Lets start this months posts with the... Wonderful, Wonderful... SCQuilters Handwork.

Annie's neat and colourful crochet squares to add to her rug.

 Wool, Glorious Wool...

 Becky was knitting this clever but tricky scarf, the pattern made it difficult for Becky to get her head around the turns for one triangle to the next but she had it all sorted before the end of the day.

 Emma was continuing her seven years work on this bright and bold crochet blanket.

 Secret Women's Business... check this Blog next weekend for the revelations of this absolutely beautiful quilt.

 Jean was just adding a Crochet fringe to this knitted shawl... this shawl was so light and soft you couldn't tell it was in your hand... no weight at all and .... she's making it for a friend, one very lucky friend.
 Jill was making more hexagons to add to her quilt.

 Joy was sewing the felt circles together,  then she will sew them onto the 'R'.

 Kerry was working hard on this beautiful Hexagon Quilt.

 Lissa sewed another Pie!

 Liz busy sewing her 'book' which is so clever...

 Maggie was crocheting this lovely colourful scarf.

 Marianne sewing 'chicken feet'...  we will have to wait to see how they turn out, tune in next month!

 Kerry's first Crochet project.

 Pennie was knitting these little dolls for charity.

 Rita was cutting the edges of these quilts, she then tied knots in the fringe.

 Rita was sewing Stars!

 Selina's sewing this amazing block.

Stephanie's crochet circles are growing in numbers...

Now to the Wonderful, Wonderful... Quilting SCQuilters...

 Pennie telling Annie that it was okay, not to worry...  she was allowed to Crochet at the Southern Cross QUILTERS gathering and... she wouldn't be fined  :-)

Actually made me think, Crochet has really taken off in the last couple of years so I wonder how many were sewing, how many knitting and...  how many were Crocheting at the Pub Saturday last!!

 Jean was sewing, Lissa was sewing and Maggie was crocheting.

 Jill was sewing and Selina was sewing.

 Joy was sewing, Heather was sewing and Robyn was sewing...

 Kerry was sewing and Marilyn was Crocheting...

 Marianne was sewing, I think Erica was knitting and is that Irene Crocheting??

 Pennie and Liz trying to get a good Selfie!!!  it's a lot harder than we thought but we knocked back help from others... we wanted to do it ourselves!  What do you think???    Success or failure??  LOL!!!

 Rita was sewing and Emma was crocheting.

 I had to sneak a secret photo of Selina's hair... what fun!  Don't you love it :-)

Stephanie was crocheting and Becky was knitting.

Okay... so I've done a count of what each of us were doing at the Blue Gum.
Embroidery     = 1
Knitting           = 3
Crochet           = 7
Sewing            = 9
Total                20 

There were 21 of us at the Pub so one person is missing and that's Erica, I have no photographic proof of what handwork she was working on, I know it wasn't Crochet... we have a pack  ;-)  So??? 

It's a Mystery.  Sorry I missed you Erica.

Wonderful, Wonderful Show and Telllll... Seen by all at the Pub!!

 Annie's lovely crochet rug.

 Emma's beautiful quilt that was hung at the Sydney Quilt Show last month.

 Another quilt by Sel.

 Another by Sel, this was hung at the Sydney Quilt Show last month, just look at all that incredible quilting...

 A new one by Selina, this was a class she took  and choose to be bold and beautiful instead of the other students who went calm and quiet.

 Stephanie was in a Swap, this one she made and sent to a lady in the UK and below is the little quilt she received from a lady in the USA.  (I think)
