Friday night with the big and little girls!

Jae, Nick and Zoe.

Jae and Claire.

Layla, Bonny and Claire,

My cross and heart.

Jae and Zoe's jewellery.

Layla and her beautiful jars.
Last Friday night the KHS girls met up in Stratford at Verdigris Creative Studio to do a night course. Nicky brought her gorgeous girls and Claire brought her little friend Bonny, this was so much fun, Claire and Bonny made resin birds, Nicky's younger two girls Jae and Zoe made jewellery and Layla(hope this spelling is right??) made 2 chalk paint jars and I made a resin heart and cross.  And to finish the night off we went to the TET for dinner and had yummy burgers and chips!!  It was a great night, I am thinking we should do this more often!
Have a great week, Michelle.

A favorite block - Claire's pick I think?

My table runner finished I came home and finished it!!
Yesterday I met up with the KHS for a coffee and cake of course in Stratford, I was so excited, it had been some time since we have been able to meet up!  With work commitments it has proved tough to get us all there!  And Michelle was unable to make it but that didn't stop us from having a lot of laughs!!  And it was not just coffee it ended up becoming lunch as well-boy those girls can talk!!!!    So above is our show and tell, Claire has done, are you sitting down 10 quilt tops this year so far.......she is a machine!!  and Nick is flat out up cycling things like the handbag above for a craft market!  It was so much fun that we decided to do a work shop together on Friday night, so will keep you up dated. Our show and tell was so inspiring and can't wait till we make the next meeting work!!
I should of put a photo of both Claire and my KHS challenge quilts together, it amazes me how the same pattern can look so different when done in different color ways!  Well I better go and feed my lambs, all 15 of them!
Thanks girls for a wonderful day yesterday!!
