It was Sew Wot Tuesday again, this time held at Jude’s home. And it was her birthday too, so we sat and watched at she opened several gifts. I think we were just as excited as Jude was, to see what was in these parcels. Soap, hand crotched face cloths, binding clips, hand cream, fabric, and goodies like chocolate fish and marshmallows, such an exciting variety of small gifts.
Happy Birthday to Jude
Carol started off the Show and Tell with a knitted purple baby set, vest, hat and matching toy, which will be donated. So cute.
Pretty purple knitting
Carol had also made a pretty little doll’s quilt to be gifted to a little girl, who is sure to have fun wrapping this around her favourite dolly or teddy bear.

I had brought along my just made polar bear quilt top to show the ladies. The fabric used was donated to me from the stash of my elderly neighbour who moved into a rest home, I have been given such a lot of kiddies fabric which will keep me going for ages.
Polar bears, seals and penguins
Mary was working on such a pretty tablecloth, a wonderful Op Shop find. After the embroidery is completed she will be adding a crotched edge, plus a fabric border. Gorgeous colours in this project.

Heather had her lovely pale green hand knitted knee rug/blanket. We told her that because she is doing so well, we expect to see it completed at our next Sew Wots get-together.
That’s a lot of knitting, Heather
Then the tea trolley was wheeled out and we stopped our knitting and stitching to enjoy our morning tea. There was a lovely spread, including a cream sponge, and some locally made Liquorice Allsorts, yummy. Then we all sang Happy Birthday to Jude on her special day.
We had a very pleasant morning together, as always. Most of us were knitting, Heather working on her blanket, Sandra was starting another cream baby’s blanket, and Carol was knitting something in pink. Mary is an expert knitter and she helped me with a problem on my knitting project, thanks so much Mary. And thanks again to Jude for a lovely morning.
