Charity Sewing and Shopping.

 This is what I bought in Savers today. 2 lovely medium weight cotton sheets green and burnt orange and a cotton quilt cover. These will be turned into dresses for the Dress A Girl Around the World Charity. These are the patterns I will be using,
and this one.
I have cut out 14 dresses this morning so far. the pieces on the side are the optional contrasting insert bands.
I am making an early start on next years charity stuff because I think I will be very busy with the school later on in the year, More on that later!

A.C.D.A. Christmas Party.

 Yesterday we had our last meeting of the year and Christmas Party for A.C.D.A. (Australian Cloth Doll Club Association).
The committee provided the food and my job was to do the decorations and tables. It was a huge success and everyone had a lovely time, I had some lovely feedback for the table decorations too which was nice.
 Every year we have 2 swaps going, People can do both or one if they like. The top shelf is the pin cushion section and the bottom one is the Christmas Tree decoration swap.
 Some of our happy members chatting and catching up before they went to eat.
 Each month we have a Doll of the Month and those winners are then bought in for Doll of the Year. the winner of the Year was Doreen Backway, this is her link to her web page with the winning doll.
These are the pin cushions, always a delight, I forgot to take a picture of the Christmas decoration swap. It was a great party and looking forward to our first meeting in February next year.
