Like many other sewing groups, our year always finishes with a special day out to celebrate Christmas. So, instead of the usual gathering at one of our homes, on the 3rd Saturday in December we headed north to Castlemaine.
No trip up the highway is complete without a stop at the Malmsbury Bakery for coffee and a little something to go with it.
How glamorous is Di's footwear? A moon boot courtesy of fracture in her fibula, now healing well.
Then on to Threadbear where dear Corliss spoiled us, not only by allowing us the use of her classroom to gather in but by providing a beautiful lunch. Thank you Corliss so much for making our day a special one.
If you think the group looks a little bigger than usual, then you would be correct. Joining us were Anne, Barbara and Bridget. Honorary sisters for the day. We missed you Clare (but know you had a wonderful weekend away with the family).
The day however, was not all fun and frivolity - there was some serious sewing done....
Sue's hexagon quilt is growing.
Deb finished another block from the Caswell Quilt.
...and quite a bit of retail therapy as well.
Although I am not sure if Barb agrees with Kerry's choice of fabric!
To finish off, I would like to wish you all a wonderful and safe Christmas. May your celebrations be full of joy and may 2013 be one of dreams fulfilled and many beautiful quilts.
Thank you for dropping by and reading our blog and for the support you give us throughout the year with your warm and welcome comments.
Until next time,
