I have just returned HoMe from another sewing retreat.
It was a lot of FuN, with fantastic STimuLation & heaps of InSpiraTion.
These 6 lovely ladies have it all... & they throw in friendship as well.
I am so lucky to be able to spend so much time with like minded woman.
Some of what we got up to over the 3 days...although what happens in Wyee...stays in Wyee... right ladies???

ADDinG BinDinG

to a little MuG RuG... and a Charity Quilt.
The mug rug is my version of a pattern by The Patchsmith blog- HeRe... which I've had for ages.
I simply adapted it to meet my needs.
I will be giving it as a Xmas gift when I've added a bag in matching colours.

The Charity quilt will be handed back to the Novocastrian Quilters Guild at our next meeting.
I didn't make the quilt... I just stitched the binding on by machine & to the back by hand...
then added the label the Guild supplied... EaSY PeaSY.

I have added the MuG RuG to my challenge list for MARCH too.

It's The DaY AfTeR

FNwF...& I have another "Christmas Treats" Jar Cover finished & this time it's in ReD.
It will be a Christmas gift so into the BoX it goes until December.
On this one I added a 1/2 inch finished border around the embroidery center piece...
& also a pretty dotty red BoW that was "on hand" to the cap.
I simply adjusted the original instructions... available HeRe... to suit this border style jar cover.

How did you go last night?. 
I will be over to see what you got up to... sometime over the weekend...

I will add this jar cover as my One Xmas Item a Month too.
Join in over HeRe.
