Sunday Stitchers

Sunday was our first meet up for the year.  We have a fabulous new venue - new building , clean, comfortable, great parking and the air conditioning is super!  Just as well as it was a stinker outside!
Sixteen ladies- sewing, talking, laughing - did get a bit noisy at times.


Some of us are doing a paper bag swap - and we did a Show and Tell of the first row - we have each made our own flower row and now have passed the bag, our row and some fabrics onto the next person to complete a pinwheel row.  Needs to be ready by the end of March - (plenty of time she says to herself).  I didn't get a photo since I was in the "show & tell" but we are not allowed any more sneak peeks or sneak photos until we are ready to give the finished rows back ...thats quite a few months off yet!!!

I had a coffee toast for Fiona who lives too far away for us to be able to see her regularly - maybe we can twist her arm and she will join us some time - or maybe we need to bribe Hubz???  Maybe a new packet of home brew???
Maree has done an excellent job finding this venue -so much better than a shopping centre - especially while renovations are underway and parking is a nightmare.

  4. It was so nice to get together again wasnt it. Surprising amount of work got done, considering all the noisy chatter. I got to be even more motivated to buy for my MR after seeing your blocks.
