Christmas projects

These christmas projects were a delight to make and something a bit different from the normal christmas things. They are part of the "Gift of the Month" that I joined from "Faeries in My Garden" .

I joined this monthly club in 2009 and the projects just get better each month.

                 Just had to show you each side of the basket, so much embroidery but I love that.

Its great to get a few things done and finished too.

and theres more ....

Its really nice to have a few finishes to show, this table quilt I made some time ago..... a long time ago actually...... I took it on the Tamborine retreat to quilt and I'm happy its finally finished, doesn't look too bad even if I say so myself.

"Simple Stars"

Here is my lovely g/daughter Corinne wearing her quilt, I had this one machine quilted and Corinne was tickled pink with it.

                                                                       " Sparkling Gemstones"

I also had this one quilted at the same time as it has come out a treat too, both quilts are from a book called "Jelly Roll Quilts".

                                                                      "Twin Stars"

Keep watching this space as I have a few more things I need to show and add to my OPAM list.

Slowly catching up with a few bits and bobs

Another block finished for the "Stitch-a-long" its a bit late as it was August's block, I've already started the block for September so hopefully I will be right for this month.

This  is coming along nicely and I'm enjoying these little stitcheries, this is the "My Garden" BOM by Lynette Anderson. If you still want to join in there might be a few places left at Homespun and Beautiful.

Then last but not least here are the piccies I promised of my fantastic raffle prize I won at the Red Hatters Retreat I went to last month. I am going to another retreat next month so I hope to put it to good use then.

                                                       Woohooooo wasn't I lucky ?

A great retreat and a much needed getaway.

I was lucky enough to go on a terrific retreat with my craft friends, it was very timely for me as I really needed the break and to have a lot of laughs with great company.  Here are all my bits and pieces that I took with me .... not sure I really needed all of this but you just never know. We all had the best time and lucky me... I won the raffle..... it is a "Sewezi " portable sewing table but we haven't put it together yet so no piccies at the moment, it was just the pick-me-up I needed so look out retreats here I come table and all.

Dress up night, the theme was red and purple.

If you pop on over to Teresa's and Tereasa's blogs you find lots more beaut piccies.

More craft to come as I've had a few finishes, its so nice to get back into some craft.
