Following the thrills and spills of activity over the last few months it was time for us all to relax and enjoy a summer meal at the Beech Tree at Culverhouse Cross.
And, now that Caroline has retired she is able to join the merry clan!
It was also great to see Hilary, recovering well from her foot operation and sporting a very trendy surgical boot that was a perfect match for her shoe -or was it that she bought the shoes to perfectly match her trendy boot?
A great evening and already looking forward to the next one !
The shipment of shoes has arrived in Lesotho and the children at St Gerards school are thrilled.
As well as shoes the shipment contained shoe bags, knitted toys, sweatshirts and sports clothes!
Well done to everyone who made it happen and well done to Lakeside school – what a great support they are to St Gerards!
As well as being chatty our group can also be very productive and today was a good example. Everyone was busy doing something. Hilary and Jackie were busy winding silk threads on to card – a job that seems to be never ending but Hilary is doing a great job selling it to raise money for charity.
Jenny was making a pair of baby bootees ready for the arrival of another grandchild and Helen was busy knitting for her very first grandchild.
Pam was finishing off her challenge quilt and Monica was completing more Scottie Dogs!
And, not forgetting Deedi, who was pulling a dress to pieces so that she could make it into something else – or to sew it back together again!?
Never a dull moment and more to look forward to throughout the summer!
On 14 February Pam was busy making hearts form the Financial Times for Valentines day. She was planning to give them away to friends who were joining her in the evening for book club.
Whilst she was busy beavering away at the Helen was busy knitting.
And, Deedi was showing off a little Teddy Bear that she had just finished. He’s very sweet.
It was a very pleasant afternoon, made even more enjoyable with home made apple and cinnamon cake courtesy of Jess!
