Oh Happy Day!

On Saturday  I tagged along with Helen to a Christmas Gathering organised by Lillian of Esmes
Helen was tutor for the day and had some lovely projects to share.






and Lillian did too
I even ran into some friends, Val (no blog) 

and Kathy from Sew Happy House 
It was a lovely surprise to see them both there and getting to spend the day stitching and chatting with them.
I also met Edwina, no picture but there's one on Kathy's blog, she's a lovely lady too but then all stitchers are lovely!

Also on display was Esme's finished Quilt Aid, simply gorgeous. The photos don't show this quilt any justice but believe me the Ruby fabrics were perfect for this years them "Whimsy and Wonder"

Check out the Quilt Aid website for more info and designs by the other shops in Australia, UK & the US!
