Christmas Party

The Tuesday stitching girls came over last night for our final get together this year.  We had such a lovely night.  First bit of excitement was Paula showing us her finished Floral Bouquet quilt top.


The colours are so pretty against the white background.  We all started this quilt earlier this year and the quilt had to be made out of stash fabric.  Six of us started and six have finished the quilt tops before the end of the year which is fantastic.

Paula has been especially busy in the lead up to Christmas.  She made aprons for all of us from Janelle Wind's pattern in Homespun Vol 12 No 11 - they are absolutely beautiful and each girl's favourite colours were chosen for her apron.

Sharon, Rhonda, Kerryn, Me, Paula and Karen modelling our new aprons.
I made the girls a sewing bag using a simplified version of a new-ish pattern from Natalie Bird.



Can anyone guess who my partner is in our on-line group's Secret Santa?

Beautiful presents from a dear friend.

PS  I love my new mixing bowls, sugar bowl and milk jug.  I also bought the 1 litre jug to use for juice on Christmas Day.  Christmas presents from me to me.
