Stitching day

What a beautiful day!.... Stitching, Food, Friends, Fundraising.
There were over 30 people here for  lunch and a small stitching project all to help raise money for the starlight children's foundation. We raised $465.65 which was fantastic.
Of course I had some wonderful helpers including this one....isn't she sweet!
this was sweet too.....
Busy stitching with a little help from cardy.
Guess how many items in the jar.....have a go, I might send you a suprise if you get it right...Cardy, your not included!!
some prizes from my mini raffle
from Anni Downs, The Simple Life.

zippered bags and a hand towel
Not a raffle prize.... kit from the quilt show...finished and in use! Just Love Anni!
My 'Life is what you make it', from Anni's book 

 Kits ready to stitch... but alas I didn't take any photos of completed projects..It was a felt pincushion.

And lastly.... meet young William, just 9 days old and OH so Cute... I met him for the 1st time today!!
I can feel another baby quilt coming on ....
I'm oh so tired... Its been a Big day!  But thanks to friends like Cardy a very successful one.
