November meeting

On this beautiful November morning, we had a lovely meeting with eighteen people attending. It felt very quiet, but maybe this is the calm before the storm and everybody was just a little bit too busy. Hopefully we will have a full house at our next meeting, where we will celebrate the Christmas spirit. After a very short discussion we agreed to all bring a small plate for morning tea or lunch and a handmade Christmas decoration to give as a present to one of the crafters. You bring one and will receive one. Sounds like a great plan.

On our show and tell table we had some wonderful jeans bags made by Helen, all recycled and beautified with embroidery and applications.

Mike showed off his woodworking skills with a koala wall hanging, made of different woods. On our next meeting Mike will be setting up shop and hopes to sell some of his beautiful handy work.

Pauline had a large collection of goods, shawls, buckles, amazing jewellery and a jacket, plus a lovely bag. Great job as usual Pauline.

Monique Blomfield quilted a small mug rug and it was overlooked during the show and tell session, soooo sorry Monique!!!

Glenys showed us some of her colourful skeins in different colours and textures, what an artist!!!

And I made a small quilt for a new family member in Scotland with the Australian national treasures on them.

That’s it from me for now, so please get into the Christmas spirit and start crafting these decorations,

Stay safe and healthy
