The Morning Tea

Our Australia's Biggest Morning Tea on Thursday was a great success thanks to all who attended, donated to our Cancer Council Fund, baked cakes, donated goody bag items or raffle prizes.

We far exceeded our original target of $500 with a total of $940 raised so far, including 20% of our studio sales that morning. It's not too late to make a donation if you wish.

Read on to see who was there and click on their names to read their blogs.

Here's a glimpse of the crowd with Georgina and Liz on the right.

Jenny, Kerri and Katherine.

Linda, Joyce, Pam and Sonia.

Three lovely sisters; Amie, Jessica and Kate.

Emma and Sandrine.

Tracey and Linda.

Sandrine and Sophie.

Home-baked goods by Sandrine, Tracey, Georgina, Chantal and me.

I'm sorry if I didn't get to chat to all of you and take your photos. I really need to invest in a hot water urn before future functions so that I can spend more time with you.

I will be posting more images later of the goody bag items and acknowledging those who contributed.

It was a lovely morning with a lot of great networking happening. Would you like us to host future Morning Teas for free social networking?

It all looks wonderful Thea and I can imagine that the boys headed for the hills with all of the excited 'catching' up that no doubt was happening in your glorious space.

The tea towel in the window is sublime with the light filtering through it by the way.
