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.
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
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?
Here we are stitching - Helen is checking out Rhonda's bag ....
Here is Rhondas first 'Miniature of the Month' - nice eh?
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.
