A Day to Remember

Ann Purdy spent a day in the spring at Exbury Gardens with her sister who has Altzheimers. While Ann was taking photos of the flowers around them her sister got into conversation with somebody about the fish in the pond. This was the longest conversation her sister had had in a long time. Ann felt this was a special moment so used her photos to create a scene for a note book cover.

Margaret Morris's grandaughter asked her to make her a cushion with a beach scene and it had to include several things. This is the result and Margaret has added a few personal touches: The number on the beach hut is her grandaughters house number, the name on the boat is the family dogs name and she has used some fabric from her grandaughters clothes.

A very memorable present.

P1040290Waterside Quilters Charity for 2016 was The Honeypot Children's Charity who provide respite care for children who themselves are carers.

It was decided that for the first time we would hold an exhibition and auction the quilts.

As the charity was called Honeypot a theme of 'Honey' was decided and the quilts should measure 12" x 12".

St Andrews Church Coffee Shop kindly let us display the quilts and it was set up as a 'Silent Auction'. It proved very popular with visitors and coffee shop customers. There was also a sales table of items made by members. Together with other small fundraising events throughout the year Waterside Quilters raised a total of £745 which was donated to Honeypot Children's Charity.

Well done ladies.
