Then we had some "Show and Tell" mainly from CD, who had been mass producing Project Linus quilts and crocheted blankets.
AB had been yarn shopping and has had a visit from relatives living in Australia with presents.
|Lovely yarn, would you need another reason to buy it|
|Purple fabric from Australia|
HT was binding a Thomas quilt for one of her Grandsons.
HW is diligently hand piecing one inch hexagons. A labour of love, that travels well and will be spectacular when finished. We look forward to seeing the progress made each month.
|Progress so far|
AB has nearly finished the crochet blanket. It is not quite square, but we have some ideas about getting it back into shape.
|Notice the manicure - Birthday treat|
CD is working on a Paula Doyle Giant Dahlia, 28 inch version last round is pink.
We had an early chat with EL in Florida, before she went off to a basket weaving class. AB opened her presents.
|AB birthday pressies, tastefully arranged on the new red sofa|
Then it was time for LUNCH, macaroni cheese with salad and garlic bread, summer fruit pavlova to follow.
We managed to do a little more work in the afternoon. I think if we had been sitting on the sofa we might have had a snooze and been a lot less productive. We had to have cake with candles and another cuppa to wash it down.
|Chocolate orange cake|
Well that's it for another month. We eagerly look forward to March, will it be cake free? Probably not!
