Preston Brown Owls Meeting

Maybe it was the knitting, maybe it was the company or maybe it was the brownie but I completely forgot to take any photos of our October meeting!

So imagine if you will, the round table at Pearl Oyster, teacups, cake plates and hives of industry. Keti, fabulously pregnant with only seven weeks to go, was crocheting up a storm on her second baby blanket, this one a homage to her beloved's football team.

Ann-Margaret was working away on blue/gray garter scarf with stripey ribbon yarn ends. By the time she left, she was but a telly episode away from FINISHING! Just in time for next winter.

Kathryn reached the armholes on her ribbed sweater and I was plodding through cables and slip stitches for a cardigan that will also be ready for next winter.

Holly brought a magic carpet of mending, transporting us all back about thirtyish years, with her patched restoration of the family Puggle.

The instant I saw it, I was back in Toyworld in Karingal Hub Shopping Centre in some sort of forest scene set up, loads of Puggles and a lot of thwarted desire. I never got one and forgot them entirely until Brown Owls Meet.

Our next regular meeting is

Sunday November 20 2-4pm

We will be meeting in the upstairs sewing room at GJ's - it is light and airy and has lots of tables and even tea and coffee stuff. If you are coming you need to bring your own sewing machine if you have one. BYO sewing project and materials are available to purchase downstairs in the fabric shop. I will be running a little tutorial on making a zip purse.

If you would like to make one of these you will need
  • 16cm-17cm skirt zip
  • approximately 2 x 20cm square piece of cotton fabric for the outside
  • approximately 2 x 20cm square piece of cotton fabric for the lining

Please bring all your own scissors, pins etc for your projects if you have them - I will bring stuff for beginners.

See you soon
