Well it has been yet another busy week, we had a full class on Wednesday making superb Christmas Trees aren't they fun!

This is just some of the ones I was able to get photos of.

The one of our ladies who has been doing the sampler quilt with us came in to get her sashings and borders on - doesn't it start to look fabulous - she was very pleased with it.

 Now I have finished the table runner I was making - I adore this block it is so simply but so effective -
I may give this to Caroline & Nic - if they want it of course!!!   I have been asked to do this as a workshop so we have slotted it in for Saturday 3rd December - so come along if you fancy it!!!!

Today we are making table mats - will take photos later

 We are making a Christmas table runner at Aston Quilters - these are some of the first blocks.  I have managed to get mine put together yesterday and have to say it looks really nice - just got to get wadded and quilted up.

This one is mine and I love the little robins with their letters in their beaks.
 Maureen has fussy cut her snowmen- they look very jolly and as today is cold and frosty makes you wonder if we are in for snow.
They all look so different with the various fabrics and centres.
I cannot wait to see them all put together now - and everyone is enjoying making the block which is good.  

 Well I am busy making my christmas cards at home and thought I would give myself a break and play patience - but poppy had other ideas, she started chasing the card box and the spare cards then decided the whole thing looked much more interesting!!  So I returned to my christmas cards and left her to finish the game.

A busy couple of days, Saturday with the help of Delyth & Catherine and lots of other lovely ladies, we had a small exhibition of quilts at the Makeit Lace Day at St Ives, all the quilts were made by members of the Quilters Guild Region 9  - there was some lovely work and although the show was predominately lace makers, they were well received and admired by all the people that came to the show.  We also ran a tombola to raise funds for Region 9 and we did so well.  An enormous thank you to everyone that kindly donated items for the tombola we couldn't have done it without your support.  An enormous thank to Delyth and Catherine for all their work it was great.
 A selection of the quilts - they were all superb.

 Look at these miniatures aren't they lovely.

Then I was lucky enough to get to Chilford and it was a lovely display there.  I like Chilford it is so easy to get to from Peterborough.  I was forced to spend a little bit of money and treat myself - rude not to have done so.

I had to take this photo for Angela as she adores poppies - it was called Flanders Field and is beautiful.
I loved this quilt - this was just a small section - all the beads - the time and effort that went into it.
So now I have to do some sewing finish some of the quilts that I have not completed yet - I have made one Christmas Present, but I have just started my Christmas Cards and they will keep me out of mischief for a while I think.
