The day of the 'Valentine's Tea Party'.

Before I start talking about cake, don't forget The Great British Sewing Bee is back on our screens next Tuesday 18th Feb, BBC 2, 8.00pm.
It's great to see a programme about sewing and also how popular it has become.

Now, on to the cakes. There was hardly any room on the table.

                                                          Tired looking at cakes yet?!

Thanks to the Harmony Hill ladies it was a very successful morning.
Our Valentine's Tea Party raised £112. 50 for the
Children's Kidney Fund for NI.


Myrtle, Judy, and Elizabeth took part in 'Members Stories' and chatted about how they became interested in sewing. Most of us learnt from our mother's and were stitching from an early age.

Elizabeth told us about her young grand-daughter, Darcy, age 9, who has picked up the sewing bug.
She has a little Janome sewing machine and this is some of her work below.

I loved the little stuffed owl, right, and she's made an 'owl fabric' bag to carry him in.

I think Darcy might be on 'The Great British Sewing Bee' one day!
