The LQS had asked their customers for items to exhibit. And they poured in. There were lots.
Friday evening saw some very good friends (and two very handy husbands) turn up to help set the exhibition up. It is not a large building, and maybe the light was not ideal but here are a few pictures for those of that
Doreen's beautiful hand embroidered quilt
Michele's Christmas quilt
Fiona's beautiful appliqué piece. Her second (YES SECOND) quilt
Jo's bright Round Robin Quilt (you can read the story behind this one here)
There were other items on display too
The rocking horse was made by Beverley , a member of Higham Piecemakers . On Monday he will be winging his way over to meet a new arrival in New Zealand
The Candlewick Embroidered rabbit was made by the talented Fiona. Amanda made the Caterpillar and the book, Susannah the Giraffe and Lynda had the little bed made to fit the miniature quilt she had made.
Lots of Christmas cards made at PP
This one was done at a workshop recently
|International fame Nicholas.|
And this fabulous knitted patchwork quilt made by the lovely Gina who can knit faster than I can sew! This was done as a Mystery Block workshop I think at this lovely shop . I may be wrong, but it is still a lovely shop that has classes and groups of knitting ladies.
Bella had entered a couple of quilts. This is her lovely sampler
My VERY good friend Lynda supplied a host of items for the Christmas corner
|the old chap seems to have fallen asleep|
"Once Upon A Thimble"
|I love these bright colours|
|Pauline's patchwork tablecloth|
Lots of lovely people came along to visit this little show, and the comments received were super. I don't know the exact figure, but the Chapel raised in excess of £400 so hopefully those windows will be repaired shortly.
I have done very little sewing this week, pictures of the many hanging sleeves attached are not inspiring.
Son in Law is taking part in the Great North Run today for Anthony Nolan (the UK's Blood Cancer Charity and Bone Marrow Register) . Good Luck Lee!! (glad its not me!!)
I am travelling south a bit for my quota of cuddles with little Miss O .
