Birthday gathering

I  have spent the last 24ish hours in Gisborne catching up with these lovely ladies
It was the usual Wednesday night gathering, minus a few bodies, busy or unwell or away travelling also last Sunday was Tania 's special birthday...the big 50!! So we lashed out and had fish and chips for dinner and then instead of going out to the usual meeting room we stayed at Margs and had out catch up and did a few stitches there....
Later in the evening we had birthday cake kindly supplied by Tracee 

the birthday girl Tania 

Tracee was working on her stitchery...

Pauline was tatting...amazing work.....

Tania had made her final Underground Railroad Sampler block for us to sign....sorry this is upside down... Marg was going to do some stitching but ended up comforting a nervous dog....I did a little stitching in between chatting...lol.....a very enjoyable time was had.....but today I had to head back to St Leonards....

Love this part of the road...Avenue of Honour in Bacchus Marsh..so pleasant to drive through. ...but back to reality now...some secret sewing happening.....photos later!!
Happy sewing.

A lovely time had by all. Happy birthday to Tania on her big 50. Gees, mine seems like eons ago! The projects look lovely and I particularly like those gorgeous 1800's repro fabrics.
