It was that time of month again...when The Bags meet...and man, were the bags Full...all Five Bags! Hence our Woolie Group's name..."The Five Bags Full"!
For our 'adventure' this month, we were off to Nanaimo to the 'Snip and Stitch Quilt Shop' as we heard that all of their Flannels were 25% off...and they didn't disappoint! Bonnie Sullivan's Flannel collections was stroked, caressed and appreciated by all...Then it was off to 'Serge and Sew', followed by the Ladysmith's Bakery for lunch...their cinnamon buns...well let's just say, these Bags were FULL when we were finished! haha
Our Show and Tell happened at the 'Main Street Yarn Shop' right next to the Bakery...where they have a comfy little meeting area (complete with couches and over stuffed chairs) and a sales lady who wanted to see what Wool Applique was all about!
Julie made this adorable bunny pillow...a Kathy Cardiff and Taylor Olvera (The Cottage at Cardiff Farms) design made from their book, "More Cottage Keepsakes"...and this REALLY is a keepsake pillow. CUTE!!
HERE! (I hope this link works...I have never provided a link to FB before...;)
Now Sandy was no slouch this month either...she has FINISHED all nine blocks to the Farmhouse Thread BOM blocks and will be sharing those when her top is all together. It's going to be DDG! And I have already shared Claire's little 'Snowman Quilt' (a Cheri Payne Design) HERE! I have to say, seeing a picture of it and then seeing it in person...there is no comparison. REAL life is so much better!
My sharing...well, you've seen it all...But you haven't seen the LOOT...and really it IS all about the LOOT...haha..
I am all set to make 'My Christmas Best'...an oldie but goody design, by none other than, Cheri Payne! (Thanks again, Anita for the lovely book!)
So that's how we spent our Wednesday...There is nothing like spending time, projects, ideas, inspirations and of course, food, with a wonderful group of BAGS! Love this group of ladies!
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!~P
