Yesterday was our monthly Crafternoon Tee at the golf club.
The Crafternoon Tea (or Tee as it’s a play with words – golf tee!) came about as there’s quite a few of the ladies at the golf club who have gotten back into sewing after catching the bug. There’s also a few who knit and crochet. And there’s ladies who I know who don’t play golf who come too.
We meet around 11am, (so it not afternoon!) and we are usually good and don’t have cake (so it’s not afternoon tea either!). But there’s always lots of laughs and we usually wear something we’ve made and really inspire each other.
Here’s some pix from yesterday… I did an hours speeding sewing first thing in the morning and made myself a new top to wear, another Mc Calls 6612. I’m not sure of the patterns of what the rest of the ladies have made but I’ll add them when I find out.
Karen wore a wool skirt the’d made:
Lorraine modelled Jean’s newly finished hat:
Gaynor wore a grey shift dress in a ponte knit, the inside of the fabric was as lovely as the outside:
And Suzette did a mini fashion show of all what she’d been making lately:
Karen (who’s Scottish) has some tartan which she had years and decided she wants to make a skirt for golf with a pleated panel at the back.
Gaynor’s been making a girly apron from Simplicity 2295…..
Gaynor also has the most amazing sewing room…..
We had lunch, browsed through a collection of Prima magazine, did a bit of knitting and whatever else we wanted until about 3 when our jaws were aching so much it was time to go home!
Here’s some photo’s from an earlier Crafternoon Tea. Hazel had acquired a huge stash from an elderly friend who had passed and brought some of it for the golf club for us ladies…. We had a good rummage and all found goodies we could make use of.
Lorraine and Karen showed off their handmade outfits…
And Suzette brought her amazing tapestries….
The ladies have also been making clothes for the Fish and Chip babies in Africa (our local rotary pays for the postage to send them):
Karens made an amazing net skirt for her granddaughter:
A new cover for Suzette’s sewing machine:
A knitted zipped cardi by our lovely Lady Captain Glennis:
Our next get together is Monday the 18th February. You really are welcome to joinn us. We won’t make you take up golf (but Gaynor is really thinking about it as she’s not a golfer). We have lots of space & big tables if you want to do any cutting out, and the food is very good and cheap – less than £4 for a club sandwich which fills me up so much I don’t have any tea when I get home!!
Catch you soon
