This year, my online sewing group, The FAB's,gather for FAB-ulous Birthday PAR-ties and sewing! We meet close to each member's birthday online where the birthday FAB opens gifts we have given to her and sew a pattern of her choice. (or sometimes, one is *pardoned* from the group pattern as *she* might have something else *she* needs to sew!)
Last Saturday was MY DAY! :)
From Cher: this wonderful winter wall hanging! I'm going to add a sleeve and hang it in my family room in a new spot for quilts just this size. And it co-ordinates beautifully with the winter wall hanging for my kitchen. Come January~I'll show them both. Cher also sent a ton of other goodies in her box that I didn't take pictures of...a cool tote bag, a baggie full of candy bars to share, cathedral windows notecards, fabric and two shop samples for me to practice my quilting on! Thanks, Cher! It all is wonderful!
Linda: this awesome wall hanging! with all the elements Linda LOVES and I appreciate! (ie: applique!) November 1st it will be hanging in my family room! Linda also sent my some yellow scraps as I mentioned the yellow was running low ?! She also sent a bin full of trail mix with M&M's, nuts and candy corn. yes! candy.corn! soon the trail mix will only have M&M's and the nuts! lol
Norma: are you ready?! this tote bag! made out of FAB purples and the batiks Norma loves. My guild notebooks will be traveling in style now. to the right~a bag of coffee crisp nuggets. talk about yummy! sinful! I need to be careful or my weight will be off the charts at my Doctor's appointment next week! but watch out after...lol
Pam: my glamour shot...not! Pam's gifts were cupcake theme. This adorable apron~check out the ric rac and a cupcake hot pad. Pam also sent some cupcake sprinkles and liners in her package.
The pattern we worked on is the Minnesota Hot Dish, shown here.
