We had a wonderful weekend away at Mt Victoria on the weekend for a family reunion. We normally get together on Boxing day but as each family has grown this has become a huge gathering. It was decided to have a lunch earlier this year and it was mainly for the "older" members of the family. We had a wonderful time at Bev's guesthouse, Closeburn House in Mt Victoria. Here are Aunty Shirley (90), Ma, Pa and Uncle Alan. Aunty Dorothy would have been looking down from heaven and wishing she were there!

Wednesdays are always inspiring as the stitching ladies bring their lovely Show and Tell to share. Great to see Bronwyn and to see these lovely pieces she has finished. Isn't this a beautiful stitchery?
Melly and Me reindeer! She bought the fabric last week and here he is all finished. He looks so cute and cheeky!

I am so pleased to show you My Garden BOM all finished. Even the label is sewn on! I stitched the binding and added the buttons on Friday and am pleased with the result. My quilting is "OK" and will do! I will be able to put it on the finished list.

Lots of photos today as there was so much inspiration at Wednesday night's class. The ladies have been so busy. Just have to stop my ongoing projects and make some lovely Christmas things like these! Margaret had used some delightful fabric to make some gorgeous hand towels.

I have actually finished another block of the Vignette quilt. This is block 4. The stitching has been done for ages but the putting together has been a stumbling block! Blocks 5 and 9 are partly done and I haven't even started last issue's blocks but if I keep stitching it will get done eventually. I now need to do a bit of tidying up at the stitchery seam.

I had the whole of Friday at home this week and it was lovely. I did have lots of things on my list including TOO much housework. That last bit was mostly disregarded and I enjoyed a day of stitching organisation. I decided to get my next blocks organised a bit. I traced the Teahouse ready to fuse.

Here is my Florist all decorated with felt flowers. I ended up "borrowing" some of Kate's ideas and did just daisies, a handle on the trolley and apples on the tree. I just loved your block, Kate! Hope you don't mind.
