It was Full House at the Blue Gum Pub yesterday, 33 SCQuilters arrived, the noise level was high, the chat was interesting and inspirational, everybody was busy with handwork, ('cept me) and it was soo lovely to see so many happy faces!

One SCQuilter flew in from Melbourne, she has become a sort of regular, another flew home to the Phillipines today, one drove up from Albion Park Rail others from the foothills of the Blue Mountains, many were a bit closer with only a one hour drive and some of us had enjoyed a 10 minute drive.  We are a big mix of good friends aren't we!   How lucky are we all being able to find like minded friends from all around Australia through the internet and be able to meet monthly for a lovely catch up.  I just love it!!

Some Wonderful Show and Tell to start off the New Year!

I'm afraid I need some help...  I can't remember who made this lovely table runner and I can't see them behind it!

Plus below, I remember wowing over this quilt but I can't remember who made it... help!   AND  I think I've seen it before.....

Jackie made this Spider Man Quilt, actually it's a 'Super Hero' quilt.

I can't believe this but... Becky started and finished these two booties at the Pub yesterday!  If I know Becky, they have probably been felted already, love to see them again next month Becky.

This black cat was being appliqued onto a tea towel made by Jan, fun tea towel eh!

Two lovely little table top quilts made by Emma, just lovely Emma.

Erica is doing a great job on this fun quilt, we see more and more each month.

Anyone for Lunch?  These are amazing looking burgers aren't they! 

I enjoyed the Chicken Skewers which were just delicious, didn't take a photo sorry.

Just check this out... Colleen was showing me Hardanger!  I'd heard of it but never seen it being done and she made it look sooo easy!!!!

I love Jackie's ABC Quilt, lovely lovely little pictures for her Grandson.

And below another beauty from Jackie.

Marianne going all out on the latest Bonnie K Hunter, Allietare Mystery.

Look at this table runner...  Marianne made it for a family member who has a table that seats 24!!  Wow!

Wow!  Another beauty by Muniaba.

Muniaba's Emperors Jewels Quilt is looking very good, I've been following the progress of this quilt on her Blog.

Kathleen was sewing the binding down on this lovely little wall hanging for her friend Sue, who had sewn all this beautiful hand quilting.

Jan is making a Hexie cover for her little sewing bag.

Lovely little scarf being knitted by Rhonda.

I'm loving these big Hexagons of Shirley's, all made from Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

I think I might be getting back to Hexies... I know I swore I never would after finishing my enormous Hexie Quilt but, they do make for easy handwork to take to Pubs or friends homes, don't they!

Here is my Hexie Quilt, the one that's put me off hexagons for the past 3 years!  The top is finished but have I quilted it... No!

I can't remember how many 1/2" Hexies I made, it's in the 1,000's!  11,000 or more I think.
