Christmas in July/August at the Quilt Shop.

Alison and Sharon (owners of the Quilt Shop in Eltham) organised a lovely day for the regular Friday morning girls today.  Instead of us being there from 10 am to noon, they made today a Christmas In July event, from 10 am to 3 pm.  (it would have been July, but they ran out of time due to other commitments, so it was August instead).  They made up a dozen different Xmas craft kits for us to choose from a few weeks ago, and when we arrived this morning, our chosen kit was ready for us.  We took our own lunches, but Alison and Sharon provided morning and afternoon teas.  It was a cold rainy day, but inside the Quilt Shop a dozen women had a lovely time, stitching, eating, and laughing.  I don't think they had many other customers this afternoon, so it must have made their day to have us there to talk to!

I chose this project - everything was supplied in a kit, but anyone could do it with an assortment of green and red buttons.  I got mine finished by 3 pm, so I had something to show Ken when he picked me up!
