Once a month at Lynne's (lilysquilts) the Kitchen Guild meets, we don't do much sewing but we don't half talk about it and everything else under the sun.
The group usually consists of Lynne (lilysquilts), Brioni (flossybossy), Katy (imagingermonkey), Justine (sewjustinesew) and Laura (needlespinsandbakingtins) and me. We always have a perfect day and today was made even more perfect by the addition of two extra members, Amanda (scissorsandthread) and Lucy (charmaboutyou) plus the fact that everyone brought me presents as it was my birthday last week. Did I mention how wonderful these ladies are and how much I love them?! Well they are and I do.
Laura who has got into embroidery big time ever since Aneela Hooey's workshop at the FQ retreat made me this gorgeous hanging in my favourite colours (blue and green) with a cute little bunny as we have two!
Katy made me this mammoth boyfriend pillow! It is gorgeous just
Iike everything she makes and has taken pride of place on my bed, dh won't be too happy!
Brioni gave me goodie bag of pressies in a fab little basket, the cutest ever mug rug, mug, colouring pencils and a luggage tag kit which Freya made up as soon as she got home from school!
Justine made me a fabulous and funky cushion with loads of my fave Melody Miller fabrics, she knew I loved it as she started it at retreat and I was oohing and aahing over it then :) She was also overachiever of the week as she made us all (except katy who obviously wasn't deserving enough) an embroidered hanging to commemorate the FQ retreat.
Amanda got me the most darling thread scissors which I can attach to my machine! I like to imagine that's me as a masked avenger!
Last but not least Lynne made me a signature lilysquilts handbag with of course a Union Jack on the front...
A fab pocket on the back and all made from Mama said Sew - woo hoo!
How is that for an amazing haul of pressies!! I told you they were a talented and lovely bunch! Thank you sooooooooooooo much!
