A bitterly cold day in Warrandyte

Brrrr it was cold and wet, but cosy and warm was the temperature and fellowship in Anne's home in Warrandyte. 
There were five of us yesterday as we met to hook rugs, chat, eat, drink hot drinks and just catch up with news.
But we miss one of our original members, Robyne. We miss your jolly company Robyne. Just know that we love you and we hope you come back soon. However her family must come first. 
Rug hooking is quality time for most of us as we relax and do what we love to do. The world is a busy place and taking time out to meet with like-minded people is a treat. For some of us, this is the only time we get to work on our rugs, but that's OK, that's what makes it special. This is the time to smell the roses in our busy lives.
Anne's santa rug is now ready to hang on the wall this Christmas. Her santa is a beautiful contrast with her choice of antique black for the background. She is now on a run to finish all those unfinished items she has sitting in the cupboard, which were forgotten for a time. 
Jen's rug is also a picture of contrasting colours, her beautiful yellow/golden sun in a brilliant blue sky. Joy continued work on the first tread of her five step staircase. Will she put it to use as soon as the first one is finished or will she wait until all are completed? 
Sandra, was busy finishing off Shaun the Sheep with a gorgeous brilliant orange border. It sets little Shaun off beautifully Sandra.


 I- Chris, am now working on the background of my portrait rug, grandchild number six- Milly. I will be glad when they have all been completed. I am looking for a change.
As usual, the day went too quick, but we lasted till 4PM, when we dragged ourselves away from our rugs and each other, satisfied and ready to return to our daily toil. Cheers.
