Sunday Stitching Goes Pink!

 
Last Sunday at our monthly Sunday Stitchers get together we went pink.... all for a very good cause.
We had our Biggest Morning Tea to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer research.
The day called for pink food.... How wonderful is our pink ribbon cake made by Maree?
We went all out and the food was fantastic!
 We had pink cakes, strawberries, marshmallow tea cups, pink cookies, apple and berry crumble, beetroot dips, salmon, salsa, pink M and M's......we had it all!!!
Aren't the little teacups wonderful? Made by the very clever Susan!
We had a raffle and game to raise money and also purchased Breast Cancer awareness coffee mugs for the morning tea. It was a great day, made even more special with the fundraising for such a worthwhile cause. 
This month we also celebrated Cheryls birthday with lots of birthday fat quarters.
So another fat quarter cupcake was in order. 
Maree, Jeanette, De, Cheryl, Lynda, Noela and me... gossiping!
The Gossip in the Garden girls have completed another block ....well Cheryl had another "late slip" ha ha!!! Her note started with "Out of order....." Lucky there is no punishment!
Lots of Show and Tell.... Inca and her gorgeous quilt.
Helen and her gorgeous Twilight Garden quilt. On the right is Maureen who just happens to be the designer of this quilt.
Lynda and her gorgeous Camille Roskelly block
Look how industrious the girls are.... stitching away and making beautiful things.
I did manage to get some stitching done, by the way. Helen, Sandi, Norreen and I decided to work on our mouse pincushions and I finished the wool applique side on the day.
Thank you so much Maree for organising a wonderful day. It was a lot of fun, as always, and I can't wait for the next one....
Have a great week!
