Our lovely hostess Ros does know how to put on a mid day feast....I forgot to take some photos of dessert, but we had individual servings of pavlova, add your own berries, banana or mango and finish off with a big dollop of cream....and of course after that coffee and chocolates and then a bit later on afternoon tea.....

What a great day we have had today...something special, we had the pleasure of going out to the home of Ros and Paul, http://bloomandblossom.blogspot.com/ and such a beautiful home....we were all made to feel so welcome and very much at home....we arrived to the smell of freshly brewed coffee...tables all set up for us ready to sew..it did take us a while to settle down and start the sewing thing as there were lots of hellos and all the general chit chat........so over the next few postings I will share with you a few of our happy snaps....To Ros, Paul and those three beautiful children of yours, thankyou so very much for a wonderful day...and a big thanks also to Viv.....First off this a quilt that Pat has just finished....made from 1 jelly roll, a charm pack and a metre of fabric...just stunning, you have done a fantastic job Pat.

Dale, is going very well with the bags, she is trying to get a bit in front, as Christmas is coming up and the means a visit from her little boys...4 of her 5 grandsons always come and stay for a week or so after Christmas and this means no time for sewing, and then they are off on Holidays...so there goes January.

I found this very nifty idea from Anna Maria Horner, just in time for a long, hot, Australian summer of swimming. It is a Tote-able Towel and there is a tutorial here. Would make a great Christmas gift for the children in your life.

Pat purchased from the Christian School Craft show held in Dubbo a couple of weeks ago..a "Cottage On The Hill 2007 Challenge" by Kerry Swain.... http://kerryswainscottage.blogspot.com/ which consisted of a 2007 Calender Panel and 6 fat eighths....and this is what she came up with.....Pat this is just stunning.....you have definitely put a new look to "the panel"........
We had a great roll up to our quilting day today, I think we had 12.....everyone was very busy with new projects or completing some old UFO's ( I won't mention any names Carolyn)...but all in all we did have a most enjoyable day.
