Sew Wot Tuesday rolled around again, and it was my turn to be the hostess, a slightly smaller group with a couple of our ladies away. There was a birthday to celebrate, and Mary had fun opening all her lovely little squishy parcels, and she was given a pretty little gerbera too.
Happy Birthday to Mary
Mary had recently returned from an Australian holiday, catching up with family, and came home with a couple of lovely goodies. Such as this pretty little tablecloth purchased in an Op Shop. She just had to finish stitching two of the ballerinas, added the lacy edge, and then, another lovely vintage cloth for her collection.

This beautiful crocheted cloth was hand made in Italy, and when Mary’s sister purchased it she knew it would be just the thing for Mary’s birthday. It is so lovely with stunning workmanship, that we all would have happily spirited it away for ourselves.

There was a little woolly scarf knitting going on, with both Heather B and Moira sitting there with clacking knitting needles. Heather’s scarf was knitting up in colourful chevrons, and Moira’s was a pretty dusty blue. Who will finish first, I wonder?

Heather had a finish to show us, she had been experimenting with appliqued butterflies. This pretty quilt will be donated to a worthy cause, and someone is sure to love snuggling underneath it.

Carol loves embroidery, and was working on her latest stitching project, a basket of flowers.

As for me, I was stitching some binding down on a secret sewing project, so no photos yet. And my Rudolf made an appearance, and was judged as not too bad as a first attempt. I think he rather liked all the attention! If he is very lucky, he may have his friend the snow man to join him sometime in the future.

So that was our morning, always fun to catch up with the ladies, and help Mary celebrate her special day.
