It was lovely to see so many new faces at our meeting this month, and we hope to see them back again in the future.
Our meetings are always very busy affairs with lots of news and exchanges of ideas and patterns and techniques; there's always something going on - and mostly all at the same time.  I have to admit that it can be a bit overwhelming at times!
Once again, there was masses of "product" brought in. 
This sweet little memory blanket has a tatted cross in the centre.
Claire, on the left, made these, and many more, touchy feely items, among a host of other things.  Very busy girl, our Claire!
Clever Orrawin was handed this small hexagon centrepiece and turned it into a lovely quilt.
These crochet rugs were sent to us from Alisa, Dagmar and Anne.
A fun quilt for a lucky child.
String Star - no waste here!
Fishy I Spy
Plaid Stars
A lovely bouquet!
Beautifully knitted items
There's a lot of love in this quilt!
Crocheted items from the IRT Retirement Village crafty ladies
This large quilt was made and donated by Irene Joyce, from Beerwah.
We are giving it to Lions Tewantin/Noosa to be raffled at a Community Fun Day on October 13th in Gympie Terrace, Noosaville.  The proceeds will help support Wesley House, who provide high care for young people.

From time to time we are asked to make a quilt for a special person, and that's what we've done for Jake, the son of a friend of Sunshine Linus.  Jake loves plaids and so this quilt was created just for him.  It's a biggy! because Jake is an adult and sleeps in a queen size bed.  Judie B made this quilt and we're sure that Jake and his parents are going to be very pleased with it.  Jakes parents will make a donation to Sunshine Linus to show their appreciation and thanks.
Preparations for the Open Day on August 31st are continuing apace, and it looks like the Sales Tables will be groaning.  There will be masses of lovely stuff for sale, and lots of bargains, so be sure not to miss out.

An extra gathering has been scheduled for August 12th.  See you there...............

Some of our Sunshine Linus members have been involved in making Aussie Hero Quilts for our servicemen and women who are serving overseas - particularly in Afghanistan and as Peace Keepers elsewhere around the world. 

This week we received this email from Aussie Hero Quilts administration, who had received an email from Julius, a soldier who receive a quilt that Sunshine Linus contributed to.  Have a look:

Here's what Julius said:
Hey ladies,
I received your amazing quilt. It's great :) Thank you so much for having this service for the soldiers overseas!
Kind regards
What a buzz!
