Our Sew Wot Tuesday rolled around again, and Heather was our “hostess with the mostest”. It was good to catch up with everyone again. Our newest member Jude had just celebrated a birthday, and she had kept her birthday date to herself. But a couple of our ladies had wind of it, and Jude had a lovely gift or two to take home. And I’m sure the rest of us will make a note of the birthday date for next year.
Happy Birthday Jude
Of course there was a little “Show and Tell”, always fun to see, starting with some knitting. Helen had brought along a jumper and hat, made for one of her grandsons. And the cutest little baby singlet, just because she wanted to knit it.
Carol had been knitting too. A lovely baby jumper and hat for donation.

And I had brought along my recently completed apron, with the saying “Be Grateful” stitched on the front.

Heather then brought out a “Treasure Box” made by her daughter. Mandy had used many of the special Birthday and Christmas cards Heather had kept, all too precious not to save. These had been pasted all over the box, both the outside and the inside, and Heather has this beautiful box to store her special keepsake treasures in. What a great idea!

So what we do all morning, between chatting and putting the world to rights? There was some knitting going on, Helen, Jude and Heather were busy with clacking knitting needles. Carol and I were working on our stitcheries, and Mary was busy stitching hexagons together. Plus Heather had brought out a box of bits and pieces to look through, everything looking for a new home. This did the rounds and most of us ended up with something interesting to take home.

As usual, we enjoyed a delicious morning tea. Thanks so much Heather, for a lovely morning.
