My monthly stitching group, the Friday Stitchers, had an end-of-year get together at my all time favourite cafe, Fig Tree on Friday. As usual, there were plenty of great food choices, and I decided to move away from my usual corn fritters and bacon and try something different. The mushroom and blue cheese filo parcel was great, followed by a slice of Louise cake and a large latte. And, as is the tradition in our household, I couldn’t leave without buying two Eccles cakes to take home for our supper. Several of the other ladies followed my example and took home a little something for their husbands too.
Fig Tree Cafe is the only cafe in the Wellington region that has a unique setting within a charming restored chapel. The dining tables are lovely vintage timber from yesteryear, as are the fine china tea cups, saucers and plates.
I have been meeting with the Friday Stitching group for several years now, but with us moving out of the area it was time to say goodbye to the ladies. No doubt we will cross paths from time to time at quilt shows. So farewell ladies, and thank you so much for your companionship at our monthly meetings of the Friday Stitchers. I’m hoping that I can find another like minded group in the Levin area to fit into. If any local ladies can help, please let me know.
