About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Tulip Time in the Southern Highlands... with quilts!

Here in sunny NSW, Australia, spring is here and it is so lovely to get out and about. (Not that we can't do that in winter - it's pretty mild!)

We mentioned at The Craft Group the other week that there is a Tulip Festival on in the Southern Highlands.

Bowral Baptist Church is a good place to start.
Harriet went for a day and this is what she said...

"Today, Ross and I went to the Bowral Baptist Church for the Artisan Showcase.   What a wonderful exhibition, particularly of quilts.  They did a lovely morning tea and lunch (very reasonably priced).  After that we went to the gardens to see the tulips – what a wonderful display.

This event is on each day until October 4th (except for Sundays) and is well worth going to.  Not sure if any of the craft ladies would be interested in going, but it is well worth the hour drive down."

So, if you are in NSW and feel like a nice day out... do it!

Knitting for Mission without Borders

Knitting an item takes ages. Stitch by stitch the item slowly grows. Why would you bother?
We do it for love!
For the love of creating and for the love of the ones who will be wearing the items!

So, let's take our hats off to some fantastic ladies in The Craft Group who have made nearly 70 knitted items for charity! I don't want to mention their names (mainly Kay C, Bev G) unless I miss someone but here are their lovely warm creations. We sent them off to Mission without Borders who will send them to those in need in Eastern Europe. They suggest some patterns but are happy with other items such as these...


Thank you ladies, your hearts and hands are generous.
