August Summer Party

Today we eagerly gathered for our August meeting
 We arrived bearing gifts for our Summer Garden Party
 Waiting for everyone to arrive we admired the view
 Then took our seats in the work room to admire the view again
 We looked at one another's photographs
We shared information 
 Looks interesting Dina

It was all going on!
 Ruth shared her wonderful work from a shibori workshop with Sian Martin
 The fabric holds its shape even when wet, it will dry back to this shape
 We loved the shibori
 Pat and Heather even wore the shibori

Di managed to do some hand embroidery today
 Way to go Heather (Sorry didn't manage to avoid the camera this time)
Clare Wassermann's photo.
 ...and we shared resource books - thank you Debbie
 We had combined a banquet
 Then it was time to PARTY as the sun came out to shine upon us
 We lunched in the beautiful garden
 ...and had a veritable feast
 We were honoured as Smartie joined us
 We perused the garden and met the fish...
 ...the flora
and the fauna

 On behalf of all the ladies who attended the bistro in Tettenhall, can I express our thanks to Clare for opening her door to us and letting us stay to share one another's company in such an idyllic setting on a gorgeous day. We all had a wonderful time in the company of thread obsessives sharing ideas, inspiration and textile chat.
