Christmas - Pressures, Sales and Luncheon

Popped into Johnno's for some ric-rac to finish a charity quilt and spotted this lovely vibrant range of fabrics. 
Robin told me that she is really feeling the pressure of that other (cheapie) fabric store's sales push and has decided to have a sale of her own, all her beautiful quilting fabrics are going out the door for only $7.99 a mtr. and once they're gone - they're gone!.  Robin will be concentrating on other avenues, so sad to see another local retailer feeling the push of the big buyers.

Was a bit startled to see Kym has sprouted wings!!!, Always knew she was an angel, but wings? really?
And who's lovely quilt is that on the wall? looks like Marie's!

Kym also mentioned she was having a bit of a sale, the called it the BO - - sale, yeah ok, so all I remember is the Bloody Old bit, kinda resonated, you know what I mean?
Anyway, pop in, mention the sale, and Kym will be only too pleased to point out the range, lots of lovely pinks in there too.

The Christmas Luncheon was a real hoot by all accounts, and thanks to Lainey here are some pics for you to relive the fun or for those of us not able to make it to see some of what the gals got up to.

First to breast the bar - so to speak - Marie and Marcia
Marcia was also the M.C. for the day, and from what one hears did an outstanding job.

Sheila was presented with 2 "Gemstones' jelly rolls,  in just her colours.
We thank the Patchwork Angel gals for their discount, very kind.

The meal was delish, as ever, with a choice of 2 mains and 2 desserts.

The tables were beautifully set

with a gift for each gal, little buckets of chockies,

Christmas hats and everything needed to play games.  Well, not all games, no skipping ropes etc but the kind of games quilters play at table.
There was colouring in....
 Sue didn't go outside the lines - nope - not even once, she must have been holding her tongue just right!

Wow, look at the concentration, ('cept Dorothy, she must have finished!)
Yep, eveyone had a great time!
Thanks to those who organised, those who did and of course, those who served up that lovely luncheon.

No thanks required for the discount.The least we could do as after all I was a member of the cottage for more than 12 years and would still be if only I had more time! Always a delight to see the Buderim Craft Cottage members in the shop especially the patchworkers of course.
Would love to come for an official visit sometime soon.
