Another lovely stitching day

Fiona and I enjoyed our  last stitching day for this year on Saturday. It was a lovely day full of chatting, eating delicious goodies, a bit of shopping and some stitching. The samples were all arranged including a new little dresden plate decoration that I made last week using Anni Downs' lovely Christmas fabric. I will show you a closeup later.
 The tables were all set up ready for the stitchers.
 Terrie set up a lovely stall for Hobbysew and it had lots of beautiful fabrics, patterns and other goodies to tempt the ladies.
 Lynne, our lovely caterer, brought this beautiful Christmas bush up from the coast to decorate the table. I forgot to take pictures of the food again so check our Fiona's blog for some of those.
 Here are some of the ladies busy stitching.

 Brenda had fused on her little houses and I love the fabrics that she has chosen.
 Janet was going very well with her canvas work.
 Shirley had hers already made as they had done this project in the Bay last week.
There were some lovely versions of the Dresden plate decoration. This is Samantha's and she is stitching the little snowflake below to put in the centre.

Paddy has used some of Lynette Anderson's fabric to make her centre. Looks great and I think I might have to make one of those.
 The show and tell on Saturday was amazing! Here are just a few of the wonderful stitched items that I photographed! Will have to do another post for the others. Judith has used some of the projects from earlier in the year to decorated these folder covers. Great idea.

 Jeanette had also made this lovely little owl scissor keep from one of Lynette Anderson's books.
