SoMe NeW FrieNdS

This is "All About Sewing" in Charmhaven NSW (Australia), where members of the Central Coast Modern Quilt Guild meet.




These lovely and friendly ladies work there... and made me feel very WeLcoMe.








During the meeting we had a cuppa...
ate some "birthday" cake...








sampled some delicious "rocklea road" that a member made...
Completed the business end of the get together... then...
I actually did some sewing on this...


It's a flannel quilt in greys and reds... and is a W.I.P.

I also had an email saying that my Once A Season Swap partner had received her package during the week,  so I thought I would show what I sent over the ocean to Michell in New Zealand. As this was a "winter" theme I thought Michell might need to stay warm...
Tea Cosy with matching Pot Mat
And a lovely warm woollen pink scarf for herself...
with a few other little items.
Michell said she was HaPPy... so that makes me HaPPy too!

I'm glad you enjoyed the guild and that you got some sewing done.....I love seeing what everyone sends each other in these swaps. I was in a swap with someone in France a few years ago. She sent me two glass es French words on them. We often use them for juice in the morning...then there is the lovely candle mat I got at Christmas...and the thimble and pencil from Canada along with cute pillowcases.
Blessings,
Mama Bear
