Last Saturday night was our Sandlyn Christmas party hosted yet again by dear Sandra!
She had done a wonderful job setting up her home to have us all over for dinner.
The evening starts by decorating the Christmas tree and carols.
Then we all move out to the dining room for our yummy dinner.
Sandra cooks roast pork with amazing crackle ( the best bit right!) and turkey. Then we all bring either salad or dessert to share. We have the best time together.
After dinner there is gift giving.
For those who want to participate you make a mini quilt and wrap it.
Everyone gets a number and the parcels are handed out.
Then everyone unwraps to reveal gorgeous mini quilts!!!!
This is the back of red quilt above. Christine quilted it on her long arm for Val!!
These two are from last years exchange and came back for show and tell.
We then had some show and tell from Sandra.
She recently entered two quilt in the Lilydale show and both won prizes! Well done Sandra.
Even the back is stunning.
Love the fabrics in this quilt.
Love this strippy quilt too!
Hope you enjoyed the show and tell.
Hopefully in the next two weeks we will have our new quilt to show you all. We are hoping to release it at the Annual Outer Eastern Fabric Frolic that will start on Jan 18th.

Have a great weekend
