On Tuesday, the AllSorts rocked up to the quilt shop for our Christmas party and sewing day.And would you be surprised if I said there was food? Well, we were there for lunch! We’d worked out who would bring savoury and who sweet and I think we scored very well! We had decided on a Kris Kringle, each of us to make a pincushion all using the same fabric, and adding to it as we saw fit. Amazingly there were no two the same, and they were all fabulous! Need to report some serious bag envy: Ann had made this wonderful bag in a class (Ann, I forgot to take the name of the teacher – if you read this, can you put it in a comment? thanks!) It’s so professionally made.and Kim had this bag that she picked up at the Quilt Exhibition a couple of months ago. I didn’t see them in the Gift Shop!! Did you, H?? Oi wont wun!!Ann is working on these pieces (I think she’s taking liberties and delving into 17ufosin2017 a month early!)Narelle is MSG’ingas is AmandaKim is working her way through that hexie tin!Mandy has another of her blocks finishedHeather has almost finished her Christmas projectand has a pair of socks finished for her sonand I was doing a little “Saigon“Meredithe x
