Well last Saturday finally came around. Shez and I and my friend Sandy had been counting down the days to the FignBerry Soiree. This time Lisa had organised Melissa from "One Day in May" to be the guest designer/ Spoilt we were, with six most amazing patterns - all Christmas themed (my favourite) -
On the way we had breakfast with Carol and her lovely family, and it just so happens Carol was my partner in the Friends Having Fun Christmas swap, so I was able to hand deliver her 12 gifts.
This beautiful wallhanging was one of our projects from Lisa.
And the other two projects from Lisa were this cute xmas stocking which I started stitching on the day and the gorgeous felt mat.
And this beautiful dove was a project from Melissa - she suggested either a candle could go in the centre or a mason jar with candy canes.
This project from Melissa was also adorable. She uses a lovely technique for double sided flowers and holly leaves which gives a great 3D effect.
My stitching companions - not sure what Shez was making a point about here lol.
And we finally got to meet Dawn, as I follow her blog, so that was just lovely
Just had to show you Lisa's new quilt "Penguin Parade". Well it was such an amazing day. Can't wait for the next one. Cheryl
