Another great Sunday Stitchers get together....

Our November meeting was as usual a fun day....
The morning tea theme was 
"Amputee Awareness"
the colour for this is green....
Little Carrie (Maria's g/daughter) has been very ill but thankfully she is on the mend now, a very worrying time for her family.....


We all bought a book for Carrie and presented them to Maria......




The girls busy working/chatting....




Show and Tell was a bit light on this month but great just the same.....

This is Tatyana's  last meeting with us as she is moving to Canberra with her family....
We will miss her smiling face....
Good luck with the move Tat....


Cheryl's gorgeous cot quilt....


Inca's huge quilt......


My UFO project....


Maria W's UFO.....


Just a small group this month so not a lot to show....

Last UFO for the year is.....



Not sure I will get it done this time but I will certainly try.....

I was working on Quatro, I'm really enjoying the challenge of brights....
way out of my comfort zone.....


A few nibbles to keep me going.....


Well that's it for another month.....
Christmas party next month......

I was enjoying a cuppa in the morning sun on the last day of retreat.....



We decided to have breakfast together at the
"Warwick Gardens Galore "
before heading home....

As we walked inside this wonderful Christmas display greeted us......





Oh my what a breakfast it was.....
Apple pie waffles....yummmm 


My very naughty shopping....

I may have over done it a little bit this retreat but who cares really.....
I soooo needed it all.....hehehe....






I had such a good time thanks to these girls.....
I did get off to a shaky start as Gav hasn't been very well lately and had a nasty fall the day before I left.....
Smashed a couple of holes in the wall....


But thanks to Heather and Robert for looking after their Dad and making me go.....
Love  you both heaps and yes you were right....
I did need the break....


The end of a great week....
