Grandies Day at Patchwork

Two things combined to bring a number of Grandies to visit the Cottage today, sign in day, where everyone brings along their sale goodies for the Easter Fair, and school holidays.

One young lassie, bought along her flimsey for show and tell.
All her own work, done with guidance from Granny. 
Teddy has been hand appliqued, just look at the neat little stitches.
The little quilter even has her quilting design all worked out, first she will sandwich it and then she will hand quilt a heart around teddy.

Jan, our President, popped in to see how we were trucking along, seeing as the Cottage is in a bit of disarray, well, setting up for a Fair will do that, not to mention two young workmen creating the new office space! anyhoo, Jan just had to inspect the seams, boy was she impressed!

Being the talented lassie that she is, this little patchworker has her very own IPad, with her very own password no less, but don't you just love the screen saver? Talk about BLING!
The little Patchworker's brother was also at the Cottage, sporting a rather unique (to moi-never seen before) friendship band, made with 'Loom Bands'. 
He was only too willing to chat and fill us in on all the details, this one only took him about 25 mins to create.  He even went into the pros and cons of the various clip styles that can be had to fasten the bands.
Well, couldn't wait to share this wonderful new discovery with my little Grandie, scooted home, fired up the net, got the pics and tutorials up and called him in.....the result?...blase`! "Yeah Grandma, you just make them with those tiny little elastic bands"....oh, the disappointment!

Janice snaffled two Camelias from her Dad's garden to bring in to share with Marie, just couldn't resist a pic.

Courtney is continuing with her long-stitch of dolphins, well on the way to a stunning wall hanging.

Jenny, who accompanies Courtney to the Cottage has been knitting this beauty, he is a black Labrador looking back over his shoulder.
 Jenny says he may not look exactly like the pattern pic but she loves him.  All that is missing is his eyes, soon to be added.

Sue had her dogs banner all finished and ready for the Easter Fair, of course, she then decided to be coy, seems to be a bit of that going around!
Can't wait for tomorrow! Set Up Day! Yay!!, really starting to get excited about the Easter Fair, will pop up to the Cottage tomorrow for some sneak peek pics for you all. 

If you are in our neck of the woods on Saturday, pop in to say Hi and satisfy the creative inner you, there are many, many groups that make up our Cottage and all will have a myriad of goodies for Sale and browsing.

The Fair will start at 8a.m and run until 2.30p.m.

The Buderim Lions Club, Buderim Library and of course, our groups in the Buderim Craft Cottage all band together to put on this fantastic Easter Fair.
We are easy to find, the Memorial Hall  (Lions Club with the Library upstairs) is on the corner of Glouster Road and Church street intersected by Main Street, the Cottage is next door at 5 Main Street Buderim, opposite the State Primary School.
There is a small grassed area between the Memorial Hall and our Cottage, and there will be stacks of stalls all set up there as well.

Where:  5 Main Street Buderim
When:   Saturday 19th April 2014
Food and Drinks:  There are lots of food options available, both at the Memorial Hall and from our Cottage Kitchen where Patchwork Group members will be on hand to serve you luscious goodies to munch on as well as hot or cold drinks to enjoy while settling back for a well earned rest under cover on our garden patio.
Entry is Free and Food and Drink charges are very reasonable.
Hope to see you there.
