Several lovely friendly happy yummy and cosy hours were spent at the Blue Gum Pub yesterday, just delightful and once again very inspiring!

 Our day started grey and wet.... but then CAKE arrived!  Delicious macadamia topped gooey lemoney mangoey very yummy cake!  Thanks once again to...   Irene!

 The Gang part one!
 The Gang part two!   You know who we all are by now don't you.

Becky was knitting knitting knitting but she has hidden some very secret knitting she was doing for a Charity... It was very cool and funky so I hope we get to see the finished product sometime soon.

 Would you like to guess who this is?  Well if you can you will receive 10 big brownie points!!!   ******

 Jill was finishing the binding of this lovely little quilt made from fabrics given to her by the daughter of a deceased friend... this is a little memory quilt for the daughter, just beautiful.

 Kathleen is going great guns with these blocks, she bought herself a special foot so she doesn't have to struggle with the curves nor does she have to clip.   Looking good!

 What is Liz up to?  You will have to wait till next time so see the finished project I'm afraid.
 Liz proudly showing a Noro wool shawl Lynne knitted for her, how yummy does it look eh!

 Delightful stitchery by Liz called...  Dang!   Help Liz please... I know it's something to do with ???? no it's not coming.

 Lynne is stitching this little green Key Ring for her grandson who is just about to get his 'L's'!

 Marilyn wasn't able to come today but I did take a photo of this fabulous Hexi quilt two weeks ago... I love those rows in the centre.  Love the colours as well.

 I may be confused here so please excuse me... This strip of patchwork was made by Marilyn then given to Heather to make up a quilt for some Charity...  ?

 Maureeen was quilting this delicate coloured quilt.

 I am pleased to say that I almost finished knitting this sleeve last night, it will be finished tonight then I can start putting the jumper together for my DS2 Gwilym well before winter arrives.

 This block of Penny's  was looking very interesting but then we saw the almost finished block before we left for home...  Wow!!

Double Wow!

 Rita and her Reindeer.
 Rita made this great quilt as requested by her husband.
 I don't think Rita embellished this bag I think she bought it like this.

 Rita makes these Mug Rugs to give to Airline Staff on one of her many flights... they love them and sometimes there are rewards :-)

 Love this little dingle dangle on Robyn's scissors, so cute.

 Our much Lauded Robyn Dixon is onto yet another stunning big bold bright quilt... way to go Robyn and Congratulations once again. 
(Robyn was named a runner-up in Sarah Fielke's Happy Days quilt competition. Have a little look at her beautiful quilt.)

 Ruth is knitting another of these 'Pussy Hats' using this delicious pink wool.

I am amazed... Stephanie is just stitching where she decides to stitch, I asked her what she might stitch in the bottom right hand corner and she said she didn't know yet, she'd decide shortly...  I love this and can't wait to see the finished product.

    Yesterday the question was asked, well one of them anyway... where does the saying 'Cheap at half the price.' mean... well here it is from Wiki.

    "Cheap at half the price" is the original and correct version of the saying. ... Chaucer uses this meaning in, "...greet cheep is holde at litel pris...". That is to say, where there is an abundance, "greet cheep" = great supply of goods, the price is low "..holde at litel price" = is valued at a low price.
