This and that

 Where has April gone? We are now in autumn and even though Anzac Day is over we haven't even put our heater on! Very strange though I am not complaining. Here is a bit of autumn colour for you.

I was recently woken by a loud noise and it was this balloon just over our house!

I have been slowly using up my perle 8 threads to crochet this scarf. Good fun. Thanks Adrienne, for the great crochet pattern.

I have been also enjoying some slow stitching on these cross stitch patterns by Plum Street Samplers.

My friend Penny is so lucky. She is in France and managed to get to Nantes for the quilt show there. We were planning to go in 2020 but Covid spoilt many plans that year. Here are a few of her photos of the day.

I will finish the month off with a picture of the little miss. She is very excited today as her family has a puppy named Max.

Lunch and High tea

 It was a lovely social week last week. The Thursday group had their regular lunch at the end of the term and we celebrated Linley's 80th birthday. She is amazing for 80!

On Saturday, I was very spoilt with High tea at the Hyatt for my birthday. It is always so special to spend the afternoon eating, drinking and chatting!

We minded the boys on Tuesday and Pa took the big boys fishing while Jack went to a Circus holiday program. No fish were caught but it was a nice day for it.

Lovely projects

 It is ways so inspiring to see what the Wednesday ladies are stitching. Jayne has finished her amazing needlecase using the delightful stitcheries she has been working on. It is such a useful needlecase.

Rini has bound her gorgeous hand pieced quilt. It looks so beautiful. We lovely the colours used.
Roni has also been making these great easter eggs using a pattern by Anni Downs. The cake behind was made by Paddy and was delicious. We had an early celebration for Beth's special birthday.

We gave Beth her gift. We gave her a gift voucher for her favourite shop, Makerie, and some beautiful candles. I made this purse for Beth to keep her gift voucher or treasures in.
