A nice afternoon

Yesterday a group of us girls met at Amanda's for an afternoon of stitching. It coincided with Mrs Martins cyberstitch.

There was some very yummy food thanks to Amanda.

Ha, ha ... talking too much. I can never get anything done when I go to the guild gatherings ... I'm too busy listening!

Looks like a fun time.

Looks like fun and I had to laugh at your saying the bloggers were busy taking photos. We had a gathering at my house last night, and the two of us bloggers both had our cameras, but had so much fun we forgot to take pictures.

Now those cupcakes are interesting - do you cut out the center and fill it with something yummy?

Jodie said...
