I made a few more Hangabouts, in fact more than I can show here as a couple are for gifts. At last I have used the "Faces" fabric I bought in Germany last August as DH wanted one for
HIS the zappers so he chose Marilyn with Charlie Chaplin on the other side. The middle one is Clarice Cliff Art Deco style. I have so many panels of fabric that it takes me so long to choose which ones to sew up to suit the recipient.

If you'd like to make some of these for yourself nip back and see the photo instructions I posted last 28th December.
Yesterday we had a day full of fun at Vicky Stampers Christmas Party and those who couldn't attend really missed a great time.
We had a craft challenge, set by Neet, to make 10 cards in an hour and some managed to complete all 10. I gabbed so much I only managed 6 but it was worthwhile fun.
After an excellent lunch of M&S buffet food we had some seasonal quizzes then Neet provided "Pass the Parcel" with gifts and forfeits. We all agreed that we haven't laughed so much for ages BUT I must admit I will have to settle with Neet next time we meet for making me have to get down on my hands and knees for my forfeit and bark "Jingle Bells" like a dog!!!! The photographic evidence is thankfully only on Vicky Stampers Group so I am pleased it is just for members viewing! At least I won a lovely set of brads for doing it!
Lorraine's cards and I think those gnomes are still after me!
Lynn came with a selection of more than a dozen Christmas Hats which she kept changing to suit each tune on the CD......Frosty, Rudolph, etc., ....
It was a really good day to set us all up in the mood for Christmas. Vicky Stampers is a wonderful group of crafters who get along so well and have so much fun.
This photo was taken late on so some of the group, who travel from far and wide, had already headed home.
My friend Mo, (wearing lilac in the front row) gave me permission to show this beautiful beaded angel which she painstakingly made recently. It took her a couple of days to complete!
The angel is a real keepsake treasure and I hope she has powers to watch over you and your family Mo!
Just a reminder that Rudolph and his sleigh will be arriving in a day or two... the last of my paper cut freebie templates! So keep popping in!
