Penno Pub fun!

 We've seen little bits of this quilt being made over the past months but now Glynis has it together!  Just Stunning!  Well deserving of that Halo!

 These two blocks look interesting, I'm looking forward to seeing what Ann does next with them, there are a few hints here.

 Penny's stitching is coming along very nicely.

 Heather has been working on this quilt for a while, I'm loving the colours and the applique and the pattern as well!

 Becky is knitting these very Wow!  socks... just one sock so far though.

 I love these little sheep on this mat being made by Lynne for a friend who has sheep!  Lovely.

 Irene was crocheting a shawl with this beautiful cotton.

 Wow!  This pattern had me absolutely stunned.  Brenda was putting together this 'sort of hexagon' block which when all connected is appliqued onto a larger fabric.  The pattern is one from Bridget Giblin, who by the way was the first person I went to to learn Patchwork and Quilting way back in 1992, she had a lovely little shop in our local shopping centre.    Anyway... I had to go to Bridget's website to see the whole pattern and am thinking...  Do I?  Will I?     Maybe I do and will eh!!  Here's a link to the photo of what will be the finished quilt top...  Mary Mary 



 Michelle was crocheting a blanket for her Daughter who has requested these colours and the pattern... so beautiful!   Michelle just sent me this photo of what she's put together so far... looks fabulous doesn't it.


 I was mucking around doing nothing really, it was so lovely to be able to make it to one of these Pub Quilty gatherings at last I just wanted to chat but I did bring along this Aran Vest I'm knitting in one piece, which I had to give up on because of my chatting then I picked up this very old Hexie to quilt but gave up very quickly!      I might have to buy that Bridget Giblin 'Mary Mary' quilt pattern... what do you think????

Blue Gum Gathering - 3 August 2019

Great day at the Blue Gum where we merrily chatted away and drank coffees and dined on Irene's fabulous Monica's aka Madonna's slice.




It was so good and there was nothing left to take home. Irene said she forgot the sugar but in all fairness it did not need it anyway!


Cath was working on her pieced hexies again.


Emma was on the countdown for this beautiful blanket for her son; only 37 rows to go and then the final edging finish. Emma was 'sporting' this new and beautiful ring she picked up on her way to the Blue Gum.






New member Jane was working on her hand knitted socks made from beautiful Danish wool. Jane is also wearing a popular hand knitted cardigan which is also being made by Stephanie and Fiona.


Stephanie's gorgeous colourway.


Fiona's super cardigan being knitted in cotton.


Irene was about to commence a new triangular shawl https://www.windingroadcrochet.com/first-triangle-shawl-free-crochet/with a beautiful coloured yarn. Irene decided to go home and watch the video tutorial for guidance.



Rita was working on 2 projects. First she completed her first ever knitted square but needed some assistance from Stephanie in how to cast off. Great to know how to start these projects but even better knowing how to finish!


Next Rita proceeded to work on her hexagon project.


Lynne was binding her quilt.


 Joy was hand basting hearts over templates for future use.

Lovely to make it to one of our favourite Pub's today, it's been a while and it's was terrific seeing the magical Handwork on the go...

 Now just what was Selina up today!



 Wow!  What an amazing quilt this going to be Sel!  Very clever calculating the templates for each numbered block... I'm impressed, very impressed... stay tuned everybody!

Liz does the most amazing embroidery doesn't she, this piece has been going for a while now and was left in the cupboard for a while but she's back to work now.

 Lynne  knitting another jumper for Liz, lucky Liz!

Check out the shoes Lynne was wearing today, they are actually the same colour but the camera didn't see that somehow.
 Liz's jumper.
 Lynne was working on this square below for 'Wrapped with Love' for a grandchild to donate.

I'm using up all those little left over scraps of wool and knitting these little Baby Sunshine Dolls for Hornsby Hospital... more in our 'Show and Tell'
 I didn't bring enough wool today so below is all I got done.

 Irene is knitting a jumper for her Grand Dog!

Joy was working on her beautiful reverse applique, looking forward to seeing this finished.

Wow!  I love your hexies Emma, love the fussy cutting!

Heather always has some beautiful and very interesting applique on the go!   Love it.

Robyn's terrific Hexagons, looking great Robyn.

Cath starting to cut out a new project, hope we see some more next time Cath,

Fiona binding, binding, binding her quilt.

Ann was working on this stunning applique.

Love this pattern Steph was knitting, she said it was easy... but??  sounded quite complicated!  I must give it a go myself.
