This was our second last get together for 2013. Christmas is fast approaching. A bigger group of us stitched & chatted this month with a couple of our happy travellers also returning with tales of their trips.
Margaret was churning out these sweet little Suffolk puffs and turning them into Christmas Decorations and has been busy since returning from walking with Lions (yes – REAL LIVE ones!!) in Mauritius, bringing along these little fellows (scottish dogs Marg?)for show & tell I admire how Margaret has her travel thought out in advance and enjoyed hearing about the adventures she has planned for next year already!
Julie was sewing her hexagons together which she did very cleverly without having a photo taken (oops sorry!)
This is my show & tell, a finish from a pattern from my (rather large) pattern collection. Being weary from a big working week, I didn’t pick up a needle at all today, opting instead to listen to the girls chatting whilst browsing the magazines Margaret brought along to share.
NOVEMBER will be our last get together until FEBRUARY 2014 so, with that in mind, I suggested that we have an ugly fat quarter swap challenge and the group agreed. Like to join in?
The idea is simple (just a bit of fun) - Bring along your ugly fat 1/4, swap it with that of another participant and make something using the piece – I’ll be donating A PRIZE for the best use of ugly fabric as judged by the group! How does that sound? If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org No guarantee that I’ll know the answer LOL!
See you all on November 9th. If you’re coming along to join in the fun, bring along a plate of food to share and enjoy our Christmas break-up Lunch with us.
Until next month, happy stitching
