Brisbane Blog Meet and Walnut Shells

Firstly - the "Walnut Shells"

Referring to my last post and the walnut shells...seems there is a difference between crushed walnut shells and pulverised walnut shells... I used the crushed version and it is really quite difficult to get pins into my pincushion - very annoying.  At the Blog meet - Teresa bought hers along - and she had used walnut shells - but hers were crushed, crushed again and crushed a few more times - hers are like sawdust.  Easy to stick the pins in...Do you think my daughter would let me crush my walnut shells in her Thermomix??? (probably not)

The Blog Meet on Sunday - a lovely meetup - thanks to Maree for coordinating - the venue is a great solution and it's all working very well.

A few pictures - though I missed some of the Show & Tell

Firstly, Helen with a gorgeous small quilt - wall hanging...not sure.
You know Helen - she's the quiet one and doesn't like to be in the limelight!!!
and a group shot of the SAL pincushions for June.

More photos - over here at Noela's.
