This time our Sew Wot Tuesday was at Sandra’s home. Her two dogs were out on the deck and really, really, wanted to come inside and see the ladies. But not everyone copes with dogs very well, so they were relegated to the deck instead, where they looked longingly through the glass doors. I had taken along a big bag of threads, courtesy of my neighbour who had moved to a rest home. I had already made my selection and there were plenty left to share, including some variegated machine quilting threads, and I’m pleased to report that most of the reels found new homes. I’m still working my way through the last box of “stuff” I received when my neighbour left, and hopefully I’ll get to the end of it soon.
Plenty of thread to share
Show and Tell is always the highlight of our mornings and Carol had brought along four knitted toys, she really is a whizz on making these. She had made a bunny, a piggy, a grey pussy cat and a pretty pink koala, some littlies will love playing with these.
Cute knitted toys
Carol was also finishing a quilt for her grandson Nathan, almost ready to be posted away.
Made for a grandson
Mary had completed a pretty little cardigan and this will be put away in her Granny box for a future grandchild. It’s always a good idea to have a few things in reserve, just in case. And knitting for babies is always nice to do.
Mary’s show and tell
Helen and Mary were stitching away on their EPP projects, and Heather, Sandra, Carol and myself were knitting as we chatted away. Heather’s socks were using up sock wool from other projects, that's Franken-knitting I told her – a term she hadn't heard before.
It was another lovely morning, with a tasty morning tea served, as usual. Thanks so much to Sandra for hosting us. I wont be able to attend the next couple of Sew Wots get-togethers as we have appointments scheduled, plus a caravan trip coming up.
We always enjoy our morning teas
