Threadbear. We had a wonderful time and Corliss of Threabear provided wonderful door prizes and kind gifts for attendees as it was the pre Christmas meeting. It is so inspiring to see the fabulous work that everyone does. I was just hand piecing but there is work done by the people who attend that is mind boggling. I didn't take any photos but there was lots of show and tell. Here is my lovely door prize and some of my piecing:
We went up to our place in the country over the weekend and found this:
We were lucky as the house wasn't damaged but there is a very big mess to clean up!! No doubt the local snakes will be lurking in amongst that lot too.............

I am very pleased with the finished outcome so far, but ofcourse, I have yet to add the binding. This is one of my least favourite tasks and I have not cut the bias so it might have to wait a little longer to finally be complete. I went down to show it to AnnMaree at Primitive Patches as this is where I did the class. They are closing down soon and I will miss visiting there very much. I have known AnnMaree about 17 years now and she has always been the most friendly and kind person anyone could want to know. I will miss the shop but mostly I will miss the friends I have made there.

If you go to Desley's blog you can look at the lovely work Desley has done on my Georgetown in Baltimore quilt!! I am, as always, thrilled with her work. It is always exciting to go and collect my quilts from Desley as she makes them sing! She also quilted the apple core quilt for my daughter's car. Bec was thrilled with the finished quilt and now has it over the backseat of her car.
You can also see how comfortable Clancy, our old Cavalier is at our place in the country. He has pride of place on the couch, and he loves to snuggle up in the cushions near the quilt.
