Today our numbers are down with travellers absent in far away places - Lucy is in Japan and Robyn B on the Oodnadatta track! Robyn W is at Mogo zoo with grandchildren and others are busy with life.
But the rest of us had a nice time stitching at OFBC.
Here are some of the projects people are working on ....
Our embroiderer Margaret has been busy with this two dimensional cross stitch.
This is the back layer and what you can see.... thru the windows.
And this is the front of the flower shop.
When it's finished it will be mounted in a frame.

Marg is also working a commission quilt.
The teddies are worked in a varigated thread on her embroidery machine.

And these owls, again done on the 'machine' will be part of a pretty baby quilt. She has been busy!

Then it was time for the revelation of last months challenge to make a bag.
Who can resist a bag?
This is Helen's bag in the making ...... very soft and pretty

Stephanie made a bright tote bag for her new great nephew Bailey (not the spotty one - LOL)

Joan - another hand worker extraordinaire made this lovely applique bag with lots of lovely flowers with bees, bugs and caterpillars

This is a cute little bag that Joan brought along for S&T - it was given to her by Nic.

Trish's bag is black white and red - surprise surprise!
Lovely flowers on a black backgound.... nice

Here is Chris' bag.
She is also into the embriodery machine - lovely white ladies on black.
She has also made a carrybag for her son who has been carrying his bible in a plastic bag!
He is studying religion at Moore College in Sydney.
Chris has just upgraded her machine to a bigger model - anyone want to buy her old one?

Of course the 'piece de resistance' - Margaret decorated a plastic bag - very eco friendly!

Rhonda arrived a little later with her lovely yellow bag with frills and flowers!

Here we are stitching - Helen is checking out Rhonda's bag ....

Here is Rhondas first 'Miniature of the Month' - nice eh?
No food pictures this month - Trish did have a nice piece of Citrus Tart but it disappeared before I could get out the camera.

Our thoughts are with Trish as she and her family grieve the loss of her grandson Nathan who was drowned at Easter time.  Our challenge this month is make some bright hearts for Trish to put into a quilt for Nathans's parents.
