Almost A Wrap

With the locking of the door behind us, there's only 1 more patchwork day for this year (unless we can squeeze another in somewhere in between all of our super busy schedules). So before I go on about next patchwork day, we better have a look at what was happening last month.

Our dear Margaret was presented with this wall hanging, lovingly put together by members of our group to show our support for her through a difficult and sad time. Stitched with the threads of friendship.

Margaret got busy cutting gorgeous NZ fabrics and by the afternoon was able to play with layouts.

Sandra spent her morning with these cheeky little Santas.

Ruth's machine was stitching away on these lovely baskets of flowers.

Hand stitching was on Di's agenda with her cathedral windows style quilt.

Felting merrily along, Fay was busy growing her felt flower garden.

Some of her finished flowers.

 This amazing felt worked cushion is the handiwork of Di ... so stunning.

More of Di's gorgeous felt flowers.

Sorry girls but I have no memory of whose lovely little basket.

Now trying to jog my memory of what I was working on ?????  on that's right!
It has grown so maybe I should take a newer photo one day.

Are you still with me?  So lets talk about our next Patchwork Day.

Next patchwork day will be on Monday 24 November and will be a celebration of the Christmas kind....and sewing as usual.  So wear your Christmas finery and (only if you wish to) bring a small plate of nibbles to share for morning tea.  Then for lunch we will venture up or down to the Federal Inn.  I say up or down as the location of our next patchwork day is yet to be confirmed ... stay tuned!

UPDATE:  We will hold patchwork in the hall and the Inn is booked.
