November quiltmeeting

Woke up to snow this morning...............a lot of snow. And it have snowed all day. Pretty and white, but this is enough. But they expect more snow this weekend.
Today was the last quiltmeeting for this year. And one of our challenges this season have been a piece of fabric. The ladies that wanted to join the challenge got a 1/4 of a 30 cm fabric. And this piece of fabric was to be included in a projects. Below you can see the projects that was made.
I had made the two pincushions on the chair and the little click lock purse hanging above. And then there was time for show and tell. Enjoy the photos.


A lot of beautiful projects, don't you agree.
When we arrive the quiltmeeting we have to leave a secret santa present in a basket. And at the end of the meeting everyone have to pick a present out of the basket.
I was so lucky today :) I got this lovely stitchery book. Perfect for me :)
I have to show you another book I received in the mail today. It was from the author of the book herself :) She wanted to give me a little surprise because she wanted to use my pincushion tutorial at her quiltgroup and I had said it was ok. I had no idea she would send me this book. I love it!! I have for a long time wanted to try this method on big quilts that are difficult to quilt in one piece in my sewingmachine. So thank you Carolyn, this was a lovely book.
Saying for today:
Life is like a blanket of snow
be careful how you step on it
every step will show

WOW what a talented group of ladies. I love every picture and what can I say about the snow pic. Us Aussies look at pics like that and feel nothing but envy but I'm sure too much of it could drive you bonkers.
