Merry Christmas in July

We enjoyed a lovely day of sewing, chatting and sharing with a special show and tell followed by a very delicious lunch at the local.

Back here in December, our Christmas Break-up included a gift swap and each gift came with a 12 1/2" block. We then challenged ourselves to make the block up into a project and share the finished item at our Christmas in July. Some got stuck into it and finished before the end of December ... I believe there was some last week sewing to meet the deadline but all projects showed off the blocks beautifully. A couple of girls couldn't make it so we'll have to wait and see the last couple.

After lunch and a stroll back up the hill to the room, it was back to the sewing. Here's a few things that have been finished or in progress.
