Sew Wot Tuesday

It was time for another meeting of the Sew Wot ladies, and Mary was our hostess today.  Mary has very green fingers and likes to spend time in her wonderful garden.  The pretty Dutch Irises were looking good.


And Mary had collected a whole range of shoes and boots, painted them blue, added plants, and arranged them beside the garden path.  How cute is that?

The only one with Show and Tell was the hostess herself – the rest of us had nothing finished to share at all.  Mary had completed hand quilting her lovely wall-hanging, and there it was, in pride of place up on the wall.

We worked diligently away on various hand sewing projects, and Helen had the knitting needles clacking.  Then it was just like Christmas - Mary was having a clean out and brought bags of unwanted goodies for us to look through.  And take home, if there was anything that took our fancy.  I claimed some blue knitting wool, just the thing for another kiddies jumper to put away in my Nana box.  Although I’m planning ahead for when my grand-daughters start producing the next generation, I may well be waiting a long time!

We enjoyed a tasty morning tea, plenty of chatting and companionship.  Thanks ladies, it was another lovely morning.
