Sunflowers and Leaves

Today was Project Tuesday at the bee. Barb provided us with three options for our October wall hanging – sunflowers, a leaf wreath or a Remembrance Day wreath. As always she provided us with patterns and all the help we needed.

There wasn’t too much chatter about Hands Across the Water but I understand that a good time was had by all. I know some members got in a bit of shopping and Kathy Parker came home with a fascinating door prize.

Because it was a project day we all enjoyed a pot luck lunch. Barb’s challenge to us last month was to bring gluten-free dishes. The counter couldn’t have held more plates and the food was all delicious. We are mulling over a couple of options for our November pot luck. Someone suggested sugar-free (which no doubt would be a healthier choice) but a pizza day was also gaining support. Stay tuned!

I’ve added a new suggestion to the Website of the Week (on your right under Pages).

The Tuesday Sandwich Board

There were lots of sunflowers and wreaths almost completed by the end of the day. And there were some other lovely projects being worked on as well.
