We organised to get into the room before the others arrived so we could set up the tables for everyone.
We chose a 'High Tea' theme for the day. We had fun collecting table clothes, tiered plates, glasses, flowers and anything else we thought would look good for the day..
I made a couple of gifts for the girls - I decorated some small coffee cups and then placed chocolates inside and then I made some cards and placed a tea bag inside..
We held a little swap on the day - a decorated coat hanger.. I can show you mine all wrapped up but I forgot to take a photo of the finished item. The bottom gorgeous hanger is the one I received from Teresa on the day - thank you lovely lady - I love it..
We also had show 'n' tell on the day - here are some quick pics of them..
My 'Bee Happy' quilt top (which is now the property of Teresa) and my christmas wall hanging.
Lynda brought in two beautiful quilts that her mother had made - what a lovely idea for a mother's day gathering.. Thank you Lynda..
We had two 'May' birthday girls this month - Tatyana and Maria - Happy Birthday girls..xx
I don't know why, but tea always taste better in a pretty cup.
It was a fantastic day and it definitely was not "Boring"..lol
Should I explain my 'Boring' comment...yeah ok..
A little while ago, one of the girls commented, very cheekily, how as a group, we didn't do anything exciting and how we had become a 'Boring' group.. This sounds mean but she did it very tactfully and meant it with a big heart. Anyhow, this seems to have become our motto, so anything we do now seems to have the comment - 'not boring' added to it.. I'm glad she spoke up because it has been more fun - we seem to have more show 'n' tell, and more activities. You never know - after our Mother's Day Morning Tea, some of the other girls might think of some 'non boring' activities for us to do... It's been great getting more involved with each other as everyone is lovely and definitely very talented. I love being a member of this group.. Thanks Girls..
catchya all later..
