Members night.

This is the one month every year when we don't have a speaker, and the committee provide something for the members to do.  With our Regional Day looming on the horizon, it was decide we would have stations making various items for the sales table that we need on the day.  Fifty five members turned up armed with needle and thread and stitched, laughed and chatted the evening away.

 Members can also bring along unwanted textile related items or books to sell.  Our Branch deducts 10%  to help boost funds.  I manged to buy this book that I have been wanting for some time :0)
 The committee members also make cakes for the members to have with their cup of tea.  I had a slice of Diane's Tipsy Fruit Cake-it was delicious.  This morning while waiting for my cake to cook, I managed to make another block for the Oz Comfort Quilts appeal-that's 4 finished now.

I don't wish to tempt fate, but it looks as if my Range cooker is going to be delivered tomorrow  at last.
