First Canberra meet-up!

Hellooo-hoo fellow Brown Owlies!

You know, here in Canberra we had our VERY FIRST Brown Owls meet up yesterday!!!
It was rainy, so we sat inside - it was very cosy!! It was so so busy, but luckily we had our mascot so everyone could find us!



It was lovely that most of our Canberra Brown Owls could make it -
Michelle L
Georgie K
Naomi D
Bec C
Renae B
Melissa Mc
Amanda R
Emma A
Jess B
Lea D
and me - Bron S

were all able to come along.

Michelle W and Jodie W couldn't make it this time, but we are looking forward to meeting them next time!

There was lots of crafty goodness, and of course refreshments!


And plenty of book/magazine show and tell
(ooh look - it's Pip and the girls in Frankie mag!)


Our very own Bec has been the Canberra contact for the Blankets of Friendship project - collecting 12" knit and crochet squares to sew into blankets for Victoria's bushfire survivors, so she brought along a few bags of squares and crochet queen Michelle showed us how to join them up!


Wow those hands are fast!


Busy little owls!!!



We also collected some lovely things to send to Melbourne to help re-stash some crafters!

Thanks girls for an excellent afternoon!
We're already looking forward to and planning for our next meet-up!
And we can't wait to see how much fun the other Brown Owl groups have at their meetings too!

I just love that last photo! A very industrious parliament of owls, we were.

Can't wait for the next meet. Just wait till you hear what we have planned!!
