Happy days at Carrum Downs for our Christmas party.


   Simone and Jeanette signalling to Father Christmas. Laurel is a tad more discreet.

There were door prizes, and much laughter and fun as the Kris Kringle gifts were chosen.


The picture of the year! No names, no pack drill – eh Ramona and surprise visitor Lynda?


Robyn has turned this Gail Pan stitchery into a lovely cushion. She also showed a Gail Pan blue bag – but, sadly my camera ate the photo. That’s what I get for buying a blue camera!

Another of our BIG surprises (see Marona and I can keep secrets) was the wondrous Julie who ventured all the way from her new home in Wangaratta. This is here fabulous Ducky quilt that she had been working on before she moved. Also are some terrific hand pieced blocks she has made while her machine is packed away – awaiting their new home in Wang. These blocks will make a bed runner.

Here Di shows us her gorgeous summery stash buster quilt – for which she bought most of the fabric! And Wyn has finished her striking “Magic Square: knee rug which she made with subtly variegated wool.

Here is my (Helen’s) effort – a Gail Pan stitchery from her and Ramona’s day in the bucolic Narre Warren East Hall – done in variegated cottage garden thread. And, just in case you missed it – the picture of the year again!!! Lynda – please forgive us and come back next year.

We also brought along Christmas blocks – to be made into a quilt for Very Special Kids – actually there were enough for a couple of quilts. Fran kindly took them home so we look forward to seeing the quilts in the new year.

Thank you to everyone for yet another wonderful year – we look forward to 1994.

your roving reporter,
