Grannies' meeting

Well now ladies, what have we here?  A grannies' meeting?  Last night it was a tad cold in the church hall and one by one people seemed to be wrapping themselves up.  And very useful the big blankets turned out to be too!

First it was Anne with the Fairytale Blanket

Then Gillain almost completely covered herself in Aran McPhee but that's OK because Gillian has been feeling a bit under the weather and this was her first night with us in ages
Barbara had her latest ripple blanket over her knees - lovely bright colours

Leigh was 'just trying out' Fleg for Queen Niqi

And Karen was measuring her Learning to Crochet blanket against Heather's Cappucino Aran  blanket for size
But the highlight of the evening was planning THE party of the season.  An evening not to be missed on 5th  June when Hookery at Coffee Dock will reach the mega-heights of one year old.  Yes, hard to believe but Hookery will have been meeting outside The Bookery for a whole year.  At our party we will have sweets and savouries, home-made ice cream, non-alcoholic cordials and, of course, cake.  We may even dress up for the occasion and you may be treated to facial photographs once again, not seen since we played dinner guests to the Brownies when they did their Hostess Badge earlier in the year.

Two of the original Hookery 3 had been no longer required to serve in The Bookery a few months ago and now Member 3 has also been discharged from her Bookery duties.  The three will once again be united on a Wednesday evening.  Looking forward to that.

See you next week :-)


  1. When will we three meet again...

    1. Are you just trying to tempt the bad weather? I don't think it needs any encouragement to give thunder, lightening or rain!

  2. 29th May :-) :-) :-)

    (I hope)

  3. 29th May- whoop whoop! I'll bring the wet weather gear...
