Lachlan Craft Circle, May 19, 2017

Lachlan Craft Circle are still living the gypsy life whilst renovations continue on the Lachlan Hall. Special thanks go to Lachlan Fire Brigade for offering the use of their meeting room to our girls today. The room was cozy, filled with chatter and laughter and a great atmosphere of “togetherness”. Heaps of handiwork in progress and on display – innovation and motivation!
Thanks to Dallas for making the meeting room and facilities spick and span for our use today.

Lachlan Craft Circle, May 5, 2017

Today our craft girls gathered at Lachlan Valley Food and Wine as the Lachlan Hall is still a “building site” with interior works. With the luxury of a glowing wood fire and the best coffee in town on hand, the day was not difficult to enjoy. Judging by the level and volume of conversation, it is obvious that all had a rollicking good time. The venue and distractions didn’t distract from the work in hand and at the end of the day there were a lot of beautiful projects to display.
Missed you today Sybil!
Can’t thank you enough Rhondda for your hospitality and generosity!

Lachlan Craft Circle, April 21, 2017

Autumn in the Lachlan Valley can be the most perfect time of year, and so it was today. Lachlan Craft Circle enjoyed a relaxing and perfect day of craft in the park. This beautiful opportunity to work in the natural environment brought out the spinners, knitters, card makers and crocheters along with “swap books” and yet more chocolate Easter eggs for everyone’s enjoyment! With no lack of conversation the hours slipped by as the sun turned the deciduous trees to glowing shades of yellow and russet. As always, that touch of quirkiness of the Lachlan was evident with the emus gazing at our group from behind the fence across the road! Love this place!

Lachlan Craft Circle, April 7, 2017

Today the gathering in Lachlan Hall was a small one with many members absent for varying reasons. Surprisingly, the noise level remained pretty much the same as usual! Does this mean that all the quiet members were absent or did those of us present feel we needed to talk louder to cover the extra distance between the chairs?
Many happy returns of the day to Lorraine and a very Happy Easter to all before we meet again.

New friends and old friends (returned) were welcomed at the Lachlan Hall today. Even though there was, as usual, much to discuss and laugh over, the multi-tasking skills of women came to the fore as handwork continued in harmony with the flow of conversation. Thanks for yet another lovely day girls!

Autumn has arrived in the Lachlan Valley, yet the “Indian Summer” we are currently enjoying is holding off the colours of the season and the surrounding hills are brown and dry as toast. However, as sure as day is day and night is night we all know that chilly days and nights are not far off. Lachlan Craft Circle members will definitely not be caught out as the knitting needles are clacking and wheels are whirring – plenty of the “warm stuff” in the making. One of our members has generously iced and decorated a cake to be donated to the Lachlan Fire Brigade to raffle. All good people here, worth their weight in gold.
Happy Birthday to Sybil for the 16th – you have brought more to many of us in the Lachlan group than you will ever know!

Lachlan Craft Circle – February 24, 2017

Accolades to Rhondda for her generous invitation to Lachlan Craft Circle to meet at Lachlan Food and Wine today. Yet again our group was left venue-less with Lachlan Hall Committee double-booking the Hall.
Cake decorating, spinning, knitting, embroidery, hand sewing, rug making, jig-saw expertise and a jumble sale of yarns and knitting needles added variety to the day’s activities – easy access to very good coffee was a heavenlty bonus!

Lachlan Craft Circle, February 10, 2017

Another gorgeous summer day in the Lachlan Valley and our members gathered in the Hall – some diligently working at craft projects, some completing works in progress, some simply “kicking back” and relaxing in good company. However, there was only one “shining star” amongst us today and that would be Rebecca who has completed an amazing crocheted rug for her Robbie. Now with that enormous project completed, can’t believe he has been brave enough to request a cushion too!

Lachlan Craft Circle, January 27, 2017

A magic Derwent Valley day presented our members with a perfect opportunity to craft in Gleeson Park today. The atmosphere was relaxed and easy, despite the push-button barbeque plate which kept us on our toes as it mystically turned itself on intermittently! Of course, that had nothing to do with the fact that Cathie was sitting close by.
