Sewing and Christmas Lunch With Friends

We had a lovely day yesterday with Sue's original sewing group coming to sew in my studio and have a Christmas lunch get together.
I managed to get the dining room decorated and prepared lunch whilst they were in the studio beavering away - some making Christmas presents and some with their on going quilting that they are trying to get done for a certain deadline(SUE) .
Claudine finished her applique block .I had to show it as it has been made in such unusual colors. Lots of repro fabrics. I like the different background she has gone for - a brownish colouring . I think it is a Kaffe Fassett . I like the mix of old and new.
Claudine also made the little folk art bird for me which I have to say I am thrilled with. As I said at the time It doesn't take a lot to make this girl happy. Just sewing and spending time with nice friends and getting a present to boot.
Thanks ladies I enjoyed the day enormously.
