Sunday Stitchers

We had such a great day yesterday at our May get together. Made even more special as it was the day we gave Tatyana her "Baby Shower" gifts. 
Not long to go now before Tatyana becomes a mum and we are all so very happy and excited for her. 
We put together a basket of baby gifts and necessities .....
I made a "nappy cake" and I think Tatyana liked it! Doesn't she look happy and well?
But best of all was this gorgeous quilt for the baby. 
It was a joint effort but I have to mention our lovely member Cheryl, who contributed so much of the fabric and quilted it. 
How gorgeous is the label? 
The "Gossip" girls have finished another block this month. 
However, Cheryl has a note for not finishing her block - and after all the work she did on Tatyana's quilt, nobody could possibly mind! 
Birthday girls this month are Maria, Maree (our tireless leader) and Tatyana (she scored again ha ha!!) 
My birthday fat quarters this month for the girls. 
The table (before the girls got to their birthday baskets!) 
Lots of Show and Tell this month (but, unfortunately,  I didn't get photos of it all!). Susan with one of her gorgeous premmy baby quilts. They are super cute and soft with flannelette on the back. Just lovely. 
Marilyn with her beautiful bag (love that book fabric!!!). This was one of our projects from our Melbourne "Lets Grt Stitched" event. 
Noela with her gorgeous quilt. Lovely Nancy Halvorsten fabrics in this! 
De-Lightful De and her cute little elephant - I have seen so many of these little critters popping up on FB and Blogland lately and they are very cute (and tiny). 
I have started the first block of Rosalie Quinlans "Scandinavian Rose" - yes I have and yes, I am in no hurry to finish it - no pressure,  just enjoying the stitching. I really love it though!!!!
What a fabulous day and another great chance to catch up with everyone and have lots of laughing and fun. 
Thanks girls!!! 
Hope you're having a great day!
Teresa xx
