Handwork, Handwork and much more Handwork!! There were 21 of us at the Pub yesterday, I've got 28 photos and I know I missed some... so how did that happen.

 "NEWS FLASH"  Becky is knitting a tension square!  I have never met anyone who has done this, I've been knitting for 67 years and I've never knitted one of these...  dying to know how it went Becky, please let us know  :-)

 Stephanie's Shawl above and below a very clever little bag for holding your sets of Hexagons!
 Steph's Hexies below.

 Wool, Wool and yet more wool's in this great big bag of Annie's and below Annie's pretty little Crochet squares.

 Robyn usually has something stunning in the handwork line... not today though just Hexie's... but check out her lovely little sewing bag.

 Now... Ann is trying to finish this quilt which is called 'Cushia Purrfect Day Out'  see a finished quilt below... Ann is looking for the patterns for Row Two and Row Three... can anyone help please.

Maureen #1 is making borders here, using all sorts of fabrics from her stash.

 Heather has been busy the last few Pub days making borders for ???  something fantastic I'm sure.

 Look delicious don't they, these threads all in a row!

 $3 this bunting panel cost Rita... what a bargain!  Rita is making this bunting for a small child.

 Emma binding this lovely Tulip Quilt...

Talking of Tulips... Wow!  Emma this ring is just beautiful.

 Jackie's very delicate little Angel is underway.

I know this was made by Liz but it was Lynne who was showing it...  maybe she's stolen it???

 Lovely hand quilting being done by Maureen #2  (sorry I can't remember surnames and we were lucky to enjoy the company of two Maureen's at the Pub yesterday.)   You can see the whole quilt in the Show and Tell photos.

 Jill finishing the binding of a quilt part made by her DD Emma for a child's friend.

 Glynis was finishing off this quilt which is part hand quilted part machine quilted... you will see the whole quilt in the Show and Tell photos.

 Irene's lovely crochet rug is looking very good.

 Liz has a new project...  See it says LIZ, lovely stuff.
 I love this little sewing kit made by Liz, so many fascinating details.

And below another beauty made by Glynis.

 This is a really Zingy quilt Rita has made, she was making a Queen size quilt but the family member she was making it for decided they wanted a lap quilt, Rita has lots of left over blocks so tune in again next month to see what she will come up with.

Below is another quilt made by Rita, we didn't see it yesterday because she gave it to someone... but here's a photo.

 Jill's DD Emma made this quilt for a friend's baby and Jill was just finishing it off...

 Lynne is making several of these laundry bags for her Grandaughter's mates at Duntroon in Canberra.

 Jackie has made these two Alphabet quilts... one for a little boy and one for a little girl... lovely aren't they.
 ... Jackie also made this lovely little quilt for a Grandchild's doll cradle.

And... Cath made this very useful bag for Jackie!!

 This is a better view of 'Ann's Cushia Purrfect Day Out'.

And look what I received yesterday from a very naughty Rita!   How did she know I wonder  :-)
