Louise also found time to pop in to give the ladies that were not at the 'all day' last week their 'challenge'. Lots of laughter and discussion went on but we made sure no swapping. I personally can't wait to see what wonders will arrive back in March when we bring back our finished quilts.
Some ladies did remember to bring in some 'show and tell' items and what a talented group we are.
|He is a winner|
|Lots of hand work|
Talking of handwork, just look at this.....
I am not sure how many quilts Pauline makes each year, but she began her 'show and tell' explaining that this was the only quilt she has been making this year. I hope to see it finished in 2013.
and look at this owl cushion...... sweet!
Bags and more bags ...
|This is where it all started for Sue, a bag made from a Cath Kidson Pattern.|
and Carol has made a set of 'trolly' bags. Think these should go on my 'to do' list for next year.
Lynda wanted to prove that the witch she made was a self portrait .....thinks she done that.
Jo was given a charm pack and someone gave her the challenge to make this, the only problem was Jo had a Charm Pack, and the original quilt was made with a Layer Cake, but with a little help from her friends the numbers came together and the smaller quilt was born.
|Smaller version of Triangle Toss|
This is a favourite of Jo's and I can see why. The Original block was about 4" square and it was part of a miniature quilt .... you've got to be some talented quilter to create a block like this, that small!
Murial has just a few more stitches to add to the binding and it will be ready to wrap for some lucky child this Christmas.
|Lots of fun in this farm yard.|
At the end of the afternoon all were given a Christmas gift from the group, so we will all have something to do on Boxing day when things quieten down after the Christmas festivities.
Thanks to all who make Highampiecemakers a friendly, warm, welcoming group to belong to.
After the Christmas break we will reopen on Monday 7 January 2013, so until then we wish you all a very Happy and Safe Christmas.
