May Canberra meet - pincushions!!!

Today was a busy crafty day in the Capital, with the opening of the Craft ACT shop, and the Handmade Markets too (in fact, one of our very clever Owls spent the day looking after her own stall!!). And this afternoon Canberra's parliament of Brown Owls (and a couple of owlets too!) got together for some pincushion stitching.

We had gorgeous spotty toadstools,

teeny tiny strawberries,
(you know, that picture just insists on uploading sideways like that!)

and itty bitty bottlecap pincushions.

Handstitched hedgies

and machine pieced Kootoyoo patchworky pincushions.

And, of course, lots of tasty goodies for afternoon tea!

Thanks to everyone who could make it this time - we'll have details for you about the June meeting really soon!
