February GTG at OFBC

This month we missed Helen who was of to Sydney
 buying a 'Mother of the Groom' outfit
- hope she found something nice.
Rhonda was busy busy doing family stuff.
Cinzia was 'attached' to a certain room at her place and Robyn B decided not share her sore throat with us.
Hope you are both feeling better now!

Margaret gives us a demo ....
A few of us went home with different coloured / textured yarn scarf / necklaces.
Thanks Marg!

Our challenge this month was to finish a UFO of 1/2 square triangles.
Robyn did! Her's is a doll quilt for Mahalia (sp)
Lucy has quilted her bright quilt - not sure of its name.
Chris finished her zebra pillow
Stephanie brought along a UFO - a Judy Hopkins mystery quilt we
did ages ago - Happy Trails to You, alas still a UFO!
And Trish bought some photo's of some of hers!

Everyone was busily working on something.

Here are Lucy's Ikea fruit!
A lovely knitted outfit that Joan has done for Rhonda's latest grandchild.
And Steph models one of her yarn creations - looks good on the black!
Our challenge for next month - finish SOMETHING and bring it along for S&T

January 2013 at OFBC

We enjoyed a friendly GTG at OFBC in January, our first meeting for 2013.

Everyone one is working industriously on their various projects.
Here's some show and tell from Lucy.

Some of the projests - they make a colourful collage.

Can you pick your hands?????

And a few faces too!
I am reminded that we have a challenge for next month.
A finished UFO using 1/2 square triangles.
That will be interesting - I hope.

Our Christmas Party 2012

Once again Robyn was very hospitable and invited the group to have our Christmas
celebration at her lovely home 'on the hill'.
The decorations always amaze me - I love Christmas.
We each had a Christmas snow cone as part of our place setting -
I fotgot to take mine home, perhaps he'll be there next year?

Here's a shot of us all after lunch.
We look pretty satisfied!

We had a 'secret Santa' gift swap of a handmade article.
Here they all are after the draw.
I ended up with the beautiful pink beaded doily/jug cover - thank you Joan!
