Last Sunday was Gordon's Coming Out Party - when I bought my Accuquiilt Go, I set about registering it online and was asked to name my Go - em??oh...G...G...Gordon, that'll do, I thought. I bought Gordon with the intention of making him work hard and perhaps finding a way of through my classes, of hiring him out. So, I rented my usual workshop venue and threw Gordon a wee party, his "coming out" you might say.
In preparation, I cut through many scraps and made up a mini kit party bag for all who attended.
Susan was saying Christmas had come early to her house, it would seem so here too.......last Sunday I was given this cute trio of fat 1/4s from Christelle who is embarking upon her first quilt...
We had some new fabric in the shop recently and I just had to have some.
This selection are a touch more purpley in reality, and are from Stof's Basics range. The picture doesn't do the spots justice - those particular two have a real vintage look to them.
I just had to make up some mini bundles of 10" squares, they have been really popular.
The cat fabric is Japanese, feels like a bit linen-y, and check out the selvedge!!
The next pressies I want to show you are from Wendy.........and led to a making frenzy.
Noodlehead and Hadley (sounds like a posh Gents' outfitters)for these wee coin/change trays and thought they would fit the bill nicely for some gifts...........so these are the boy ones (cos they wouldn't know what to do with them otherwise.)
and the girl versions.............
and so, Nicky, I'll see your 5 zippy pouches, and I'll raise you, 10 coin trays!!
Today I finally got some Christmas stuff out - I realise I have quite a lot that would qualify for Monday Memories but might postpone that for another post. In the meantime here are a couple of future memories.
The first is my machine-embroidered Christmas bunting that I made last year.
and new for this year.........Big Little George!!Helen &Archie
...........there was also a yummy choc bar in the parcel that somehow didn't quite make the photo shoot. Thank you Helen, and Archie (hope you got that biscuit).x
