More from A Christmas Gathering

As promised, I'm back again with a bit more about Saturday's Christmas Gathering at Campania. As it was October 31st part of the hall was adorned with lots of Halloween quilts and decorations. I think I am right when I say most of them belonged to Deidre from The Quilted Crow.

Although not really into Halloween myself, I did like this smiley cat block.


The next picture is to prove I did actually do some stitching ... I think my effort on the actual day consisted of the bird and the word 'never'! Parts of the design are supposed to be done in chain stitch but mine looked so disgusting I unpicked it and did it again in good old backstitch!

The remaining photos were taken on the stage where The Quilted Crow set up their shop with lots of tempting goodies. Rosalie's new fabric range Grandmother's Flower Garden is very pretty and was very popular.

This is a sample of a quilt designed by Monica Poole.

And finally some items made from the wool felt for which The Quilted Crow is famous. The girls are very clever and dye it all themselves.

Forgot to say yesterday that I met Lisa for the first time on Saturday. She has a really nice blog called Cubby House Crafts. Hope you are feeling better, Lisa.
Next time I'll show what I purchased on the day and a few other things I've been working on this weekend. Back to school tomorrow after two weeks sick leave. Bye for now.
