Yes, I am aware that this one is more than a leetle bit late. We had some family trauma during December (don't worry, everyone is ok) and it has taken me a while to get back of track. Also, you don't want to know about my tooth abscess - trust me on that.
So, from officially, the most recalcitrant blogger in cyberspace, I bring you the details of our Christmas extravaganza!
Simone had suggested that, this year we all either make our Kris Kringle gifts, or buy or make up a kit. This was a great idea and we got so much out of seeing our gifts appreciated by their recipients. I was so caught up in it all, that no pictures were taken of us opening our gifts, but it really was a special time. Jeanette, as usual, won the Christmas quiz, but we now know who watches SBS the most, with Maggy winning the "Christmas (or equivalent) in different languages quiz.
This beautiful Christmas brooch was made by Bev. An absolutely brilliant idea, and it looks fabulous
Simone has put this lovely girly quilt together for a friend's daughter. What little girl wouldn't love a quilt like this?
Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday February 2nd. Our new starting time is 10am - we have changed from 9.30am - as most people wander in around 10am or later!
We have some really interesting guest speakers lined up this year, in between plenty of our sit and sew days and our biggest morning tea, to be held in May. Hope to see you there.
