Catching Up-Part 1

 A few of us decided to catch up together before xmas and swap some gifts and wish each other a merry xmas ,Saturday was chosen as the day as everyone is busy coming up to xmas,so we decided to meet in ballarat,the top pics the girls were let loose in Spotlight,lol,poor spolight didnt know what hit them,lol.

 Oh my god this lady is funny,Jo had us in stitches and she corrupted poor innocent Cheryl,lol,,we did managed to do a bit of shopping in spotlight as well,lol,i think spotlight was glad to see us go,lol.

 Next we paid a visit to Judy in at Sovereign Needleworks,lol,lots of fun we had in here as well,and we did some shopping.

 Next we took a visit to Eureka Patchwork,lol,i love this pic of Jo stopping the traffic so the car beside us could back out,we did make some more purchases here.

Then we decided it was time for lunch so we went to inexterior cafe for a lovely lunch and the unwrapping of many presents,which i will show you in tomorrow's post,there were lots of amazing gifts swapped,Jo was quite taken with this lovely pink bird,she was getting ideas for one of our swaps next year,lol,Barb and Anne were planning some mischief,lol they were caught,and the cafe had so much lovely food in there it was hard to choose what to order.

Another Workshop

 Maria our FB friend ran a xmas decoration swap and we are not sure what happened with Sue's partner as no one knew who she was,no one knew this lady at all,she was like a phantom,lol,so as Sue had already sent her swap in with me ,so i could hand it over to her partner on Maria's chosen day to swap as Sue was o/s's at the time,thats when we discovered that no one knew this lady at all.
So i asked Sue if she would like to swap with me and the gorgeous decoration on the left was the one Sue had made and i sent to Sue the one on the left which is a Gail Pan freebie on her blog,so it all ended happily

Keryn and i stayed at Cheryl's last night as we are off to another Debbie Busby class in Warracknambeal to have some more fun,i am really enjoying working with wool.

My santa sack swap has been sent off to lovely Sandi.
Its time also for another giveaway,i will give out more details in the next few days.

 For FNSI i got one xmas decoration finished and another one started,to see what everyone else got up to go here and a big thankyou to Wendy for hosting.

 I have enjoyed putting out the xmas decorations this year,having fun remembering the lovely pieces made for me by friends in swaps.

 I had to quickly put a sleeve in the back of my xmas quilt before i could hang it up,its the first time i have had it on display.

I love these two xmas stockings,made for me by friends in xmas swaps,i love my shabby chic stocking Lyn.

I love my two big white santas,this display is in the entry,standing on a lovely runner that Barb made for me.
