Sewing day

Here we are in the village hall having a great day - sewing. We just take along what we fancy and have a great time. It's a real luxury to be able to spend the whole day sewing and chatting. A great way to catch up on what we've all been up to and to see what we're all making.
Now I know I had a moan about all the Christmas stuff in the shops but if you're making things for Christmas you really need to crack on with it early - so there was a Christmas theme to some of our sewing. Two of our members were making items for the Christmas Bazaar and I spent some of the day putting a few things together for pressies - obviously I can't show these otherwise some of you will get a preview.
So here are a couple of shots of us hard at work. We're very lucky that one of our members always makes a fantastic cake for us on our Saturdays - and the Apple Cake was fantastic.

Here's the quilt top I started at our sewing retreat. Although it's all together there's something else to be added to give it a lift - I promise I'll show you more when it's done.
I also did some work on my piece for my Bramble Patch class. I'm being a bit cautious about showing it as it's very different to the other stuff I make. When it gets somewhere near to being completed I promise to take a photo.

Hope you're all having a great weekend and getting in some sewing.
