February Meeting and Show and Tell


Once again we had a lovely visit from Lyn Buttfield, the Fat Quarter Lady.  She has some beautiful fabrics on display, and I am sure we all spent more than we should have!!

 All set up, ready to go
 Lull before the storm!
Some of Lyn's kits on display

Well done Ann!


After the meeting, we had the usual Show and Tell.  I also took a photo of the lovely ladies that helped me knit 125 Anzac poppies for my brother's RSL in Upwey, Melbourne.  As we had a quick trip over for his 70th birthday last weekend, I took the opportunity to take them over with me.  He was gobsmacked, and most appreciative. 

I was a little worried at one point, as he could not find them on the Monday, after imbibing a little too much merriment on Sunday.  But after a frantic search before rubbish day, they were found stored safely in the RSL's Museum.  Phew!!

So a big thank you to the following ladies, Fiona, Ronda, Sonia, Alvis and Jan, and little old me!
