Marg had planned to spend the night folding letters and stuffing them into envelopes, but it looked like a monstrous task so everybody hopped in and helped! Many hands etc. got the job done pretty quickly and we could all go back to sewing.
The other show and tell was Carol with her raw-edge kitty quilt. Isn't it delightful?!
Jean was beading, Helen came in later, Pauline told us of her trip to Japan, Tracee was stitching (I think, couldn't see past the big box), and Marina was also working on something quilty. Yours truly was beavering away at the Scandinavian Rose - again!
We do hope the SES benefits from our labours and gets a good lot of donations.

Marina had been very busy. She showed us her Christmas table topper, which is an interesting pattern. It requires border fabrics, and the pattern is a larger version of the quilt below. We are hoping Marina will show how to make one of these, they seem very versatile.
This is another of Marina's quilt, the same pattern as the one above, but with smaller prints. The photo doesn't do it justice, it looks very rich in blue and cream and gold. We all loved it.
