Our second stitching day

We had another lovely day on Saturday for our second Stitching on the Lake day. The orange bags and balloons were ready for us to party, stitch, chat and enjoy delicious good once again. It is always a delight to catch up with many old friends and also to meet new ones on these days.

 We were very spoilt by our lovely caterer, Lynne, with delicious  morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. There were these cute little bottles of juice to have with lunch.
Lunch was a very yummy lamb salad! Even though it was a very chilly day in Canberra (winter is certainly on its way) the room was warm and it was a great way to spend a cool day.
 Afternoon tea was a celebration with these lovely white chocolate mud cakes and a large beautifully decorated cake as well.

 These ladies, Celia, Elaine, Diane, Lianne, Michelle, Judy, Jane and Margaret, had all been to our very first day in Canberra. Thanks for still coming after all this time.

 Judy has also never missed a day in all the ten years so she kindly cut the cake.
Last week, Beppie, Wendy and Carol cut the cake as they had been at the first day in 2004 as well. 
 I didn't take lots of stitching photos on Saturday but here are just a few. Coralee was busy making the little bag.
 Denise had some lovely show and tell and had made 2 of these Dresden plate decorations from last year.
Thanks to all the ladies who came, especially Rose who came all the way from Melbourne, for sharing these special days with us. We are now getting organised for our retreat, Stitching in the Hills, which is being held on the 1st to the 3rd August. There are still a few places so let Fiona or I know if you are interested.
