Lovely catch up

Some of the Wednesday night girls enjoyed a wonderful catch up last Thursday. Thank you to Margaret for hosting such a beautiful morning tea for us. I wish I had taken pictures of the table and the ladies but I did get some wonderful show and tell pictures to share. Barbara is binding her beautiful Story of My day quilt and had completed another quilt as well.


 Barbara also stitched this beautiful label.
 Lynn has been so busy over the months between meetings! We loved all her beautiful finishes.





 Judy has been busy too. We were especially impressed with the black and white quilt she is making. Just such perfect piecing!


 Margaret has finished lots of lovely quilts and runners. Just beautiful!

 Margaret also made us all a great thread catcher with very apt quilty sayings!
 I have finished one project. This Christmas bag by Anni Downs. It was fun to make.

Visitors

Lovely to see Ma and Deirdre in chilly Canberra last week. We had a lovely time catching up with them over several meals and outings. The grandies enjoyed seeing them too.

A bit of stitching

After all the celebrations and doll making, it has been nice to work on some of my other projects. I managed to finish the lovely zippered bag from the Stitching day last September. It is a great pattern from Anni Downs' new book. It went together well though was a slow process. I also sadly sewed the lining in upside down.....it isn't being undone to repair this!


 I also started this Christmas bag by Anni Downs. I bought the kit last year and am enjoying the lovely wool applique.

 It has been great to see a few of our stitching friends and see what they have been stitching. Paddy made this beautiful pouch for a gift. It is another Anni Downs' pattern.
 Heather has been working on this amazing cloth for a while and it is so beautful. Lovely liberty paper piecing for the petals and absolutely amazing, embroidered centres.


 The crocheted edge is gorgeous too.

Little Miss turns 6

Miss Alice had some lovely celebrations for her 6th birthday. She had a party with her friends on Saturday and they had good fun. Here she is before the party in her new Liberty dress which Mummy made for her.




 The cake was a mermaid themed number 6.
 On Sunday she celebrated with Daddy's side of the family in the morning and then came to us in the afternoon. We enjoyed afternoon tea and she enjoyed opening her gifts. She did love her doll and has named her Adeline.

A doll for the little miss

I haven't had much to share lately as I have been busy making one of the AK Traditions dolls for little Miss Alice who turned 6 on Friday. It has been so much fun making her clothes!! Here she is....








I put her extra outfits in a cute suitcase that I bought at Hobbysew. Here are the gifts before they were wrapped for the birthday girl.
