I saw on the net that a Boxing Day Sew In was being held here naturally I didn't see it until after lunch today but I'm still going to do a BDSI. A few weeks ago I offered to help a friend make tray cloths for the local hospice. They are three layers thick, no wadding just fabric, but must be washable. This is one of the hospice old worn ones. EG members made 20 Christmas themed ones but they need at least another 20 everyday ones. They are to put on the food trays of those patience too ill to go to the dining room.
One day last month an old friend rang me and said she had a bin bag full of new cotton fabrics and did I want them for patchwork. I thanked her and went to pick them up. This is one of the furnishing fabrics in the stash. All are rather dated patterns I'm afraid but I've made several shopping bags for charity out of them until this is all that is left.
Hope Santa was kind to you all, he brought me a very swish light box, one of the new rotary cutter boards, lots of cutting dies to play with and some lovely warm pj's from dh with hearts on them.
