Brown Owls Canberra - October report!

We had a good turnout for the Canberra Brown Owls on a cold wet Sunday, and we welcomed our newest Brown Owl - Cathy from Adelaide Brown Owls - to the nest!

The October meeting had crept up rather suddenly on the prefects (oops!) and given them a right royal fright, so they decided to hold another BYO afternoon! I love BYO afternoons - you always have a good time seeing what others are making, and that is inspiration in itself!!

Cass prettied up a little t-shirt. Bron got clever with pinwheel brooches. Michelle L worked on crocheting a sock. Cristy and Michelle W worked on dolls.

Cathy made a beautiful bead and wire brooch.

Naomi and Lea made stencilled bags and felted creations, respectively. Topped off with some lovely food, coffee and tea and the usual fantastic conversation, it was a fabulous afternoon of crafting and friendship!

Next month we are meeting on Sunday 22 November and Michelle (that's me) will be teaching us (that's you) how to applique, both needleturn and blanket stitched. More on that in a couple of weeks though.

Looks like a lovely meeting - so glad that Cathy (Mum!) got to come along.
