Hobbysew was buzzing with show and tell again this week. It was almost all Christmas related with the ladies getting very organised and getting things finished! Terrie has finished her beautiful Christmas angel by Annie Smith. We all wanted one!

We had another lovely day of stitching again on Saturday. Here are the bags all ready to go.
Fiona has some pictures of lunch and morning tea on her blog. Thanks to Lynne and Sammy for the wonderful catering.

Over the last few busy weeks, I have still tried to stitch as often as possible. I finished my "The Simple Life" bag last week and am very pleased with the result.Anni Downs is so inspiring, even if it needs an iron!
I wanted so much to stitch the pictures and have asked Anni to please make these gorgeous pictures into stitcheries. They are not too easy to trace and I had to choose my own colours! Looking forward to them being in a book next year perhaps. Here is the lovely nativity stitched and ready to make into "something" Christmassy!
Another cute little Santa came to Thursday's meeting! Well done, Caroline, he looks so good.
Just waiting for Fiona to come so we can go and get set up for Stitching on the Lake tomorrow. So looking forward to seeing everyone and to having another lovely day of stitching (and eating and chatting and fun).

It is so exciting to see what the ladies have been stitching each Wednesday. Gwen had finished her little Santa from Saturday. I just love his bushy beard.

It is always so special to see the Show and tell at the stitching day. Many of the ladies had finished their projects from previous days or come along with gorgeous things they have been working on. I managed to take some photos of just a few of them. This little scissor keeper looked so good.

We had such a lovely day on Saturday with all the ladies at our first Stitching on the lake day. I feel so lucky to be able to do it all again next week. It is always so special to catch up with friends who have been coming for a few years and also to new ladies here for the first time. Fiona and I enjoyed setting the hall up ready for everyone. The bags looked very bright and cheerful and worried me a little....not my sort of Christmas colours really but they really looked good.
