‘Hellova’ Hobby Night

I  know I say it a lot, but I flippin’ love the WI!!  Tonight members met at Gallones ice cream parlour in MH to share an informal hobby night.  We have so many talented and interesting ladies.  I was so impressed by the quality of crafting, needlework, artistry and baking.  I was in awe of Fiona’s needle case collection, which reminded me of one of those amazing finds on The Antiques Roadshow;  the endlessly talented Gemma, sat in a corner producing intricate chinese rice paper paintings; and as for Laura and her handmade leather shoes….beautiful!!

For those of you who missed out on this amazing show and tell, don’t be down hearted.  This evening felt like a small taster preview of the goodies to be won in the Handmade Raffle at the AGM September meeting.  Don’t forget to bring along a handmade gift of some sort to be able to join in.  Judging by tonight’s turnout there will be a variety of fabulous gifts to be won!

We must extend our huge THANKS to the lovely staff at Gallones that looked after us all so well. If you haven’t yet been in for an ice cream, we can thoroughly recommend it!  And don’t forget that they can organise kids parties too!!

Well done ladies, see you in September!
