Some had a desert - the lemon meringue pie was tooo tempting for Lorraine, there were other goodies around the table to. There was good music to listen to and lots of chatting then we headed off to attempt to do a few stitches.

1st birthday!

We're celebrating our group's first birthday next week! Happy Birthday to us!!
To mark the occasion, we're heading to Vines (ex-Roombas) for a wee drinkie at
7pm next Wednesday evening. Hope you can all make it. We haven't decided whether to come back to the library room for quilting & stitching afterwards, depends how comfortable we get at Vines, and how straight our stitches are likely to be.....
Great to see how far the group has come in one year - so much talent, lots of fun, learning all the time, sharing good times (and sometimes not so good), and making friends. Just what a friendship group should be! I for one am very happy to spend my time with my crafty friends!
