Stitching with Sue, Anna and Dawn today, again kept us warm on another very chilly day. We began our journey making Bucilla Xmas stockings with Dawn from Sewmuchtoquilt as our teacher. We were so excited to start this new adventure with Dawn at the helm.....hehe. Again I forgot to take photos but the ladies just asked me to post mine until next lesson as we will have lots more done.
Also Dawn finished her beautiful jewellery keep.
We missed Kaye today but look forward to her joining us again for our next stitching day and lessons on Bucilla felt kits with Dawn.
Two large Passacaglia rosettes ready for the final half row, I am still deciding on the colour for the last half row which will connect the rosettes. I think I will wait untill I finish the third large rosette and a couple of the smaller ones.
Enjoying another stitching day with Sue, Anna and Kaye kept us warm while we chattered, reviewing books, movies, social media and current affairs. We missed Dawn again, but she sent along some pics of her work.

Dawn couldn't join us today but sent photos of her work on her Red Robin Pouch and Jewellery Keep project .
I spent part of Friday preparing blocks for a double slice layer cake quilt. I watched "you tube " Missouri Star Quilt Company's" Video http://youtu.be/jxC-0T5lXw4
for instructions. Such a simple block but very effective I think.
Oh I didn't have the full layer cake as I had used some for another project, but I am happy with this size which make a lovely lap quilt. Best of all I am slowly working my way through some of my stash instead of holding on to it for that special pattern which I never seem to find. Now to add a small border and quilt it. Actually it will match my Tuffet that I made using the same fabrics..yay...
To see what the other ladies got up to for Friday night with friends go here thank you Chez for hosting another wonderful night.
We (Dawn Sue and myself ) had a lovely day on Thursday first up Patchwork with Gail B was having a sale and I managed to find a few things to add to my basket. Winnie Pooh panel,plus 2 lovely butterfly cot panels, newsprint fabric as a background, plus some lovely brights. While there I bumped into Annie and was lucky enough to have a little chat with Rosalie Dekker who was there for the day. Next Craftpaks in Heathmont another lovely patchwork shop and then lunch at one of the restaurants. Sorry forgot to take any pics, we were having to much fun.
Also we are very excited because our Bucilla projects arrived so we are looking forward to a sewing day with Dawn who will be guiding us through the process of assembling the kit.
