Brown Owls Melbourne 3000, didnt we have a lovely time

Last night was our first meet. It went jolly well. There were 23 lovely gals and one super bloke regaling in the splendour of the venue that was the Parlour room at Madame Brussels.

There was stitching, knitting, pippy slippering, crochet, hexagons, buttons and quite a lot of chatting and generally very good super sharing-ness.

Thanks very much to Tanya crochet teacher - look what can be achieved in just one evening, complete novice to granny squarer extraordinaire:

Some tennis outfit clad peeps served us toasties, fine cheese, wine, champagne and some lovely tea, from a proper pot, appropriately beclad in knitted tea cosy (the pot was the only thing proper about it, i found out late in the evening that that tea was undercover - and i dont mean just cosy under its knitted cosy - it was cheekily actually hot toddy - sneaky!)

And look, this is me and my first ever Brown Owl buddy Shannon.

A lovely time had by all.

Next meet details will be announced tomorrow, get ready to RSVP! Look forward to seeing you soon.
