So, Have You Been Out Yet?

 No?  Me neither.  Well apart from seeing the family. I am getting used to this staying at home malarky

And now we are all making masks so that we can venture out if we so wish.  Or maybe you are the sensible ones and have been wearing one from the start!  Well done you!

A few members have sent through photos of things that they have made during this isolation time. 

 Ellen is running a sweat shop .....

 And is now all ready

 for Christmas!!!

 Jan has been sewing these pretty hexagons and has now finished her quilt

such pretty colours

 Maria has sewn the squares for a new High Tea Crochet Fusion Quilt and will be ready to add the crochet borders soon

 Debbie has been playing with some bead-work
 Just stunning!!
4" high!!

 Jo has made LOADS more of the Scrubs for the hub

But has taken a bit of time out to join in the latest Style-craft Crochet-A- Long  
Not for the faint hearted I think but it is beautiful. A free pattern if you fancy having a go 
 June as always, has been busy too.  A lovely baby quilt

 and some knitting to keep her out of trouble

 Shirley is getting a reputation as a Bag Lady

 and a well deserved title too. They are lovely.

 Annette is getting through her pile of unfinished items - a sweet baby quilt can be ticked off her list

 Sue has added another round to her Quilters Guild Round Robin sampler
 And has tried her hand at dressmaking too
Well Done Sue
 Lesley has made a reading cushion birthday gift to match a birth quilt gifted last year.

 and went back to an old tutorial from 2010 by Ayumi Mills at Pink Penguin

 and got a bit carried away 😳

 If you are looking for a little something to do, pop over HERE  she has some sweet small projects to keep you busy.

 I have to clear out the cupboard at group so that some work can be done.  The Linus quilts have been isolating for months and will be collected and distributed shortly.  
 If you personally have any items in the cupboard, please let me know, as I will use this as a good opportunity to have a jolly good clear out .

Still In Isolation......

How are we all coping?  It's been quiet on the Whatssap front and not many views here. I seem to have lost the art of waffling on about nothing, but I am going to try again.

Elaine has been very busy making Crumb Blocks

And her very organised Isewlation quilt
Love the sharpness of this

Ellen has been using up her odds and ends and has made this pretty bag

This Christmas box

An Angel

And wool scraps to make a knee rug for the winter

June is preparing for Christmas too, and has made this little chap
and this cutie too.  I wonder if this was a kit?

LOTS and Lots of masks being made

Ellen's mask factory
And these three models are auditioning for the remake of Silence of the Lambs 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Lesley sent off another baby quilt

and made lots of bunting for the VE Day celebrations

Debbie has been very busy too 

She doesn't have a bookshelf  as a backdrop but she does have drawers 😂
A finished crochet blanket

and a different shape mask
Keep up the good work Debbie

Jo and Liz are still making sets of Scrubs for Scrubs up for Northants


Well done ladies 👏👏👏👏👏

Some more quilt pictures this time from Annette, who has been working on these lovely  antique sewing machine embroidered blocks

 and used the left over fabrics to piece a backing too

 Lynda has been rummaging in her scrap boxes and has finished her Isewlation quilt
so effective!

 It doesn't look like Group will be meeting up again anytime soon, but I am sure that you have all been busy sewing and knitting. 

Send your photos to and I promise that I will update the blog again next week

If you want to be added to the Whatssap group send your mobile number by email and I will get you added there. 

Stay Safe xx
