Happy New Year 2017 to all our group members and also to anyone who drops in to share our quilting activities on this blog. Our last meeting was just before Christmas so we took the opportunity to celebrate.
A few of the group were still working on a few final makes for Christmas and Pat B had made this great tree hanging which will definitely be one of my projects for later in the year.
Margie was hand stitching a set of lovely little felt Nativity characters which would be strung into a vertical hanging.
We met up at 10am, our usual time for tea, coffee, mince pies and biccies and swapped cards. We had a fun prize quiz so it was heads down and several attempts to crib answers too.Marg M made this lovely cushion cover and brought it in for show and tellAt lunch time we moved across the road to the Sefton Arms, the local pub, for our Annual Christmas DinnerJosie chose a double stack festive burger which was served in an old fashioned enamel roasting dishbut most of the others chose a traditional Christmas roastThanks to all for the good company and fun that we had and let's hope 2017 brings only good things and happiness to everyone.
