Saturday 15 April at the Hotel Pennant Hills

9 of us made it to the pub for lunch and some knitting, crocheting and sewing. For a change it was a perfect day with sunshine streaming through the window and no cardigans, coats or umbrellas required. It was a lovely relaxing afternoon which we all thoroughly enjoyed.

The popular choice for lunch appeared to be the Sticky Squid Salad. I really enjoyed mine!

The handwork:

Apologies to M@#$*, I neglected to take a picture of your blue knitting for your Grandson.

Irene was working on the finishing touches of this beautiful rug.


Cath was working on hexagons.


Selina was also working on hexagons.


Penny was working on pieces for her blue colourway  Lucy Boston quilt.


Jill was hand quilting.


Lynne was knitting a collar in a lovely soft variagated yarn.


Heather was continuing to applique diamonds.


Glynis was also working on hexagons for her ongoing project.

 Lynne's handwork, I wonder what this will be.

 Pennie - I'm knitting a little vest for my almost one year old grand daughter and when that gets too tricky I knit squares for Wrapped with Love.

 Penny has to be one of the most patient people I know, Susan Boston here we come

 Robyn makes the loveliest brightest quilts ever.

 Selina is onto another masterpiece, try and take a hard look at the pattern!  Amazing!
