FNSI & GEELONG QUILT IN

I had a great night sewing last night for FNSI.

I GOT A FEW PROJECTS FINISHED...
Here was the main project ready for a gift I needed for the GEELONG QUILT IN...
It will be included in my OPAM & BINDING BLITZ.

This is what I made for my Gail Pan design gift. It was a COTTAGE GARDEN THREAD HOLDER.
Filled with a few goodies. Barb was the winner of my gift. Funnily enough this was the same gift she had stitched. She has made 2 of them but didn't have one for herself. I am hopeful that she likes my one. Now Barb can store her own threads.

This is what I worked on today. It may become a pocket or patch on a bag. I'm not sure yet. We had to sit still for a while today so we managed to get quite a bit done......


Here is the group really concentrating and working hard... Annie and I getting into trouble. Everyone's GAIL PAN gifts. What a great selection.


I think we wore poor Shez out. We caught Shez having a power nap. I'm sure she loved her gift though.

Here is Anne, o'Faigh, me & Marg with the gifts they received... Smiles all around.


Here is Barb receiving her gift. It sure looks like she was happy.

What a great group photo. Everyone looks like they were having so much fun. 
Christine, Sue & Kim with their beautiful gifts.


Well, it was fun to catch up with all the girls.
I did have a great day.
Mmmmm, NOT SURE HOW I DID NOT MANAGE TO GET A PHOTO OF MEL....
Only in the group photo...

  18. I love my cottage garden thread holder and have decided to use it specifically for Christmas stitching so I'm slowly filling it up with lovely red, green, gold colour ways in these threads and am having a ball. Love it!!! :) Barb.
