Sunday Stitchers Christmas Party

Last Sunday was our last meeting for the year and we had a great day....loads of fun and a delicious lunch. Everything looked lovely and festive.
Sandi out did her creative self with these wonderful Christmas frames for piccie taking...
We all had a turn along with festive elves Marilyn and Alison.
Sandi also organised some was gathering decos and trim and decorating a Christmas Tree, wrapping a ball all with a time limit....My partners in crime...
Noreen and Teresa....
Our poor wee tree was suffering from heavy star syndrome which gave us all a giggle! Our beautiful tree is the one under the hearts.
We also made a cute little Hot Chocolate ornie....
Really, really spoilt with lots of lovely gifts.
Our Secret Santa was a kind of a challenge. We each popped a favourite fat quarter in a brown paper bag, a wish list could be added and we each drew out a bag.
My lovely Secret Santa was Inca. On my wish list was a 12 inch mini quilt for my bedroom little hanger......I love what Inca made.
It looks so nice on its hanger...
I was making for Cheryl and to say that I was alarmed when I saw her fat quarter is an understatement lol! No wish list and fabric right out of my comfort zone arrrghh!
The fabric....
I decided on a wall hanging and some applique to calm my nerves. I chose a selection of black and white print as the background to highlight the main fabric.

The remainder I used for a border. Thankfully Cheryl was very happy....phew!
Amongst all the excitement we had 2 birthday girls, Noela and Helen.
We finished off with lovely warm Pud and custard....thank you Susan.
Thanks to Alison for all her hard work and Sandi for her creative generosity and Inca for my lovely gift and all the girls for a great year.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xx
