the end of another year

Who can believe that Christmas is in two weeks, and that in three weeks we'll be seeing in the New Year? Of course we always say that, but this year really has gone by so fast!

Fairholme Quilters have enjoyed two end of year parties, and revealed the outcomes of our two Christmas Challenges. Photos of the Monday Group party and Challenge are coming soon. This is what Tuesday nighters got up to. Dina kindly invited us into her home where we had a lovely evening, just dodged some rain and rounded out our year very pleasantly. Thanks Dina - you are very generous.

Of course there was a little chatting .....

And a little eating ......

And then a there was dessert .... an excellent range of goodies, including this ice-cream based version of Eton Mess devised by Lousie that proved VERY popular. She added a crumbled (small) Christmas pudding, broken up Toblerone, a honey comb bar, some dried fruit to softened vanilla ice cream and re-froze it. Louise says just use whatever is at hand - it certainly went down well.

Dina allowed us to poke through her sewing "room" - a combination of two rooms and a good sized landing. This is her bespoke ironing table - everyone wants one! Dina can wave to Marijke in her sewing room, from her own sewing room window!

A few treats were given out - a selection of reindeer ears with flashing lights -very chic.
And Heather very kindly presented me with this Ozzie Ostrich pen to help with the Blog ...... should I tell her that it's done on a computer, not with a pen? Maybe not!
