First of all we had a workshop to make some scrappy Christmas trees. Vicki and Ann lead on this.
This was an easy and effective technique of sewing strips onto pelmet Vilene.
Some people just went for it and sewed merrily away.
Others needed to plan, and make sure the finished tree was balanced in tones.
It didn't really matter, as all the trees looked gorgeous!
Vicki's husband kindly made all the pots and trunks. Thanks, Ken!
June made the raffle very attractive, as usual. The baubles have chocolate inside them !
The food table was filled with delicious morsels, and provided us with a little sustenance before the rigours of show and tell!
Here is one of the Rocheberie challenge quilts, where participants were given half yards of the same fabric and had to use their imagination.
This is Gaynor's quilt which won her second prize. Well done!
Here is another quilt using these fabrics. They were an amazing collection!
I brought my quilt which was inspired by old quilts in a Sarah Fielke book. I love the setting on this.
Here is a small hanging which Denise made before going on a Christine Porter workshop. Sorry it's a bit dark, it looked lovely.
And finally, here are the doves which are going to be used to decorate a Christmas tree for the Misterton Christmas tree festival in December. I love how they are all subtly different!
Nothing more remains but to wish all readers a Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year! See you in 2018.
