Picnic in the Park

Yesterday Maree, Lynn and Pat went up to Cleveland to meet the Gumtree Nut Ladies. Pat is up on the Gold Coast on holidays from Narromine, NSW.
It was a great morning. 17 ladies from around Brisbane, Gold Coast, Ipswich and even the Sunshine Coast turned up to meet with Joy, Fiona, Dawn,Vicki and of course "Jenny".

Me with the Gumtree Nut Ladies.






We all had a great morning chatting and laughing. Don't forget Joy you promised to organise some regular get togethers with the South East Qld bloggers and quilters.


Maree, Lynn and I got to hand over the Sewing Caddies, Bags etc that we have been making for the Flood Victims to Joy. It was really good to have them all finished and on their way to their new homes. Maree made most of them and she has done a wonderful job.


The sewing Caddies with matching Needle Case and Scissor Holders.


The bags with matching Scissor Fob and Sewing Case.
Maree, Lyn, Pat and I then went to Thread and Ginger and Bayside Sitchcraft Patchwork Shops for some retail therapy. We then had afternoon tea, of course.
It was a wonderful day and can't wait to do it again.
