Quilters' Circle - 9th December, 2013

Today was our last meeting of the year, so we had some celebrations. That included yummy goodies for afternoon tea:

And lots of gifts:

On the quilting front, Vireya is participating in Bonnie Hunter's current mystery quilt. She showed us some of the pieces she has made for the first two steps in the mystery:
Today she was marking diagonal lines on squares, with the help of this little triangle she won in a Christmas cracker last year:
It is just the right size!

Glennys showed us these cute stockings she made from flannel fabric Marie gave her at our last meeting:

Marie worked on week 42 of her year quilt:

Marie also showed us this sashiko kit a friend bought for her in Japan:
Those instructions will be tricky to follow! Hopefully she can find some English sashiko instructions somewhere.

Marilyn worked on the binding of this piece she has made as a Kris Kringle gift for a lucky recipient:

And that's the end of 2013. Apparently the house will be shut all through January, so we can't meet again here until 10th February next year. But we may get together elsewhere in January, and if so, we'll post photos, so check back from time to time.

Best wishes for Christmas and New Year to all our readers! See you again in 2014.
