The Christmas breakups have started, and last Saturday the Squealers had theirs.  

We met at Karen’s home where her beautiful Christmas Village is all set up ready to delight all, big or small.  But looking at the photos, I think Karen’s village needs a post of its own, so keep an eye out on Sunday.

In the meantime………………there was lots of food for both lunch (we met for lunch, usually it’s afternoon tea)and afternoon teaand in between we did pick up needles and threads/yarns.

Helen is piecing these hexagons to make a bagand she’s also working on her appliqué bordersKaren has a basket of yarnsfor her eclectic crocheted blanketMiss E was hemming a wrap for a friend’s new babeMaree is stitching pieces for her Double Wedding RingI was working on my last pair of socks for the yearAndrea is quiltingand Louise is stitching DresdensThere was a bit of “other” show and tell too, like this bag belonging to Miss EHelen’s Christmas present to herself (I like those ones – you know what you’re getting but it’s what you want!)(our favourite actress and The most beautiful woman E.v.e.r)

Louise had a lovely bag too and we all drooled over her beautiful sewing box, which she carefully carried back from her stay in the UK

Louise brought me back a little treasure too
