Crafty ladies night

Despite wet and cold weather there were crafty ladies out and about at our first Stitch and Yarn gathering last night.

Lynda was putting on the finishing touches on a quilt she made a few years back for her daughter,

Louise was working on quilt blocks for a block swap, that just happened to belong to the lovely Becky who I finally met in person at SIT in March.
The craft world is a small one isn't it!!

Cath was whipping up the cutest owl hat ever and getting the low down from the other wool-capable ladies Nicole and Lyndel about where to shop for materials.

And MJ was making amazing quilt blocks with complex patterns in delicious colours.

 Lyndel's knitting needle roll had to be seen to be believed!

There was also Judy working on some pattern cutting and crochet, Emma who was doing amazing illustration that I didn't get a pic of but will next time so you can all 'oooh' and 'aaah' like we did.

And I was chatting too much and sewing a little on another A-line skirt.

We had a number of apologies from ladies caught out with illness and work commitments who we will hopefully see next time.

All in all, a very enjoyable evening of chatting and craft.

Maybe we'll see you there next time, you'd be very welcome.
June 6th - put in your diary now, go on!

Sounds fabulous. We have occasional catch ups with sewing girls in SA and they are always fun.

I would love to come to one of your crafty get-togethers. It's a shame you're so far away, it looks like so much fun. Maybe one day.
