Show and tell

Christmas in July was a good opportunity to do some show and tell, and the prolific Annette showed us her latest creations, a beautiful table runner and a delightful quilt using gorgeous fabrics. The pattern is very interesting and would suit fabrics with a medium to large pattern, like those we 'hate' to cut into pieces. The quilting was also very beautiful.

Christmas in July

And a very jolly time was had by all! The quilters outdid themselves with yummy food - trifle, ginger slice, cookies, chocolate-dipped shortbread, cheese & fruit, fruitcake.... and a festive table cloth, flickering candles, a dancing Christmas frog (okay... - but he was cute!), and even a Santa Claus ensured the Christmas spirit was high! Beautiful carols playing in the background - one could almost think Christmas was upon us - and not just 5 months away.... The weather certainly is winter-dreary, and spending an evening with a fun group of friends a good way to chase away the winter blues.
