Retreat and stitching

 Four of us went to Mittagong to the Berrima Patchwork retreat. It was a lovely time of some stitching, lots of chatting and enjoying each others company.





We also had a wander to Mittagong and visited this lovely patchwork shop, Thread Botanica, and some lovely gift shops too.


There have been some lovely finishes over the last few weeks. Beth has finished her Santa hanging and it looks so good.
Jayne has been very busy and stitched this gorgeous cross stitch and the delightful pouch below from a kit she bought at Craft Alive recently.


Roni has also put together this gorgeous cushion!

Knitting etc

 I have been obsessed with knitting my cardigan over the last few weeks and have really enjoyed the process. Here it is blocking.

I also popped into the sewing room and made up these little cross stitch projects.

Roni shared this amazing little box with us last Wednesday. Tiny tiny stitches!!!
This little miss turns 10 tomorrow! If you look closely she has pierced ears and a new outfit!
And a few of Mr Jack in Perth. He and mum went on a camp with the other year 3 families and they had a great time caving and climbing!

And the little man in new pyjamas!

This and that

 May is almost gone and today really feels like winter with the rain and chilly weather. Good stitching weather....or knitting. I am having the best time knitting the Timely cardigan. Doesn't look too good in the photo but it is coming together.

Last week we hosted a biggest morning tea on Thursday and raised almost $4000. It was a lovely event with 3 tables laden with goodies.
Some lovely show and tell from Wednesday afternoon. Roni has finished this purse, some cute pears and a cross stitch picture!


Beth showed us this beautiful woven purse she was given as a gift. 
Anita has also finished this lovely stitching bag! A great pattern by Natalie Bird.
This is the golf course recently on a misty morning.

Finally, one mad boy swimming in his new pool even though the water is freezing and the miss with a new haircut.

Craft Show and family

 Last Friday, a few of us headed to Craftalive in Canberra. It was a nice show and Canberra quilters had their quilt show as well. Here are a few of the quilts.










Our little Canberra family, and Alfie too, enjoyed a weekend camping last weekend north of Sydney. They had a lovely time.







Just one picture of the Perth family. Sam having fun with a friend recently.
