The May Meet of The Sunday Stitchers' Group...

Last Sunday this group of crafters met at Ormeau, south of Brisbane, for a day of stitching, knitting, crocheting, talking, laughing, sharing ideas and of course, eating! This was a special day for us as we were also having a Baby Shower for one of our members, Tatyana! 
We had a 'cake'...which had been 'made' by a member's son.

A basket of goodies organised by Maree...


A number of the members had worked on a special gift for Tatyana...a baby quilt! Fabrics had been auditioned months before; the cutting, sewing, assembly had been done in strictest secrecy with Cheryl quilting and binding the quilt ready to present to the mother to be...


To say that Tatyana was surprised and then delighted, would be an understatement...




The day included some Show and Tell of members's projects...here are just a few...


And the group also celebrates members birthdays with everyone buying a fat quarter for those celebrating a birthday in that month. There were 3 of us May 'birthday girls'. 


There I am holding up my basket of fat quarters...absolutely gorgeous fabrics...and quite a few purples....

We use a lovely room in this Community centre...as you can see in the photo below, there is a wall of fold back glass doors which open out onto a lovely open space, with a grassed area beyond...great surroundings ! 

So what did I work on that day?
I started with some stitching but found that a bit of a struggle without my magnifier, so I only did that for a while. I then moved on to some EPP and in the last part of the day I moved on to some knitting. All in all...a perfect day, especially as DH was cooking dinner that night! Lol. ( well he was using some pasta sauce from the freezer that I had prepared earlier in the week!)
