Brisbane’s first Brown Owls meet

February 22, 2009

Fifteen crafty peeps gathered today for the first Brisbane Brown Owls meet. There was loads of chatting, eating and sewing.

Bel kept our energy levels high with tasty treats like owly cupcakes, banana caramel tarts and Mars Bar slice.

Mmmmm… she is definitely the cupcake queen!

Clever Abbey ensured we were occupied with little brown owl and blue bird brooch making kits, perfect for our 2 hour time frame. I wore my blue bird for a trip into the city afterwards and received quite a few compliments! Nice one Abbey :)

There were lots of ideas for future meetings including group afghan knitting, sewing totes and crochet (ooh… and a post-craft dip in the pool!) I think I speak for everyone when I say how fabulous it was to share a Sunday morning with like-minded people.
Dates for the next few meetings will be confirmed soon and we will aim to have a sewing machine or two available. I can’t wait!

    It was fun – I suspect I am the least crafty person there though! (Someone has to be, it means I can learn lots)

    And I spent all day today craving a banana-caramel-cream cupcake. They were brilliant.

    Oh, those owls look very cute all sitting there together – Abbey you’re very clever! Thank-you to all the prefects for such a stellar job of organising our first meet. I had such a lovely time, and met so many interesting and wonderful people. And can I also add my voice to the chorus of praise for Bel’s cupcakes. They were simply outstanding!!!!!
