Saturday Meet Up

I can now show you the two ornaments that I have given out this weekend.

Firstly here is the Ornament for Lorna for the Ornie exchange I am in.

And this ornie was for Wendy as a thank you for doing me a huge favour!

I did some crochet on the day also manage to do one flower hexagon,when I have some daylight I will take some more pics.

We did a Raffle with a difference, we all wrapped our raffle bits in brown paper so when people went up they weren't attracted by the packaging. This is my raffle prize from Helen.
Thank you Helen!

I forgot to take a picture of mine that Ann won. I do hope she really liked it!

Here are some pics from the meet up





I like this one we were messing about on the stage whilst Ann took some pics, LOL This is the calmer one we did!


I do look forward to these meetups.
I won't be helping organise another myself, as this last week I have not been able to contact the caretaker of the community centre, so had no idea if everything was still okay until the morning of the meet up, then I was worried people wouldn't be able to find it, as well as other family stresses as well that morning!
To those who organise these things on a regular basis I hold my hat off to you!!
I would love a stitchy retreat to do stuff all weekend, so no packing away to go home.
