Beautiful Baby Quilt

I was absolutely bowled over last night when my Tuesday night Needlework ladies presented me (and David - as grandparents) with a beautiful quilt for our grandchildren to use!   They had secretly worked on the quilt while I was away teaching on the Needlework Cruise recently and it is absolutely beautiful ... here are some of the Tuesday night ladies who contributed to making such a beautiful gift!

Helen (who planted the seed) and an overwhelmed me with the beautiful quilt ...

And our gorgeous new grandson Jed who will be the first grandchild to enjoy this beautiful creation ...

And after all that excitement .... Shirley bought along her finished "My Favourite Things" quilt which she has now finished off ... this is an Anni Downs design and is absolutely gorgeous !  Well done Shirley !

Some very productive ladies in my Needlework group .... Tracey has finished off lots of projects and is well prepared for this coming Christmas ... not one, not two, but three Christmas Buntings, four little Mill Hill beaded Christmas decorations, and some stitched designs as well ... WOW !!!   Well done Tracey !

How beautiful are these gorgeous decorations?

And not to be outdone , Tracey's sister Dale produced lots of finished off pieces from way way back ... I think the oldest UFO in this picture is from 1998 ... you can't rush these things ... and lots of lovely finishes here by Dale ... gorgeous work girls !!
