Our Miss Lynnie is having a very special “0” birthday and, of course, there needed to be celebrations of some kind. And what better than a get together of friends, food, presents and an afternoon of sewing/knitting.
We started with the presents and Lynnie’s family bought her a beautiful old dinner set
and we all made her a quilt
and some flowers had arrived too.
Then is was time for our shared lunch
followed a little later by birthday cake
Lynnie had bought herself some swanky new boots
and I showed her how to start a pair of socks
my own sock was growing nicely
as was Maree’s scarf
and Helen’s new crochet project
Helen was also embroidering
Jenny finished her Sashiko
Kerryn was knitting squares
Sue was quilting
so too was Miss E
with the help of this sweet little bag
courtesy of Sportsgirl would you believe. Love it when quilters “find” bags not meant for quilting, but so suitable for that purpose!
Kaye had lots of show and tell; from this sweet cuppie doll made by a cousin
to some antique fair finds
and some quilts back from the quilters – love the backing of the snowball one!
and over in the corner, minding her own business, listening to the “grown-up’s” conversation (with amusement I’m sure) was Kaye’s Miss C, who we’ve know since she was 6 and is now at Uni, creating a beauty of her own, with pen and paper.
Thanks for having a birthday, Lynnie! We had a ball!
