Merry Christmas!

Hi Everyone sorry it has been a while but since class finished I have been flat out.
My husband ordered a skip to put rubbish in so I have done out every cupboard in my house, boy did we have some rubbish. My kitchen was the worst, for someone who doesn't cook I seem to have plenty of equipment., as I had no idea what some of it was its all gone.
I also had one of the best days shopping ever, my son and his partner are having a baby next year so yes I will be a grandmother, honestly I just can not stop smiling and shopping for the baby was wonderful.
Of course I have done some Christmas shopping and as all my family are coming for boxing day I have sourced wonderful easy cooking tips from you all, Kathryn your pasta recipe was wonderful.
Today I moved Anna out of uni for the last time, so many books to pack.
Let us have a look at some of our lovely last class-Christmas parties.


Here are the girls from the Saturday class at Post Office Patchwork Glenbrook on our last class for 2011
I will be posting lots of quilts after Christmas but I wanted to get a post done before Christmas day so you could see some of the girls who have shared their wonderful work this year.

A very happy group from Friday class at Timeless Threads Mittagong, just love Vanessa's Kath Kidston sewing basket!

For those of you doing Miss Austen's Garden a range called Papillion by Moda will be in store in January and the blue is perfect for the quilt. These were samples Jackie brought back from the U.S so Blueberries will definitely have the range.

The Saturday group in Mittagong decided to go out for lunch, we walked through this wonderful garden and sat outside in The Sturt Gallery garden.

Hobbysew girls, yummy food, very good cooks.
A very Merry Christmas from all the girls.


I will be sending another email out soon with all the final details for Summer School.


This has been a lovely week I have caught up with lots of friends in the mountains and I am looking forward to Christmas with family which is what the season is all about.
Thank you girls for another fantastic year of stitching and friendship, I hope you all have a really happy Christmas.
I will say goodnight as it is now 11 pm below is the lovely ginger bread house the Monday Glenbrook girls gave to me.


So delicious.

  4. Karen your quilts are always inspiring. Best wishes for 2012. On November 18 I sent an email re purchasing some patterns and joining your correspondence classes for 2012 did you get this or maybe this was treated as spam? My email is carolyn.miller@iinet.net.au so I can forward again or discuss further. Many thanks.....Carolyn
