Treasures and Creations.

Hello All, Christmas greetings.
Christmas celebrations are in full swing with a few outings happening. The lead up to Christmas  is fun meeting up with friends that you don't see all the time. It is a lovely time of the year and impossible not to be absorbed in the Christmas feeling.
My  Tuesday quilting group have come  together  with the other day's quilting ladies for the end of year Christmas Party and holiday break till New Year. I think there was around 60 ladies there.
 Everyone enjoyed the 'show and tell' of their quilt journey this year with some good stories about the quilts on show.
 I have some to share.

 The story on this quilt with all the fussy cutting and measuring was that it was  really hard to piece together.
The word nightmare was mentioned !!  Love the little bird and his beak singing a song.

Enjoying the quilt show.

 Love this Christmas runner .The beautiful  embelishments don't all show in the photo . The baubles in the border are all needle turned and it was a couple of years to get finished amongst other projects.

 Must be talking about future projects. We all had a most enjoyable day and lovely Secret Santa gifts were handed around.

It was a inspiring display of quilts ,there is more I will show next time.
Also I will have my granddaughter's quilt finished for Christmas as I am hand sewing the binding now and will post next time.
Hope you all had a great week and are happy and well.
