|This lovely Activity Bag for her Grand Daughter|
|Full of things to do|
|Love the spots|
|these are handy little things to pop in your bag.|
It must be a week for finishes - Bridget was celebrating finishing this bag, that was started
7 (yes SEVEN!) years ago. Apparently she was waiting for just the right button to decorate it. (Yeah!)
I know that Chris has also been given some bits and bobs of fabric, so we may see more of these ......next week?
|simple but effective|
Alison is dressing a dolly that she has made, and look, she has even knitted her socks!
|Head to follow shortly|
I for one think its a bit warm for having a quilt sitting on your lap!
Jan is using some lovely Liberty prints to make a hexagon piece
And then there is the Appliqué section
( the other) Jan has added some appliqué to a piece we saw a couple of weeks ago
Pam is making a "Be Attitudes" quilt
Pat is adding a Sun Bonnet Sue block to the back of her Sun Bonnet Sue quilt
|more of those lovely spots|
And Kay is on the home run with her "quiet book" - it's certainly kept her
|such neat stitching|
We had a bevy of stalwart box makers determined to finish their boxes
|Ena making up her own instructions for an Et Tui box|
Fran is embroidering the centre panel in a quilted wall hanging
|Lucy Locket - very pretty|
And Jo and Lesley had challenged each other to make a miniature quilt
|each square is half (yes 1/2") an inch -|
Not quite finished but a very proud reveal
You can read more about the process here and here (when they have updated!)
Just goes to show the difference two peoples 1/4" seam allowance can be. The original pattern measured 68" x 72" - these measure 15" x 16 1/2" (ish)

Angel Festival at
The Parish Church of St Mary, Higham Ferrers
weekend of 22nd November
We have volunteered an Angel for this event
Well, we have said that we will make little Angel dolls to hang around the church, rather than one large display.
We have a pattern for you to use. Samples are available to view
If you would like to make an angel of your own, then please see Lesley, Ellen, Ena for a copy for you to borrow. Your Angel will be included in the display, and will be returned to you after the event.
If you do not want an angel of your own, we would really like you to make one anyway. We will provide a kit and your angel will be sold at the event. Please let Lesley or Ena know.
If you would like to make more than one Angel, we will not be stopping you!!
If we ALL make one Angel, we should have 89 for the church, and knowing you lovely ladies, we are bound to make that up to 100 (which is a much nicer number don't you think?)
We will have a Monday Afternoon and a Wednesday evening when we can do this, or you can make yours at home in your own good time. They are not hard and will not take up too much of your time.
Our WW1 pieces will be displayed at Finedon Flower Festival and Great Doddington Festival weekends in September. Could we please have your pieces back week commencing 8th September. They will be taken from Finedon to Great Doddington and then returned to you. For those of you who wanted to donate your pieces, they will be handed over to Higham Ferrers British Legion at the end of September.
Please feel free to leave a
