Treatment is finished!

Today is a red letter day in our family. DH has finished his third round of treatment and fingers crossed that this will be the end of that dreaded cancer. Not even going near what the next step will be, if not!! So, now we start to get ready for our big trip, but I have a lot of catching up to do first - starting with my blog.
Here are some photos of the old church, now the Quilted Crow, where The Gathering was held.


There were 40 participating ladies plus Leanne, Rosalie, Deirdre and Leonie. The setting was wonderful. no draughts and certainly not cold. The company was great at our blogging table and we had a terrific day. Here are a few of the beautiful items on offer - the red bags on the tables contained the patterns.




These 3 items were designed by the Quilted Crow girls, Leonie and Deidre. I loved the reproduction fabric in the table runner. The flower petals were done in wool.


Rosalie's projects


The outside of Leanne's sewing roll

........... and the inside!
Fabrics and colours were just so pretty.


Here are some of the very cute little ornaments that Rosalie will be releasing in a booklet very shortly.

                                    I THINK the booklet is called Petit Noël
This beautiful quilt was hanging in the hall. Hope it wasn't the one that was stolen from there this week!
I hang my head in shame that I haven't taken a photo of what I purchased - but that's for tomorrow along with a peek at the gorgeous birthday presents I received from my friend, Michèle, who lives in eastern France. Counting the days till we meet her and her family next month :)
