From the Manly Branch of the CWA which is celebrating its 100th birthday in August. It is the second oldest branch in NSW. Personally I find this amazing as Manly could not be any further away from being "countryfied" but having said that it is a very active branch and well supported in the community.
Anyway back to the call out. In order to celebrate this momentous occasion they are hosting a "100 party" where they will have on display 100 tea cosies, 100 aprons and 100 different cakes to sample and enjoy. Sounds like a good party. The sales manager at our complex is a member of the Manly Branch and has put it out there for any residents who may like to join in the fun to make a tea cosy, apron or bake something delicious.
I knew that there was the perfect fabric lurking in my stash just waiting for the right project to come along.
And so a tea cosy was made when joining in FNSI.
There was some wool wadding left over from my last quilt which was used so hopefully the tea in the pot will be kept nice and warm for quite a while after being made.
I have marked the day in August in my diary and plan to attend. It will be interesting to see the exhibition and of course enjoy some morning tea......I hope that they will have their famous scones there.
This audio book was playing while sewing away. It was about a mother who went to extraordinary lengths to protect her son who as it turned out did not need her lies. There were many twists and turns and just as you thought you had guessed who dunn it there was another twist thrown in.
Bedtime reading is the latest Kate Morton Book "Homecoming" and I have to admit that it is hard to put down and find my hands wandering to it instead of starting book club book. I have read quite a few of this author's books and enjoyed them all.
During the week hubs and I met up with friends for coffee - and cake of course - .....we could not get much closer to the sand if we tried.
Even though it is well past autumn some of the deciduous trees around our area are still hanging onto their leaves. The tree below reminds me of a set of traffic lights, green, amber and red.
Back soon and in the meantime
Happy sewing all
