Lots of Show and Tell.

Yesterday was the final gathering for the year of my Patchwork and Quilting Group. We had shared fingerfood lunch and lots oF Show and Tell with a Christmas theme. Our rooms have lots of awkward things in the background when trying to take photos so please forgive the quality here.
5 fabric tress. Note the ones on the left are made from stuffed star shapes large to smaller( make easier to stuff than the big trees ) 
Another angle with Rae's lovely Santa.
Later he found a wee friend.You can see her lovely long legs better in this shot. ( helen made her - too cute! ) Ruth and Marie are holding up Anna's flimsy. I just love the colours in it which are outside her comfort zone, but I picked the jelly roll for her so naturally I like it ( thet's a nother story )
Rae's hanging all in gold.

A very bright hanging in Christmas colours.

Sue's lovely original design sunflower quilt for a present for a grand child.
Some different colour combinations here.

Finally a close up of Rae's Santa ( don't you love the beard and glasses? ) with Jill's quilt in the background - each section represents part of a Christmas Carol.
( Sorry ladies if I didn't get photos of everyones efforts. )

Just love the Christmas trees, and the Santa...well done every one.

My new machine is all set up and I am practicing before I get going on the real things. It does every thing it's self including threading it's own needle that has to be a god send...whee!!

WHAT A FUN SHOW & TELL. It is funny to look at all of you in your summer dresses, while I sit here in my sweat-shirt & extra layers under it. The snow & dark outside here, while you have warm summer weather. It's like a fantasy land to me!

Merry Christmas Ali!

Lovely Christmas efforts! I'm struggling here in the final stages of putting all the parts of a clutch ball together! Quite an operation! But it's looking very nice...Thank you for your clear instructions! And Merry Christmas, in case I don't get on here again before then!
