Just about everyone brought along a plate of food but I didn't think to take a photo of the spread; but believe me there was a stack of food! I ended up having some unexpected visitors this morning so that left me with little time to make something. But I used an old recipe that I used to use when my children were little and I needed something quick and easy to take to playgroup. I'll share the recipe next Monday on the 'Make-Grow- Thrift' feature.
|My contribution to the afternoon tea, still in the bar tin and tied up in a teatowel just like we would bring home our cooking when I did Domestic Science at school|
So we worked on our craft for an hour or so, then we had some raffle draws. There were lots of prizes but today I wasn't in the winners' circle.
|Morag was the first winner; she chose the quilted knee rug to give to her MIL who has just gone into a nursing home|
After the prize draws, our organiser Judie declared that it was afternoon tea time. Then it was back to crafting and chatting until 4. One of my particular friends, Richelle, had come back recently from a quilting tour of the US centred on the Paducah Show, so we wanted to hear of all her adventures.
|Today we also had a birthday to celebrate; Katrina turns 50 tomorrow :-)|
