Quilters Christmas Party
Friday afternoon was the Quilters Christmas party for the girls from the Fat Quarters Friday afternoon class. We had a Secret Santa deliver pressies to Lintzford garden centre where we all met for lunch. You can see that aprons were a popular present this year.
With the credit crunch on our minds Helen and I came dressed to do the washing up instead of paying.
Here is Margaret modelling her apron.
And these are my presents from Santa, Thank you. They are lovely, the decoration is on the tree and the sewing goodies are already in my sewing room.
And this is my favourite Christmas card. Its not often I get a card with my latest project on the front.
Saturday night I was looking after my niece so out came the sewing machine again, this time to make the Matroyshka Angels from Rosalie Quinlan's Gift book. When I went to buy freezer paper and stuffing you could have thought I was going to do some cooking but no they are essential ingredients when making softies.
Next time I think I would do them in brighter fabrics as these muted colours tend to disappear on the Christmas tree.
I must go and wrap some presents now.
Happy Quilting xx
