Party Mood for our Christmas Fair

Yep, lots of excitement at the Cottage today, it was 'sign in' day where the gals all bring along their Christmas Fair offerings,
Some even dressed for the occasion in some fantastic slacks, bribes and $$$'s were offered to Marcia to  part with her 'Party Pants' but she couldn't be tempted.
Can't blame her...
Mountains of gorgeous goodies for the sales tables, but managed (thanks Sue) to snaffle some pics of a few of the offerings
There are always bags offered for sale, and this one is a beauty.  Some stunning Japanese fabrics featured on a beautiful soft tote.
Christmas Stockings, well where would we be without Christmas Stockings for the little ones?
Sorry about the appearance of the misshapen foot on one, it had stuffing in it and didn't photograph very well.  It's a lovely stocking, believe me.

A stunning wall hanging featuring circles of lovely Japanese fabrics and straight line quilting.

Small sampling of stuffed toys, fabric book  and neck pillows.  The circles on the pillows are appliqued felt with a heavy thread quilting.

Even though everyone is busy with the Fair, there were two charity quilts for Show and Tell.
Inga completed this mainly pastel string quilt for Najida.

Val created this quilt using Aboriginal designs and fabrics for Laurel House.
Laurel house has opened another office in country Queensland, where most of the clients are of Aboriginal descent. 
The Laurel House folks purchased some fabric for Val's group to get them started, and it's no surprise that Val's quilt is the first one completed.
A closer view of the lovely 'ripples in the pond' quilting.
