It's always... Fun, Fun, Fun at the Blue Gum!

 We enjoyed our usual room all on our own... there were 14 of us here today, I know... we aren't all in this photo.

 Jean dug out an old project and managed to get a whole row put together.

 Cath was binding just as I was below.
 This quilt is more than 40 years old, I put these squares together back in 1977, in England,  to hide an ugly couch, I didn't know anything about Patchwork back then so it was just these squares.  When we returned home I turned them into two Duvet Covers... and it was only just this year that I decided they really needed to be quilts... so I will have two single quilts when I finish binding them. 

 Irene was busy knitting away...

 Lynne is stitching a???? 

Aaaahhhh...  a Bird!  That's what she's stitching, hope we see more of this another day.

 This looks good fun, being put together by Ann.

 Heather was binding.

Joy was sewing down this funky Magpie!

 Fiona was quilting... Hey we are a Quilting Group but I think Fiona was the only one actually quilting!!  Yay!

 Liz was stitching a Reindeer... another one to come I suspect!

 Ruth was knitting a hat and she certainly managed to get a lot of work done today that's for sure.

 Becky and Stephanie were knitting the same jumper can you tell who is doing which colour??
 Here they are... Becky in Green and Stephanie in Pink!  I think I need to knit this pattern, I really like it.

 Becky is modeling Marilyn's shawl.

 Check out all the beautiful work that's gone into Stephanie's little bag, just lovely!

.... and talking of Beautiful, I just love this bracelet belonging to Liz, she bought it in Paddington recently... made from old cutlery... what a clever idea!

 This is what Heather was binding, a Christmas Wall hanging for a friend.

 Becky has been to a hand dying course, how lovely are these two.

Lots of lovely happy SCQuilty friends enjoying a day out of the heat and in the air con at the Blue Gum Pub yesterday!

 Emma wearing a lovely shawl she made with Bamboo and Penny.

 Fiona and Stephanie, this is Fiona's first time.

 Heather and Anne concentrating on the Menu!

Marilyn and Beck.

 Lynne and Jill.

Maureen and Pennie.

Busy hands making some fabuloous crafty things.

 Looking forward to seeing what this lovely handwork of Anne's will turn out as.

 Becky enjoyed last weekend at the FibreFest in Singleton, here's a couple of the things she did.
 Becks wonderful 'Floozy'  ??  below has me puzzled as well but it is beautiful and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished cardigan.

 Jill always has some thing interesting and different underway, I wonder how this will turn out..

 Liz's own design made up from crane photos.

Below is a little shawl knitted by Lynne for Liz, I should have grabbed a photo of Liz wearing, yesterday wasn't a day for warm woolies though, it was far too hot!

 Delicate little stitchery is Lynne's latest project.

 Maureen was in a hurry trying to finish this quilt for a nephew.

 I was sewing the seams together in this jumper for DD2, this is the third time I've knitted this multi coloured front... I'm not game to say the last because if I do I'm sure to get another request!

 Ruth was also at the FibreFest last weekend, here are her hand dyed wools.

 I love this twist on the good old Hexagon pattern being made by Stephanie.

Steph also attended the FibreFest last weekend and here are her wools.

Food Glorious Food.

 Lamb Kofta.
 The most popular drink yesterday!

 This dish was called Poke' Bowl.


 Spinach and Feta Pide.

Gambari Piza... I get it in a box because I can't eat it all at once.

 Chicken Caesar Salad above and Salmon Caesar below.

 And... a couple of us enjoyed this Canadian Waffles with Salted Caramel Ice cream, seriously yummy!
