Preston Brown Owls

September Meeting

Our September meeting was just lovely with some new members joining regular Owls for chats, craft and delightful treats from Pearl Oyster. People had brought all kinds of projects.

This is Kathryn's first sweater project. The back is done and she was working on the front.
Aisha was crocheting a very sweet bear for eight week old Zoe asleep in the Hug-a-Bub and Elizabeth was knitting. She is working on a garter stitch square quilt with her Granma who lives interstate and posts squares to Elizabeth.
Shanaugh brought some tatting! Very tricky, very impressive! For those who are new to tatting, it is a lacemaking technique, done with very fine thread, a special type of shuttle and lots of tiny knots.
This is the book Shanaugh was working from. It makes us all want to tatt.
Nicola was getting the jump on Christmas with a spot of paper craft - wee gift bags.
Jodi was upcycling an old Hawaiian dress into a very chic summer skirt. Shield your eyes from its gorgeousness.

I'll be there if the planets are align favourably in bub universe.



The tatting was amazing. I've never seen anything like that before.
