlework group.
There are a few casserole carriers under construction as well as  some quilts. The sisters enjoyed working on their projects as well as friendshipping with each other. Our next needlework day will be the 21st August (Thursday). We will continue to work on the casserole carriers or quilts or whatever else anyone wants to do.

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who helped make supper for the Stake Winter Ball. We had a lovely variety of "wintery" food.

Ward Conference.

This will be held on Sunday the 27th July. We will have MILO SUNDAY on that day so that we can fellowhip with the Stake leaders. We would appreciate some home made biscuits or slices to eat with the Milo. We will give out some assignments this Sunday the 20th. Please tell us if you can help.


Just a reminder that the Sister missionaries are available to do splits with any sister who needs help with visiting teaching.  You and your companion can split with the missionaries and do your visiting in 1/2 the time, or one sister can take both sisters with her to visit if her companion is not available. This would be a great opportunity for you and the sisters you visit to get to know the sisters, especially for less active sisters, or new members. Please see the Sisters at church to arrange a suitable time with them.
Two of the Elders are not getting many tea dates. This may be because Elder Williamson is Gluten intolerant. This should not cause a big problem. It basically means he cannot eat WHEAT. That is anything with flour in it. It should not be too difficult to prepare a meal without flour. A meal of meat and vegetables would be suitable. It just means no flour in gravies or casseroles, you can use cornflour instead. Also dishes with pasta are not suitable. Any other food is ok. Rice is ok. The Elders would really appreciate an invitation  to your place. Please fill out  a night on the missionary meal roster on Sunday.
The missionaries have a baptism planned for Saturday 26th July at 4.00.

Casserole Carrier

I made a practice casserole carrier last week. If you want to make one and you like this fabric it's on sale at the Quilted Crow in Liverpool Street.
You will need 1/2 meter of quilted fabric and 1/2 meter of cotton fabric.(for binding)

I've checked out spotlight and they didn't have any quilted fabric. The piece I got was $25.00 per meter (normally $44). They only have one colour though.
If you can't get any you will have to make your own. You would need 1 mtr of fabric and some wadding (I have plenty of wadding) or 1/2 mtr each of 2 different fabrics.(preferably matching). We can do this on the day (or night)

Scrapbooking on Thursday

Some of us went to Chelsea's home on Thursday.
I turned this

into this.
Thanks Chelsea.

If you would like to come and learn how to do this, the next session will be on Thursday the 14th August. With Chelsea's help anyone can do it.

If anyone has any small seedlings comming up in their gardens that they do not want, contact Fiona.  She is collecting seedlings for a school fair and would appreciate being able to come to your house and collect a few unwanted ones. 


Due to the fact that it is pouring with rain, the walk has been cancelled for today.
See you next fortnight on the 16th.
