There was a great Reunion at the Blue Gum Pub today, I bought Minerva and Maximilian to meet my SCQuilter friends and who should be there as a surprise visitor... a little late but all the way from Scotland!

 Min and Max... all ready for their outing to the Blue Gum!

 And Surprise, Surprise...  it was Scotty!  :-) 

All just hanging about and catching up at the Pub!   See how happy they are to see each other!

(When Stephanie saw my two Jean Greenhowe knitted Clowns she said she had one of these dolls at home so... in a trice Scotty had arrived!   Steph's mum knitted him several years ago, isn't he delightful!) 

 Pennie had lots of Show and Tell today, these two quilts were made from a Layer Cake called Scrumptious, which I received as my KrisKringle last Christmas from my DS2 Gwilym's DMIL, Meg, who was down from Brisbane this month and able to come to the Pub.  These two are going to my DD2 Briony's new home in Canberra.

 Finished at last... I started making up these blocks almost 20 years ago... I was so over them but now they're finished they don't look too bad.  Jan Mullens fabrics called 'Meadowz'.

 Stunning quilt made by Glynis from Bonnie K Hunter's Mystery called 'Orca Bay'.

 Cath had a fantastic time on a Quilt Cruise and here's all the work she managed to get done on that 12 day Cruise...  #1.
#2 from Cath.
#3 from Cath. 
 And... #4 from Cath.

 Lissa has finished this magnificent crochet rug using Noro wools, all she has to do is block it but at the moment she's on a roll to finish off this little beauty below!

Wow!  it is looking wonderful...  Lissa is working hard on finishing today, she was up early this morning and straight onto it!  Go Lissa!!

... But wait... there's more delicious Show and Tell.

 Lynne has finished her little beauty.

 Annie has made a baby blanket for the Glory Box  :-)

 Lyn crochet this beautiful bright bag.

 Meg's passion for Kaffe Fasset Fabrics in a quilt at last!  Meg bought her quilt down from Brisbane for Emma to quilt... Emma also took three of my quilts, she's a busy girl that Emma  :-)

 Meg finished binding this little quilt for a Children's Charity.

 Becky happily modeling Ruth's beautiful shawl.

Emma with a lovely Jelly Roll Quilt.

 And just look at the colours in this fantastic Star Quilt.

 Another beauty by Sel.

 Last month Rita showed us a table runner made for a German workmate of her DH's she liked it so much she made one for herself as well.

Plus this little lovely below.

Sorry... my head just won't remember who's Show and Tell this blue one below is...  now I know... it's Marianne's!  Thanks for the heads up Marianne :-)
I know it's another of Bonnie K Hunters designs, what I don't know is which of BKH's quilts is it?

By now you must be wondering just who was at the Pub today...

 Lovely to see Dianne back, and Irene.

 These two are naughty... but what happens at the Pub stays at the Pub...  Emma and Sel.

 Nice to see Robyn back as well... framed by Glynis and Lyn.

 Marianne and Lynne.

 Meg, from Brisbane, Pennie from Turramurra and Lissa from Newcastle  :-)

Rita, Heather and Cath... your hair looks good Cath :-)

 Liz, Annie and Stephanie.

Marilyn, Ruth and Becky.

Gollygosh we are productive... it was heads down, hands busy and mouths a moving... which means it was another lovely day, thanks everyone!

 Yummy Yummy lovely soft wool being knitted by Annie... and...

Around the corner of the table... Same wool different colours and knitting by Ruth!  Beautiful!

Liz does indeed stitch the most beautiful things, here's her new one.

 Becky's Sashiko growing and growing...

 Just look at these... Glynis is making quilts for her two sons, this is the Mario Brothers game!  So many little squares in these blocks but how fantastic!

 Another wonderful block from Heather, only started but we do get the idea.

 Lissapoo's stars continuing on.

 Lyn's lovely bright rug is well advanced.

 Just look at these little hexies, don't they look wonderful all safely stacked away in this tin, all ready for some project for which Maggie says she hasn't quite decided?

 Marilyn is making these lovely soft toys for Stewart House, so sweet.

 Of all the pictures I take at the Blue Gum this one says it all...  a cup of tea, a pair of scissors, thread, needle and sewing  :-)  Go Marianne!

 Meg finishing off the binding of this little quilt.

 Lovely to see Robyn's fantastic handwork has grown since last time we saw it.

Stephanie was knitting with this Linen and Silk thread, it felt so soft and delicate.  Lovely!
