On Saturday we woke up to a really chilly morning at Nundle. I was so glad that I had visited the Nundle Woollen Mill on the Friday and bought the gloves. They soon warmed up my hands.
We headed off to the hall where we were welcomed by this gorgeous sight.
We were shown the 2 projects for the day.
This is the Clamshell Sewing Keep.
I decided to start on the clamshells and really enjoyed making them. I only got 2 rows done but was very happy with that as I've never done any English paper piecing before.
This is the Secret Treasures Sewing Box.
I'm also hoping to make this soon.
We had a swap where we made a pin cushion from one of Sue Daley's patterns. I made a applecore pin cushion but forgot to take a photo before I wrapped it.
I received this applecore pin cushion from Samantha from Walcha. I really love it.
I won 4th prize in the raffle ( a great soft toy book) and got 2 lucky door prizes. I love the pink backing fabric, exactly what I need for a quilt that I am making at the moment.
We had a really great day.
On the Friday night after dinner Sue held a Trunk Show.
She showed us her amazing quilts. Below are a sample of some of them.
I really love this Wedding Ring quilt.
Some of these quilts are so intricite. It's amazing what you can do with English paper piecing.
I don't know if I could make some of the ones above.
I really liked the 3 small quilts below and think that maybe I should start with these and see how I go.
The Carnival is Over.......
