Sunday Stitchers Celebrate Christmas...

We had our Christmas gathering the Sunday before last.

Projects were worked on...



Birthday girls had lots of little parcels containing fat quarters to open...


We had a scrumptious spread of food for lunch and afternoon tea...
Cheryl had brought decorations for the table...

Secret Santa gifts were exchanged...my Secret Santa, Lynda, gave me this magnificent table topper. It was such a lovely surprise; the fabrics are gorgeous and the design is one I've liked for quite a while. Clever Lynda had looked at my Pinterest Board of Sewing ideas, and she guessed rightly that it was a favourite of mine. 


I was Secret Santa to Maree. As well as being a member of Sunday Stitchers, Maree also belongs to K4BN, so when I drew her name earlier this year, I had decided to make something with the knitting theme...yep! the Dillybag...here's Maree with the bag and the other goodies I popped in it.


And of course we had some show and tell, with some beautiful items shown...
Teresa's quilt...

De's

Ladies with the lovely bags they had made...

The Christmas QAL quilts' progress...


All year these ladies have bee doing the 'paper bag' row by row quilt...swapping each month. We finally saw the progress as this was all secret stuff! Lol

We were all spoiled by some of the Sunday Stitchers; these lovely people had extra gifts for each of us!
Gifts from Teresa and Maree J. 

Lovely decorations that I received from Susan, Debbie, De, Helen, Jeanette, Cheryl...

A great day I think you would agree!

Sounds like heaps of fun and everybody's quilts are beautiful. I love the one you received from your secret Santa. I'm intrigued with the little bag of marshmallows - what was written on the card?

Hi Maria, what a lot of beautiful work you ladies have done. Those quilts are quite lovely and certainly something to be jolly proud of. I like the dilly bag you made too.
Enjoy all your happy get-togethers.
