|You might remember that Rose started this Bargello project only last Tuesday... she says that she got totally engrossed with it at home... she stitched another strip set during the day and added a lot more rows... absolutely WOWeeee|

|A Toot Toot Toot for Ann Baker with her 'first festive finish'... one cushion from a set of 6. Ann's very brave... she put zips in the back of her lovely cushions!|
We will soon have enough Christmas trees to have our very own forest! Here's a few photos of the progress so far by the Monday Ladies
|Morning Judith's tree, one of my favourite new green fabrics... and see how the bright yellow fabrics Judith used in the baubles make it look like the lights are on? I see that, especially with my rubbish picture looking really dark at the top! ha ha|
|Afternoon Judith has carefully fussy cut fabrics to get tiny little pictures in the centres of her baubles, she's going to make a second tree just as soon as this one is finished.|

The Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope workshop has to be at the top of the list for fun workshops. It never fails to impress all participants. Take a look at some of the examples from yesterdays ladies' results... Their chosen fabrics and first blocks, simply amazing!
Barbie finished this quilt by embellishing with a couple of tiny-weeny-fiddly-diddly buttons in the flower centres... she says she had no idea the quilt would turn out so big... even though the pattern told her... ha ha ha. Hasn't it turned out lovely?? A free pattern from Moda Bake Shop
Boo! Brenda Barbara finished her Halloween wall hangings just in the very nick of time ... those bats sure look spooky glaring at my camera! The hanging equipment used to attach the little quilts to the lovely wire hanging frame, just for my photo shooting, is very high quality... no expense is spared in My Very Own Classroom!!!
Ann Baker finished her Paper Pieced baubles and declared that she had thoroughly enjoyed making them... she's finishing her tree by adding 24 pockets... like you would for an Advent Calendar! by George that's very clever! She was inspired by the work of the other ladies who had attended the Advent Tree workshops

Chatty Cathy made a sandwich and started quilting the first quarter of her Kaleidoscope project.
Arty Beryl has been working on the blocks for this crazy quilt for many, many months. She made her sandwich (very much a not liked part of quilting for Beryl) the back is pieced too. She's going to quilt this then make borders.
Lacey Anne was sandwich number three with her wonky ballerinas, beautiful on both front and the back. Anne appliquéd the young lady's name on the backing too.
Yes, the post was written in a hurry.... we've got another Stack-n-Whack Kaleidoscope workshop today and I'm running late..... more later

|Longport Lynda, though this was never a race... was the first to complete all of her Paper Pieced baubles from the workshop on Saturday... she made the last one during our meeting and is now able to stitch all the tree parts together.|
|Here's another finished Advent Christmas Tree wall hanging top, once you know how to make them they are very easy to put together, a few of the ladies are actually making several to give away as gifts or raffle prizes.|

|Joan The Shop has returned to her fruity fish quilt... thoguh she still doesn't see why we call it a fruity fish quilt! he he he. It's another that Joan has chosen to make using the apartment quilting method as it's 'A Big Un'|
|Helen decided, for her very own sanity to remain at a normal level, that she needs to make a few bigger blocks, that quarter inch finished, half square triangles block got the better of her in the end. This is a 9" block, one of many to come.|
|Maid Marion is making this Advent calendar wall quilt in between all the technical stuff on her Heirloom quilt... she's at the quilting stage with this one.|
|Glenys popped into My Very Own Quilt Shop to show us her finished Railfence Table Runner... except it's going to be a wall hanging, now that'll bring a smile every time someone walks by it eh!|

|Toot Toot Toot number one... this lady had purchased a Jelly Roll from somewhere, a while ago. My Very Own Quilt Shop just happened to have lovely co-ordinating fabrics to help her finish this fabulous sampler quilt.|
|The very same lady made this beauty using a pattern in a quilting magazine, she has doubled the size though. I have to say this picture doesn't show you any where near how lovely this quilt is! Both of the above quilts will be gifted.|
|Meryl, who came for her first class last week, had finished her table runner centre at home which meant she was not only able to add two borders but she went home with a perfect sandwich too. Next week she can embark on her quilting journey.|
