Patchwork Day, Snow and a Challenge

Steamy stormy weather makes for an excellent reason to sit in the aircon and sew ... as if you needed an excuse.

A very enjoyable day of sip, chat and sew ... add a few magazines to browse and a little book work for one.

Di and Sandra had their sewing machines humming working on these gorgeous quilts

Narelle was working on a piece of hand embroidery and left early in case of pending storms.

Kerry was busy making sure everything will be in place for the upcoming local Mount Perry Show on April 16.

S. N. O. W 
One can only dream about such coolness on days so humid your every ounce of energy drips away. 
However, our SNOW is a little different ... it's the theme for the Christmas 2016 Gift Swap.  

4 gifts, each one beginning with a different letter from the word 'SNOW' ... to a total of no more than $20 all together. SnOw ... get your thinking caps on ladies and start gathering, creating ... your choice.

Anyone up for a CHALLENGE?
Find just one UFA (Un-Finished-Article) ... come on, surely you have just one ... bring it or a photograph along to your next patchwork day and accept the challenge to completely finish said Article by July ... 2016.

Happy Sewing

Hello 2016

Happy New Year to all our MP Quilters and all quilters, patchworkers, and crafty ladies everywhere.

With January half over already, our group is up and stitching with our first patchwork day already behind us on the 4th. Next day will be this coming Monday the 18th. Check the right sidebar for future dates as we get together every 2nd Monday in "The Studio", Pat Augustine Cultural Centre.

We finished off 2015 with a lovely Christmas Breakup, lunch at the local and a swapping of gifts. Our theme was "Santa" with a gift beginning with each letter ...

Always so many different, clever ideas and lots of fun.  So get your thinking caps on for Christmas 2016 .... S.N.O.W.

May your needles be always sharp and your seams always run straight.
